Custom Illuminated Callsigns

Handcrafted in Canada

Hamshack is proud to support small Canadian businesses and we’re very pleased to support Art by Selina and her quality custom-made LED Acrylic Callsigns. Each sign is hand-crafted by Selina and her team and offered on hamshack to Amateur Radio Clubs, organized club groups and individual amateurs. 

Loaded with Features...

Your station callsign and other details are displayed on the left side of the sign, leaving room for a very impressive ‘ON-AIR’ logo etched on the right side of the sign. The ON-AIR portion of the sign is on (lit-up) by default, but you do have the option of wiring the ON-AIR graphic so that it is illuminated with your transceivers PTT. Or you can opt for a simple toggle switch.

Either way, the ON-AIR symbol is a great way to let family members know that you’re ON-AIR and not to be disturbed!

The Custom LED Acrylic Callsigns are powered with a 12-Volt DC wall transformer which provides power to illuminate your Callsign positioned on the left side of your sign.

There’s a separate 12-volt DC input located in the centre base of the unit which is used to illuminate the ON-AIR feature located on the right half of the sign. You can use a toggle switch or wire directly to the PTT circuit of your transceiver.

A schematic is provided to help you configure either option.    

The standard LED Acrylic Callsigns are approximately 9 1/2″ wide, 4 1/4″ high, 1 3/4″ deep and custom sizes are available. Each order is tested to ensure they meet quality assurance standards before securely packing for shipment. Your box will include:

  1. Your Customized LED Acrylic Callsign
  2. DC 12-volt wall power adapter
  3. Schematic for ON-AIR wiring options
  4. Instruction Sheet with cleaning instructions
  5. Packing Slip with order information and Inspection details.

Complete the Order Form below to order your Customized LED Acrylic Callsign. Your sign will be custom made to your specific requirements, so the information provided is used to design and layout your custom sign. Use the Form to enter:

Once the folks at Art by Selina receive your order they’ll prepare a ‘proof’ for you to review and approve. Some designs may be quite complicated, so you’ll receive an email to clarify any design details before the ‘acrylic meets the laser’!

Each sign takes about 5 business days to complete after you approve the final proof. Delivery via Canada Post generally takes a week or two depending on your location. You can also arrange for pickup.  

Callsigns are Free for Clubs!

Club Signs are FREE. You read it correctly – Clubs get their signs FREE thanks to the awesome Team at Art by Selina. It’s hoped that this generous offer will help strengthen the amateur radio community, and help to ‘showcase’ these unique must-have additions to any amateur radio club shack.     

Clubs must have a formal structure including a President, Secretary and Treasurer and a website which clearly indicates this structure, to qualify for the give-away, and subsequent discounted sales for organized groups within the Club.

Does your club qualify for a Free Callsign?

Club Structure

Custom Callsigns are offered at NO CHARGE to amateur radio clubs who maintain a Website which lists the Club President, Secretary and Treasurer. The Club President will be contacted by email, so this individual’s email address must be listed on the Website.

There is a limit of 1 (one) Custom Callsign per Club and the Club is responsible for covering Canada Post shipping fees, or any other courier requested by the Club.

Callsign Format

Free Club Callsigns incorporate basic design with a standard font and red and blue colours. The Club Logo must be displayed on the Callsign and the Callsign must also include the Club name.

Check the Cape Brenton Amateur Radio Club CBARC for design ideas.

Free Club Callsigns are produced as and when time permits, with priority given to Club Group and individual Callsigns.

Pay it Forward

Organized Clubs receive their Custom Callsigns FREE, through a generous offer made possible by Selina at 'Art by Selina'

It's hoped that Clubs recognize the effort and cost of this initiative and do their part to further promote these unique Custom Callsigns by: displaying your Callsign on your Club's website; adding a link back to; and displaying your Club Callsign at Club Meetings and other in-person events. Please also consider purchasing Callsigns for your various Club Groups
