    I'd guess that as operators either change their signs (by choice or
    move) or die off, those original signs would become available to
    Nancy, the W9ODR Call Sign issued to Me was held by someone earlier.
    When I got the license change in the mid 1970's I looked in the
    Amateur Radio Callbook and saw the previous owner lived in Illinois.
    I wouldn't know if the Ham Moved away from the 9th district to one of
    the other districts (0 - 8) or if He passed away.

    Ah, so I was right in my surmise.... :)
