I'm about to permanently move to another US state, which is in another callsign zone. Will I be forced to get a new callsign in the new zone?
Also, when I started, when one was traveling in another zone, one was required to identify that fact, e.g. "W6HAM/7" in CW, or "W6HAM mobile 7" on voice. I have vague memories of that requirement being lifted, maybe in the late 70's or early 80's... But just to check, that's not required, right? Do people still sometimes give their callsign that way anyway, or has the numeric zone largely lost its social significance, the way area codes mostly have in the cellphone era?
I haven't really been active for several decades :-)
