no. I know a zero is a zero. What I mean is... if I live in colorado which is and I want a vanity I could be K4FDE even though it's not part of the state which I live in that is designated. Does the FCC allow that or not? All i'm saying is that you can't necessarily tell where people are from with a vanity.
See you on the trail
