    That seems like a longer than usual wait these days. I'd wait just a tad longer and contact the VE team if nothing happens. It doesn't happen often, but VE teams are volunteers, and sometimes the guy who is supposed to send the results in fails to do so immediately.

    But not recently, I hope. FCC's turnaround time recently has been more like 1-2 weeks. That's why I suggested waiting just a little longer.

    We had a situation here some years ago where the VE's turned in the paperwork, but two applications got stuck together (don't eat sugar donuts prior to the exam). The VE team had to contact FCC, who found the missing paperwork and processed the license.

    But there have also been extremely rare cases where the paperwork simply didn't get filed.

    Where are you looking? We don't have your information, so we can't look for you.

    When I passed my first test, I waited and waited for more than a month... when I fimally called them, they told me that they had run out of the paper used
    for printing the licenses.. Guess there was something special about it.. They gave me my call sign and verbal permission to get on the air.. Now they are printed
    on regular office depot paper..

    Good luck and welcome.. Hope to work you soon.

    Cool - that's a good callsign, too.

    Now, go get on the air. If you don't have a rig already, get on EchoLink.
