I am a technician

Pass the test.  Only missed 3.  Now onto the General.  They had 18 people in the room taking the test.  1 was Extra, 3 were General, the rest were Technician.

They were asking everyone that finished the Tech if they wanted to take the general, all were saying no, so they stopped asking.  When they came to me they had all the paper work filled out, i said that i wanted to take the general, they said "you going to make us fill every thing out again"  I said no, see you in a month. I was pissed. Well it will give me more time to study.

I'm just cranky enough I'd have said yes!  Congrats on the Tech!  I'll be waiting for your General so we can get together on-air.

Yea, someone else passed, and it took way longer than it should of to get upgraded.. I passed Saturday, We will see how long it takes to get the upgrade. I'll check on Friday but I assume middle of the week next week is when i'll see it.

I emailed him asking him if there was a problem and this was his reply:

no just a back log at ARRL
             AB7JF /Just Fred

I will contact him again in a few days if something is not posted.  Rockntoy took the test the day after me, i wonder if he has his call name yet?

Hey Scuba, what does AARL have to do with it?  Just asking.  I thought FCC was the  agency.
Congratulations on joining the ranks.
