I think they issue call signs in the order that you finished the test. Were you a speedy test taker?

The FCC cares not who finished first. They do not issue by alphabetical order. It is random.
The bundle of tests will be sent to the FCC and then callsigns will be generated by how they are entered. If Mrs. Farr was first on the list, she gets the next available call. If Mr. Zettl is first, he does. The testing session VEC has nothing to do with who gets what call. We may not even see all sequential call signs, even though the group will be subbmitted at the same time. Gubment is like that.

I figure when the call sign comes, it comes. I've just been having fun - heck, I don't even have a radio yet that I can listen on let alone talk on so I'm in no hurry. And with a vowel challenged last name like I have it is always a crap shoot to see if whoever enters the information in gets it right or not. Sometimes I'm Zettle, Zehl, Zettel, etc. etc.

As far as the test taking, it wasn't near as "structured" as I though it would be which was fine by me. By that I mean we didn't all sit down at the same time, get tests, and then all start at the same time. Some started earlier than others, some finished earlier than others. Heck, 1/2 the group was still over at Chipotle eating burritos while others were already taking the test so by the time they started taking the test some of us were already done. In the end I think that worked out better for the VEs and VEC as it gave them a chance to sort of spread the overall load out a tad

Wow. Guess it may have been a waste of time to get the radio installed for the Kokopelli Trail ride this weekend.

I don't think so. You can listen (and you should listen to repeaters and hams a lot at first to get the lingo and technique) and if it's an emergency, you have it there. I certainly would not be the one to encourage you to key up illegally or anything, but it's the middle of the desert and there's no one around.
