      Subject: [GRARA] Callsign Equivalent(s) of "555" Telephone Numbers

       

       

      Need this for my writing. Hollywood uses "555" numbers, and "Klondike" prefixes (for pre-1962-set films) to keep movie & TV watchers from calling the numbers. Is there an equivalent for amateur radio call signs? I can see someone looking up a call sign after watching a movie and calling them. . .

      I need the info for my writing; I'd use mine, but it's a 2x3 call and I'd like to upgrade it someday.

      On what has to be the remotest shred of staying ion topic, I looked up teh callsigns of Danny Dunn & Irene Miller, two main characters of the Sanny Dunn Sci-Fi books published 1957-1974, and found out their calls were available. Now taht's a great question for a quiz bowl.
