    Lightbulb Ham Radio Links and Resources

    The links below provide information to study, practice, and take the Technician class and General class Amateur Radio License Exam without having to attend a class or "Ham Cram".

    The info is free, so a $15 fee (for the 35 question, multiple choice exam) is all the investment required for the 10 year license. Books and CDs can also be purchased if needed. I used the links below to self study, practice, schedule an exam and obtain my technician license.

    The General license is more advanced, but allows more frequencies. I have two radios now, and they can be completely utilized with the Technician license. Most handheld radios only require a Technician license, and a Technician can access all of the useful Houston and surrounding repeaters to extend their range.

    *I have deleted the "wrong" answers from my pool files, so I could memorize the question and the right answer. Do not memorize the letter of the answer, as they change the order randomly.

    Ohms Law Formula:

    E=IxR
    Volts=Amps x Ohms
    Amps=Volts / Ohms
    Ohms=Volts/Amps


    Wavelength to frequency
    Mhz=300/meters
    Meters=300/Mhz
