FCC practice is to change deleted call signs by prepending a "D".
There is still a limited period in which an applicant can petition to
rescind the deletion, so they must keep the records around for some
time; in practice, deleted stations' records are never deleted from
CDBS (although the "Foo Query" programs are written to exclude them).
If you do a CDBS application search for "DWPEP" you can see a
poor-quality PDF of the station's original license, from back in 1950.
