Become a Ham
What is Amateur Radio??
To get a Ham Radio license, you do need to take a written multiple choice test. A great study guide is the American Radio Relay League's Ham Radio License Manual.
If you're interested in self study, David Casler KE0OG has put together a great video series to go along with the ARRL License Manual to help you. You can visit his site at http://www.ke0og.net/training or you can view a play list of his videos here. Thank you Dave Casler for putting these videos together!
All of the questions on the test are multiple choice. The questions and answers are in the license manual and will be worded exactly as listed on the test. You can take practice tests online at http://www.qrz.com/hamtest.
Amateur Radio has many different things you can play and experiment with from emergency service, Morse code, amateur television, slow scan tv, data modes, satellite and space station work, and bouncing signals on the moon. We have monthly meetings where we discuss an interesting subject. Our meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend; no license required.
