The Hualapai Amatuer Radio Club call sign WB6RER was obtained from Andy Devine.  It's meaning is - "Whiskey Bravo Six Red Eyed Rooster". Andy Devine was often referred to as the Red Eyed Rooster so he really liked this call sign.  He traveled to the East Coast and obtained this call sign from another Ham operator.  The Hualapai Amateur Radio Club obtained Andy Devine's call sign by request to the family after his death.  The family wrote to the FCC and asked that the call sign be transferred to the club.
