Then I wonder what callsigns the Air Force gets.
Nevertheless, there was a shortwave broadcasting station that got an N
callsign a few years ago. I believe it is either no longer operating or
no longer operating with the N callsign. Or perhaps it got a CP and never
got on the air. I don't remember the details and haven't the time right
now to peruse through old issues of Monitoring Times to find it.
