"Ram" 276. Cute!

It sort of reminds me of NYPD's callsign, KOP911.

Luck of the draw, I expect. Relatively mnemonic and the kids donít have any trouble remembering it.

I suspect NYPD had some high friends in low places inside the FCC and helped them get "COP 9-1-1" for a callsign. The callsign KOP911 is an old callsign and predates the ULS by many years.

My GMRS callsign KAE9013 was issued in 1992 and resembles an old Class D (27MHz) CB callsign and predates the ULS by a few years. The KA part of the callsign was assigned to Class A CB stations, aka GMRS. All of that is history now with callsigns being issued through the ULS. It also makes me wonder what the callsign format will be after the ULS someday issues WZZZ999. We are already up into the WR's now for callsigns issued through the ULS.

Wow! That brings back memories. I'm not sure where in my dusty, crusty brain this came from, but your comment reminded me that my CB call sign was KAGC9776. IIRC, this was assigned to me in the mid-70's, pre-"Smokey and the Bandit".
