Don't plan to, I'm fine with my callsign.  I thought of using my initials at one point, but phonetically, it sounds like crap and isn't easy to say.

Congratz!

I take it from your comments that you have a radio(s) and just need to get on an icy roof to put up your antennae?

Close... I have an older FT-101ZDMK3 a FT-8900R, FT-60R, and UV-5R+, however I live in an area that has an HOA, so I'm planning on trying to conceal a mini buddipole I have on my deck railing.   Either that or convince my bank that I need a tarheel and run the antenna off my truck, or a MFJ-1788.  Really want to be able to get on the 40m freqs (I know Extra isn't necessary for that).

I've got HOA issues as well.  Buy some dark brown insulated 14ga copper wire.  It's almost invisible on my roof.  I put a nice little 40m off center fed dipole up there and it's working for me on 40/20/15/10/6
