Pedro call sign SEA


Pedro Call Sign  SEA - Vietnam - Thailand

 

Period  before  1966

Mr. Joe Ballinger, in his messages to Mr. Steve Mock *) on 20 Nov 2006, clarifies the assignment strategy of Call Signs as follows : "The Call Signs from NKP were the AFSAL classified ones that changed every 7 to 10 days. Just the names, not the numbers. 21 was always 60-0279, 22 was 60-0280 and 41 was 62-4510."
