    I'm posting this here because I remember several of you are radio operators.

    Well after putting it off forever I'm finally going to go and take the test to get my Tech class license.

    Any advice ? What to expect ? I bought Gordon West’s training book and read through it. A 384 question pool is pretty intimidating.

    How was it when you took it ?

    Go through the book and highlight the answers.

    Then, go through and read the questions and the correct answers.

    When you get to the test, the correct answers will "jump" out at you.

    Then, go back and learn the theory behind the questions.

    This worked for me, anyway, on all except the Extra test. I learned to hate that book....

    But I passed it

      Steven, I agree with Jack. You may want to try a practice exam. They are available at:

      Exam

      If you study and do well on the practice exam you will have no problem. And do not stop at Tech keep going. Good luck and 73, Bill AD6MJ

        Good Luck! I also took the book and highlighted the answers. If there is something that you don't understand, read up on the subject. Most of the test you are taking is common sense. Let us know how you did!

        That reminds me, like some of my friends do, I have to fix my radios and get back on the air.

                    If I still had my HF rig, I would suggest that we all get on for a QSO.
