I did a walk-in HAM test last Saturday in Monument and passed. How long after you pass your test does it usually take for your license info to show up on the FCC database system?

About 3 days

Congrats Randy, going for a vanity?

Some people say its silly, but I remember peoples vanity call signs. I have a hard time remembering the non vanity ones. like it's easy to remember Matt as W0RDY, Tim as K0NAK, Rachel as K0DOR (daughterofromer), Wes as W0REK, Kevin as K0UBN, Jeff as K0ZET, but I kept forgetting Marco's who I talked to quite a bit last month at Moab

But then again I am old

K0ROM clear

I keep meaning to get a vanity....

It is hard for me to remember sometimes even :D

Congrat Randy on getting your call sign!!! you'll really dig it..

Perry, chop chop man, you've only got a month left...
