The ACMA advised the WIA that a number of amateurs had sought Advanced three letter callsigns commencing with the letter "O". Previously that block had not been used because of a fear of confusion between the letter "O" and the numeral "0".

The opinion of the WIA was sought. The Directors took the view that as phonetics are almost universally used and as other countries used such a block without apparent difficulty, there seemed to be no reason why that block could not be used.

The ACMA has now released the block of three letter callsigns commencing with the letter "O" for Advanced licensees. All available three letter "O" callsigns are now visible on the Public List of Available Callsigns here on the WIA website.
