Wlynn: Whats the call sign????
« on: April 30, 2012, 07:39:33 PM »
Well?????

I applied for a vanity call today  8)

It says cancels but will not be available until Sept 2012.  But i called an agency that for $40 will do all of the leg work for you to get one so your app wont be rejected, and they said it was available now.  We shall see in about 20 days.   Its a 2X1 call that fits perfectly.

Every time I run the search, it says no results.

You applied for "The Number" before you took the test right?   Email your VE and ask them what the story is.

Yes, and I search by both FRN and name, no results yet.  Keep in mind, mine was one of a HUGE handful sent from a very busy hamfest.

The test room made me smile, so many people, and some I talked to are going to try HTOL.

I hope you get it, I'm not holding my breath, won't harass anyone this week about it.   Might start making noise when the coming Monday gets here.

Well, mine is up today (5/4/12), and I only tested last Sunday (4/29)...you might start making a bit of noise.

Yep, and I hear it can be worse when it's one of a huge stack from the test room at a hamfest.  Some folks have waited 6 or 7 weeks under the same circumstances.
