My buddy Shannon took his first amateur radio licensing test last Tuesday. We spent weeks trying to find him an exam session, jumping from club to club. We successfully found a VE session 50 miles from him. He passed both the Tech and General exams with flying colors! The VEs told him it would take 7 to 10 days before the FCC would post his license on their website. That was surprising to me, as I had seen the W5YI group get me a club call in two days within the last year. Oh well, technology does change and sometimes not for the better.
And then, 7 days later, Shannon sends me this link this morning: FCC not processing test results
What bum luck he has! Hopefully the fine folks in IT will get the problem solved quickly. A new ham awaits his call!
