PostSubject: My first License   August 23rd 2011, 12:34 pm

When I was in Southern California, I had a great Elmer who lived in Garden Grove, Ed Corbin.
I received my First License and it was published Radio Amateur Callbook Magazine 50th Anniversary Edition.
WA6ICO.
I let it lapse after moving to the Northwest.
I took the Exam again in about 1997 and passed with about 20 others at Olympic College. Very Happy

PostSubject: Now going for My General   September 4th 2018, 9:49 am

I took the Plunge and now am studying for My General Class License.
The Question Bank may Change after June 30, 2019 so I had better get going. I did purchase 3 books,

2 from A.R.R.L. General Class License Manual and General Class Q & A booklet, for $63.40

I also Purchased a 3rd Booklet by Gorden West, WB6NOA 2015-2019 FCC Element 3 Amateur Radio License Preparation,  Booklet for About $32.00 (I passed my Technicians Exam using Gorden West's book back in 1986.)

I am not that Impressed with the A.R.R.L. Q & A book (kinda dry IMHO absolutely no visual diagrams or illustrations) My score =

The other two are Great!!!!!!!!.  My score = Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven

*****
I also Downloaded a Free Program but Norton's refused to let it download as it was an EX type file so I had to circumvent the block just till I could get it down-loaded then raised my blocker back up.

I reasoned if His call sign was valid He would get in big trouble if the program was anything but reliable.
N3FJP's Amateur Exam STUDY PROGRAM 4.1

HERE'S A link IF YOUR INTERESTED.
click Here for Program download
WWW.n3fjp.com

It has all the bells and whistle's
Technician portion, General Portion, and Extra
It allows you several option buttons AT THE BOTTOM of the screen which are:

(HINT) - (PREVIOUS) - (NEXT) - (BACK 20) - (FORWARD 20) - (RANDOM) - (LEAST CORRECT) - (RESET HISTORY).


IT SHOWS FOUR ANSWERS WHICH ARE SHOWN IN 4 ROWS with the answer button beside each A,B,C,D.
At the top of the screen are shown ( TOTAL CORRECT) =, (TOTAL INCORRECT)=, (PERCENTAGE)=  (%THAT ARE CORRECT)

It gives on the next line below that the QUESTION #  and references  the F.C.C number in brackets [ ******* ]
On the block below that is the actual question.
OH! I almost forgot to Add this. It has a Frequency Band with Modes of operation and actual frequencies shown for each MODE.



I find it very useful.

I should have gotten my license years ago.  A few years back I made a new friend in town and he found out about my interest in radios.  He and another guy in town started an amatuer radio club and he talked me into it. In 2016 I got my Tech. license and decided to also study for the general.

Here is a link to a great study site;
  http://www.hamradiolicenseexam.com/

It does have a very modest cost but worth it!
