Thank you for the congratulations. The ham community really seems to be a great bunch of people. It's day 13 now and still nothing. If nothing happens today then I can call the ARRL and/or FCC on Monday. I did send the VEs from our session a polite email (using their firstname.lastname@example.org). Two of those went through and the other was bounced (assuming he wasn't using the mail forward at ARRL). I've heard nothing from either of them yet either. Totally agree ARRL needs to upgrade how they're managing this. It's pointless to make people wait this long in the Internet age. The most common likelihood seems to be the packet was mailed late by whichever VE was given the task. Then, with Field Day approaching, perhaps ARRL has more submissions than usual to work through. It's all speculation though. Have to say, I'm not exactly anxious to join the ARRL anymore. I was looking forward to partnering with them. I thought it was great that they were helping build the hobby, that they had a testing session scheduled near my home. I was looking forward to getting my callsign @arrl.net. Now? I'm a little bitter over all of this.
