The Special Event Call Sign System meets the needs of amateur operators 
for temporary operation of their stations during events that are of 
special significance to the amateur service community. 

A Special Event Call Sign is an amateur station call sign with a 
one-by-one call sign format that may be reserved for assignment to 
stations operating in conjunction with these short-term events.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Just what is considered an "...event of special significance to the 
amateur service community?

A. There are only 750 call signs available for temporary use. A special 
event operation usually commemorates an event which is publicly 
significant. Ideally, this is a one time, non-recurring celebration, 
festival, anniversary, holiday, convention, dedication, public 
demonstration and the like. Special event call signs may not be 
requested just so that you will be able to have a short call sign during 
an upcoming amateur radio operating event or contest. A special event 
call sign coordinator may determine that your planned special event 
operation is not in keeping with the intent of the Special Event Call 
Sign System. Coordinators have wide latitude in the acceptance, 
rejection or cancellation of 1x1 call sign reservations.


Please be sure that in the future your requests for 1x1 calls conform to 
the intent of the 1x1 special event call sign program.
