Gamma Sigma Sigma does not have an "official" call or hand sign, although I know that quite a number of individual chapters use them. Many of those chapters are at HBCU and/or in the south. I'm ancient, though, so I can only go from what I see in photos appearing in our publication and on individual chapter websites.
I know nothing about where "Wee-oop" came from. Perhaps someone from a chapter that uses a call sign can help there.
As for the hand sign that chapters use being the "same" as used in Sigma Gamma Rho, I'm guessing because it's supposed to represent a Sigma, versus the number seven in sign language. But I don't know that for a fact because A. my chapter didn't use hand signs and B. I don't pretend to know anything about Sigma Gamma Rho.
