Hi all, Just passed my Foundation license.

So next I need to select a M7 callsign with additional 3 letters. Can these letters be a letters and numbers ? There doesn't seem to be much choice if it's just letters.

It's just 3 letters, I take it you'll looked through the spreadsheet of calls?

You can only select from the M7 call block Online but if you do a Manual Application costing £20 you can select a call from either the M3 or M6 call blocks, see https://www.essexham.co.uk/essex-ham-chat/new-ofcom-callsign-spreadsheet-released

Congratulations on getting your licence!
When you go to the Ofcom portal where you get the licence, you can choose whether to get a random three letter combination, in which case the next available combination will be allocated, or you can choose to select a suffix of your choice. In that case, the system will allow you to try any combination you want, and if that combination is not available it will ask you to choose another one. You can have as many tries as you want, but obviously it's a good idea to have a shortlist first.

It's probably just me missing something but when I follow the link to the callsign spreadsheet it just takes me to FOI Request letter ???

Sorry, I accidentally responded to M5AKA's post - I meant to reply here and used the wrong box.
