As I said, I'm sure that he had a G3Pxx/T callsign - but according
to QRZ, there is no G3Pxx today. However, there IS a G6Pxx - but as
the name isn't his, I guess it isn't him (unless his G6 has been
recycled - which is unlikely)
There were also a few G2xxx/T callsigns issued according to my 1964
edition. I suspect that all the /T calls were converted to G6xxx when
they started to issue the G8 series.
In my 1963 callbook, the following are listed (among the other
callsigns) as /T:
G2UJ/T, G2CCM, G2CIK, G2DUS, G3ACK, G3GDR, G3HII, G3KFH, G3KHN, G3KKD,
G3KPX, G3KQJ, G3LCM, G3LGJ, G3LJI, G3LOS, G3LTC, G3MDY, G3MEO. G3MFT.
G3MMX, G3MQC, G3MSN, G3MST, G3MTV, G3MUB, G3MUR, G3MXW, G3MXY, G3MYD,
G3NDT, G3NGL, G3NJO, G3NML, G3NNH, G3NOX, G3NNQ,G3NTT, G3NWA, G3OAC,
G3OAL, G3OBE, G3OPB, G3ORZ, G3OUH, G3OUM, G3OYM, G3PAX, G3PDO, G3PEG,
G3PEH, G3PEI, G3PEN, G3PGF, G3PJE, G3PJG, G3PNG, G3PQH, G3PRI, G3PRL,
G3PUR, G3PUV, G3PVE, G3PWF, G3PXX, G3PZY, G3RAP, G3RAX, G3RAY, G3RBA,
G3RBV, G3REC, G3RES, G3RGX, G3RGZ.
In 1968, all the G2s and the G3s who were licensed for TV are listed in
a separate TV category - but with the 2s and 3s now changed to 6s
(including the guy I knew). [There is also a fair number of new
in-sequence callsigns.] Where the amateur also had a normal G2 or G3
Class-A licence, the corresponding original G2 or G3 callsign is also
listed (among the other G2s and the G3s).
The G6/Ts are still listed in 1974 - but I see that in 1984 all the G6s
are Class-B callsigns. [There are no /Ts at all.] From what I can see,
the G6 callsigns are assigned to completely different people, and are
not simply the G6Ts minus the /T.
So what happened to those who only had a G6/T licence (and had no G2 or
G3)? Were they assigned something completely new, such as G1 callsign?
