Well damn. I got all excited because there's a test session nearby in Seattle (as I'm home for christmas atm) and tried to contact the VEC because it said no walk-ins, but his phone is apparently out of service, and email isn't working either. And there's no other exams back in WY where I go to school until July. Sheeeeeit.

Actually, scratch that. Got it all figured out, I'm officially testing tomorrow!

Yep! Though I'm finding out really quick that there's only two repeaters I can reach, one of which is private and the other seems pretty dead most of the time. :|

Just a heads up; I'm studying for my general ticket and money is a little tight, so I did something I haven't done in a while... I went to my local library. It turns out they have all the ARRL books!

That and some flash cards should have me ready in short order.
