Why do station call letters use w & k?

Wouldn't it be better to use w on the west coast and see on the east

    By international Agreement, Station Call letters were assigned to each country.

    W and K were assigned to the United States

    It was a decision made in the early days of radio and has nothing to do with geography.

    WKRP Cincinnati. KGO San Francisco. Illogical.

    That's what the FCC came up with when they were assigning call letters.  W east of the Mississippi, and K west of the Mississippi.
