Well I gave them my email so hopefully I get notified once the callsign hits the database and I can print out my certs if I wanted to.strogg wrote:Congrats!locke_n_load wrote:VE guy who was helping with Exams said it took around 10 days.

It's typically only a few days wait.
I'd still expect 10 days. I took my exam on 2/25 this year, and the FCC issued the call sign on 3/7. The FCC usually runs on an oddball schedule, where they will sit on application for a set amount of time, then process them in batches only a handful of times per week. I suggest you get an FRN number from the FCC so you can track status, print your license when available, etc.
What equipment are you planning on getting?
Currently have a Baofeng UV-5R with NA-771 antenna for now, once I get proficient I don't know - would like a rig upstairs with an antenna on the roof. And one in the truck too, as funds permit.
