GA is a special prefix for amateurs resident in Scotland, valid from January 25, 2014 until November 30, 2014 in honour of the Homecoming Scotland celebration, the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow this summer, and the independence referendum to be held of September 18th. The "A" in the prefix stands for Alba, the Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland. You will also hear MA, and 2A prefixes during this period.
Please ignore the flag and country given next to this callsign above. I emphatically am not in England!! (And please do not think this is an expression of anti-English sentiment - it is factually wrong to place holders of the GA/MA/2A prefix anywhere else than Scotland.) I have asked the administrators to change this.

The last time we had this special prefix was in 2009, when I worked several hundred stations. As of mid-September I have worked around 1200 stations with this prefix and look forward to working many more.
