A  call sign is a unique identifier used in wireless communications. In OpenStreetMap you can map call signs that are assigned to radio stations, clubs, repeaters and (aero)nautical beacons. (Call signs are also issued to vehicles, ships, aircraft and licensed radio operators, but of course we can't map those because they are not stationary.)
