Facebook now allows call signs on profiles.

Finally hams are getting some love from Facebook. Officially licensed amateur (ham) radio operators may now use their call sign as their Alternate Name, or nickname, on their individual profiles.

Jeff KB1PNB, who works at the Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park, California found a petition on an amateur radio Facebook Group to which he belongs, and then did some research, wrote the necessary code, then got it reviewed and approved.

HUGE THANKS to everyone who supported this petition.

Instructions on how to do this can be found here.
