    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.
