I do not know how accurate this is, but I saw it on another forum & my signs are there.

To find a callsign on windows hit ctrl & F, then enter the callsign in the search box.

Have you kept your m6 validated?
It shows my M3 & my2E0 LSX calls. Plus my wifes & my daughters callsigns.

Sidetrack - as I'm plainly out of touch, does this mean that now if you change your licence level you keep the old callsign and can use it? There aren't any G8Z's at all - so I assume old A and B ones were exclusive and the old ones just vanished when you passed the CW test?

Currently when you pass the next level if you keep validating the old (lesser) callsign, then it remains valid. The legality of having more than one callsign is slightly different, however there is no UK mechanism for requiring you to surrender the old callsign.
I believe under international agreements, we should only hold one personal callsign per country. However Ofcom were happy to issue me with a second full callsign several years ago that had been issued to a family member & I already had M3LSX, 2E0LSX & M0LSX.

When there was a yearly licence fee people upgrading tended to only want to pay for the one licence..

Got my M6 in June 2014 and 20 in November 2014 so not up for validation but did both last year.
