Effective 0600 hours this date, the callsign at State OES Headquarters is W6SIG. W6SIG was the call at the Sacramento Army Depot since 1946. The Federal Communications Commission recognizes the outstanding record of W6SIG in support of public service. With the closing of the Army Depot, the call W6SIG will live on in continued service to the people of California. This was made possible through the efforts, cooperation, and support of the Commission and W6SIG trustee General Jimmie Felts, W6RQO.
CA State OES began the Bulletins in the early 1950's to assist agencies and radio operators to become more familiar with RACES. They were issued periodically until 1985, at which time they began to be issued weekly over voice and digital radio systems of Amateur Radio and in print. Originally intended for California, increased demand, and a 1988 request by the ARRL for national distribution, led to their eventual worldwide distribution.
