There's a Wal-Mart distribution center right next to FNL where I fly out of. I guess when flying over it in the pattern, I could see how many confused faces I generate when I say I'm over "CHARGE"
I have a book that tells the call sign for just about every North American airline, only thing is I can't find it right now because I am still unpacking in my new apartment. I'll let you know if I find it.

I believe that callsigns were originally created for brevity on the radio, in order to prevent frequency congestion. Military squadrons use callsigns for that very reason (Phoenix 23, etc). Alot of airlines probably choose their callsigns just because they're pretty cool!! CC Air, out in NC (when they existed) used "Carolina", and Northwest Airlink is pretty cool with "Flagship". Others are just pretty boring...lol.
