To get your technician's license, you have to pass
an exam consisting of 35 multiple-choice questions. If you answer
74% or more correctly, you're a ham! All questions on the written
ham radio exams are drawn from a public "pool" of questions.
You can download
all of the multiple-choice questions and answers from American
Radio Relay League (ARRL) web site.
ARRL has great information
and resources to help you obtain your first ham license- a Technician
license. ARLL has developed the web site Hello-Radio to
give you an overview of Ham Radio and how you
can get started.
One of the best ways to prepare to take the test
for your license is to take Practice tests that are available
from many sources. All of the practice tests ask EXACTLY same
questions, but they use different formats to present the questions
and answers. Below are some site where you can practice.
When you are ready to take your test, you can find
a testing location near you.
BARK and Yolo ARES will be holding test session on the 8th of September in Woodland. It will be at the LDS Chapel at 850 Pioneer Ave. The session will start at 0730 hours and remain open until around noon.
This is a good opportunity to have someone you know get their technician license or for someone to upgrade to General or Amateur Extra.
