Gate 2

OK guys, this gate 2 business, or rather rumors is getting out of hand.
First of all, if you bother to read the instructions, you will have the
correct address to send the form to, and that address has a POST OFFICE
number in it.

Secondly, the Mellon bank does not time stamp applications, only date
stamp them.

Thirdly, the FCC does not process these forms first, the Mellon bank does,
and processing will begin at 0000:01 on Monday, September 23. In case you're
interested, the Mellon bank is pissed as hell at the FCC for opening the
gate on a Monday because it gives them 2 days backlog.

Try talking to the right people to get the correct information, and don't
screw up some guy by putting out false rumors.

Best of luck to all

That's a very good question, as I expect to upgrade to extra this month. I
however am only interested in 1 call. (W5ZX of course :) since K5ZX is taken)
