I too am licensed but haven't been active for many years. I gained my first callsign ZL2WI in 1968 and then moved to ZL4 in 1971. There, I held the call ZL4FI until 1974. While down south at that time, my old call remained vacant. As soon as I heard that I was moving, on promotion, back to ZL2, I applied to get my old call back. Thus, from late 1974, I have been ZL2WI. Later, the rules were changed here in ZL in that callsigns were not changed when a licensee moved districts.
Only equipment these days is an ancient Icom 22S and a Kenwood TS 120. The latter has a blown PTT chip resulting from a failed packet radio experiment. Can't get a replacement chip.
