    And better luck next time! (It took me several tries before I got mine.)

    So true regarding the D,B &V when called non-phonetically. I was N5AVF. The "V" was forever getting mangled on phone so I jumped at the chance to drop the V when I saw N5AF was coming available. I managed to win the 1x2 lottery just last week. There were a total of 8 applications for the call, so I consider myself fortunate.

    I stayed up late when it became available and applied at 1:05AM (Central). My understanding is the FCC's "day clock" starts at 2AM Eastern. By examining the FCC filing numbers for the call listed on the AE7Q site, I think I was the first applicant.
