He wasn't missing. He knew exactly where he was the whole time.

Congrats to both of you!

Maybe when things slow down for me, I'll have some time to study and take the exam. Too many irons in the fire right now to really concentrate.

Thanks, Jerry, I miss you too!

Steve,

do you guys E-file for new applicants or mail to ARRL?

FYI, if anyone's interested I put a nice Ham setup up for sale...

Sorry, didn't see the above post until today.

Currently when we give and exam, we send the results to the ARRL via US Mail.

Mailing it on Saturday after the exam usually results in the new licensees or upgrades being posted on the FCC U:S system page on the following Tuesday, generally no later than the following Friday.


We are investigating filing the results electronically, and may do so in the future, but I don't as yet know how much time that will shave off the new license or upgrade being posted.

Our class got their liscenses 10 days from day of test. I'm waiting on my vanity call sign application to go through now might as well do it when I'm just getting started.

FYI folks, there will be a HAM (CRAM) Study Course for the Technician Class License, in Pahrump on Saturday, 9 March 2013 starting at 0800. We will go over all the study materials between 0800 and noon, give you an hour lunch break, then administer the exam at 1300 hours (1PM).

You do, however, need to study them for 30-60 minutes per day for at least two weeks PRIOR to the class!.

We will also administer the exams for upgrades to the General Class and Extra class during the exam session if anyone wants to take those.

Contact me if you need directions on how to acquire the study materials for free, directions to the class/exam location, free online quiz site that will let you take practice exams structured like the real one, etc.

Was a HAM operator years ago as a teenybopper & young adult when you needed Morse Code proficiency to get a license.
Got quite fast at CW after a while.
Threw out bankers boxes full of QSL cards during spring cleaning a few years ago.
Haven't had a rig or a station license for years.
With the advent of cell & then smart phones I thought the old 2 meter & 10 meter bands would be pretty much dead quiet.
Listened around awhile on a scanner a few times and the "old boys" are conspicuous by their absence.
