    Passed my test on March 10 and my call sign just showed up in the ULS a few hours ago.

    Wow, I got my initial call (Tech) and each upgrade (General, Extra) within two days of the exam.

    I assume the fcc database will be updated first, so I should concentrate my search there?

    Eh, it was all for the best. Before the ticket arrived I got a dipole up, my Elmer helped me set up my shack, and he instructed me on how to tune the rig properly. I learned a lot in the time from passing the first ticket and getting on the air. Maybe some artificial length should be built into the online ULS update system.

    I've been eager to get on the air. Bought an HT two weeks ago, tested and passed my Tech on on Sat 6/9. Application showed up in ULS today, but wouldn't you know, it's "offlined for alerts list review" so still now callsign. Out of 98 new license apps today, I'm 1 of 4 that's been "offlined". Makes me not want to even listen to my rig over the weekend since I still won't be able to participate/contribute. Learning a lot about how conversation flow and etiquette though!
