I'll observe that USPS service into the Hartford area has been miserable for the past year...but stuff does seem to (eventually) reach its destination. I agree that it would be nice if every VE team under all the VEC's could do electronic uploads. I was one of the VEs at the Centennial Convention in Hartford a few years ago, and new callsigns were issued within hours -- essentially as quickly as the League person who does the work could send the data up to the FCC. However, achieving electronic uploads would require upgrades with some of the VECs, under conditions where funds to do upgrades are not always available, and some VE team leaders are not necessarily the most computer-proficient individuals. Resolving that latter condition could put some VE teams out of business, which would be a problem in areas where such teams are few and far between.
