Vanity Call Signs
Vanity call signs for individuals in the United States cost $12 from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and are valid for 10 years.
A vanity call sign is a special Amateur Radio call sign specifically chosen by you and is similar to a vanity license plate on a car. All vanity call signs must be unique and vanity call signs are assigned on a "first come, first served" basis.
