Most ARRL VEC VE test sessions will process a renewal at no charge.  Your
renewal form goes in with the batch and on to the FCC.  [Unless it's a
Vanity call, in which case you have to pay the next 10 year Vanity fee,
right now $21.90.]

However:  You can log on to the FCC ULS web site (I don't have the URL handy
but it's accessible from www.fcc.gov) and take care of everything on-line in
a few minutes.  Very streamlined.  I had to wait a few hours (less than 4)
to have my password reset, then I got my Vanity app inputted within about 3
minutes.  Change of address last week didn't even take that long.

However:  If I remember correctly, you have to wait until about 90 days out
before renewing, so you don't have to worry about it until November.

As far as "some outfit in Texas" goes, or anyone else for that matter, why
pay anything for literally a few moments of logging in and checking a box or
two?  (I wonder sometimes if the former owner of that outfit, if it's the
one I think it is, ever gets bothered by what gets done in his name, er,
call... they had a rather outrageous ad, er, "news" post on QRZ.COM a few
weeks ago which offered to sell available vanity calls for somewhere around
$40-50 bucks a pop.  Which only proves that PT Barnum was not only right but
way ahead of his time)
