Hi Jeff and the BB,

I just found both applications on the ARRL website. (the old form, date 
and the new form, date Jan. 2011)  see following website:


It looks like instead of a flat $10 fee, they now have gone to multiple fees
for postage, the application and number of contacts.   If I'm comprehending
this correctly, if you apply for additional VUCC sticker, in the US and a 
member, and turn in 60 cards, it would cost you the following:

$1 postage,  $7 application fee, and $.20 x 60 = $12 for a total of $20.00

Is this correct?  I welcome all replies, if not.

73 all,
