Congrats on the new license, Lennie.


Congratulations to Len also.

Dee, N8UZE


Thank you, Dee.

Now, what were you saying about the "ARRL VEC handling
'new' applications 'first?'" I know the package of paperwork
from the Sunday exam session (25th) was sent off quickly.

...back to business as usual in here.

Len


I can say with certainty that I mailed my Feb 23rd materials on Saturday the
24th and all my applicants, both new licensees and upgraders showed in the
FCC database on Feb 27. Since I used priority mail, it was almost certainly
in the ARRL's hands on Monday, Feb 24. Perhaps I was lucky enough to beat
the big surge of submittals and to be on top.

Dee, N8UZE

No sweat, Mark. I didn't wait two days. I was busy with
other things that Friday and the ARRL/VEC exam session
was for Sunday afternoon following. A quick call to confirm
that and that was that.

Sad to say, I couldn't trudge barefoot through the snow,
uphill both ways, like all them olde-tymers did. :-) [they
had it soooooo 'tuff'] Just get in the car and drive a mile
and a half down one major street to the fire house (now a
unit of the LA Auxiliary Communication System), wait for
50 minutes while the VE team got themselves together,
wait 10 to 15 minutes after one exam until all four
VEs looked over my paperwork, checking and rechecking
the score sheets. I'll say this for them, they are thorough
in that team. Even inspected my old HP 32SII calculator
to make sure it didn't have any crib sheets inside it. :-)

73, AF6AY

Okay on paying attention to your group. I'm just doubtiing that
the ARRL VEC had the Big Deluge of mail that claimed (but
did not quantify) on their website. That's one reason I did the
tabulation from the FCC Search engine results that started
this thread.

Part of a "deluge" might have been from too many ARRL/VEC
teams adding extra exams on Friday or Saturday, out of the
usual monthly schedules (give or take).

I can understand those with CSCEs wanting to upgrade
(although I don't know why 4 in my exam session thought
they needed that to "modify" their Tech license to a Tech
license under the new rules). :-( There were about 2 who
just needed to change their mailing address, something
which could have been done by mail or by computer
directly...no charge. Judging by all the modifications (not
an upgrade) and the renewals handled by the ARRL, those
could have been done OUTSIDE the need for hand-holding
the free paperwork process on relatively small tasks.

I'm thinking more of the usual "celebrity PR ploy" of the
ARRL "becoming overworked." Not unusual PR tactic.
That kind of PR is done in this city all the time in the
entertainment biz here.

No sweat on that, Mark. I did four test elements in 1956
for my First 'Phone in one sitting. Had to, Chicago was
90 miles away for me then. :-) On Sunday it was just
a mile plus down one major street. :-)

A full California driver license exam is 50 multiple-choice
questions. I've always passed those and have had that
license for 50 years. College-level exams are much
harder and not all are multiple choice. I've always
regarded EVERY day at work to be a "test session"
with NO "practice exams" to do in order to keep a
paycheck coming in. Food and shelter are more
important than any hobby activity...but some think
they get basic survival benefits "automatically." :-(

You would have passed that exam if the VE didn't hate bisexual pagens
morkietard.

but Jim still needs a bit of hazing

Maybe the VE will let you blow him for the extra ticket next time, marqueer.
