Hey Sebastian,

Not sure about Florida checkers ... but I wonder if you have any hamfests coming up near you? You'll often find clubs that will offer card-checking at hamfests. I know a couple of guys who've had their cards checked at hamfests up in this part of the world to either earn their initial VUCC or to earn an endorsement.

Best of luck finding someone, and contgratulations on reaching Satellite VUCC.
