There is nothing quite like the feeling of happiness and anticipation monitoring the FCC ULS after passing your FCC Technician exam. What will my call sign be? I hope it is a good one. Wouldn't it be amazing if it included my initials? Has my new call sign posted yet on ULS? How about now? Better check again a little later... Where is it!? Cue the Carly Simon song, anticipation... is making me wait.
The wait is part of the journey and part of the joy of becoming a ham. It is just as much fun for Elmers too.
