What is it about?
To gain all privileges on HF along with the full spectrum used in Amateur Radio (Ham Radio), that person(s) need to be licensed and know the rules to operate legally. US licenses are good for 10 years before renewal and anyone may hold one except a representative of a foreign government. In the US there are three license classes—Technician, General, and Extra.
The world of HF Amateur Radio is vast and it starts with a 35 question FCC licensing test to upgrade that person(s) privileges. There are many places to get study material or even take practice tests. The General License Ham Radio class is part of ongoing series structured to get you to pass the test. After you pass the test there will be encouragement from the Patriot VE Team and Colorado Ready to learn more.
The class is led and taught by ARRL register instructor(s) from both Patriot VE Team and Colorado Ready.
Studying is the key to passing the exam/test and practicing the questions in any form is the key. Below are just a few places that you can find some study materials:
- Fortune Favors the Prepared Amateur (Ham) Radio Learning Resources
- KB6NU No-Nonsense Study Guides
- Ham Radio Outlet – Gordon West
- Ham Radio Outlet – ARRL
Volunteer Examining Team
The Patriot VE Team is providing the testing locations and the volunteers to man the testing.
