US Amateur Radio Call Area Map
I give presentations on amateur radio to a number of audiences quite a bit. Audiences are usually better served by meaningful, content-related handouts. When explaining why we have numbers in our callsigns, I usually refer to a map of the US Call Areas.
I grew tired of searching for good, quality black and white maps of the US with the amateur radio call areas mapped.
It seems the maps I found were either too small, grainy, or had some artifacts which made them unsuitable for printing or photocopying. I came across a really good, simple, black and white map by Bruce Jones Designs and decided to draw out the US call areas and touch up the map just a bit. I hope you find it useful.
All versions of the map are 1526 x 1195, 32-bit JPG.
