It’s my anniversary, of sorts. Two years ago today I was assigned the Amateur Radio callsign of KK1X by the FCC. I petitioned for it, and paid a fee (otherwise Amateur Radio is essentially free). This call replaced my old KB1HDO call. The call KK1X was previously held by a fellow named Lionel, but Lionel passed away (in ham terms, his “key went silent”) in 1998, and I found the call to be available after doing a lot of digging around in archives.
