    If you upgraded your amateur licence in Australia you had to get a new callsign.

    Same with moving interstate.

    Now the rules have changed. You can upgrade your licence and keep your callsign if you like it. Details from ACMA here:

    What people hear from VK will also change. For example our four letter suffix Foundation callsigns allow 10w output on a few bands. But under the new rules Foundation holders can upgrade to our Standard or Advanced licence and keep their callsign. So you might hear some four letter suffixes on 20 metres in the future. Like with the US system you can look up their licence category online.

    A video on this topic is here:
