How to Pass the Ham Radio Technician License, Ham Radio Extra License and Ham Radio General License Exams, using our easy step-by-step Ham Radio Test study guides, without weeks and months of endless studying...

The Ham Radio Technician License, Ham Radio Extra License and Ham Radio General License Exams are quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

Ham Radio Test scores are used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain Ham Radio Test score.

That is the whole purpose of our Ham Radio License Exam Secrets study guides: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the Ham Radio Test.

How do you get into amateur radio?

How do you get into amateur radio? With just a little study, you can learn all you need to know to get a Technician Class license, which is the license class designed for beginners. To get a Technician Class license, you must take a test with 35 multiple-choice questions and answer 26 questions correctly. Te test covers basic regulations, operating practices, and electrical and electronics theory. Knowing Morse Code is no longer required to get this license, nor any class of license. Technician Class licensees have all amateur radio privileges above 30 MHz, including the very popular 2-meter band. Technicians can also operate Morse Code (CW) on portions of the 80m, 40m, 15m, and 10m bands, and voice and digital modes on portions of the 10m band. Tere are two other license classes: the eeneral Class license and the Amateur xxtra Class license. To get a eeneral Class license, you must pass another 35-question test; the Amateur xxtra Class test has 50 questions. Te tests are progressively more difcult. eeneral Class licensees get phone and digital mode privileges on portions of the 160m, 80m, 60m, 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m bands. Tey can also operate CW and digital modes on the 30m band. Amateur xxtra licensees have all amateur privileges.
