AMATEUR RADIO TRAINING AND LICENSING INFORMATION
CRARS from time to time runs courses for the Basic Certificate.
Please contact Frank Wallace at 250-285-2297 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org for
general information on obtaining an Amateur Radio Certificate and
Qualified Amateur Radio operators have widespread privileges in the
use of the radio spectrum, so the material to be studied is quite
technical and cover the regulations (25%), basic electrical and
electronic theory and components, theory and layout of transmitter
& receivers, radio wave propagation, antenna types, safety
precautions and operating procedures.
The Basic exam is a 100 question multiple choice, pass
mark is 70% for VHF privileges but 80% (Basic+) permits use of
all the amateur bands.
A basic training workbook, Hamwork 2, is available in PDF format and can be downloaded to view HERE . There are two separate cover sheets with front cover HERE and back cover HERE . The cover sheets are intended to slip into the front and back outside transparent pockets of a three-ring binder.
Hamwork 2 can be used as a stand-alone study guide but
is designed to be used with the free Windows computer program ExHaminer
which sets test questions and practice exams. It can be run on a Mac
with the additional program, Winebottler. It should be run from a
hard drive or flash drive so it records your progress.
It is a reliable guide to tell you when you are ready for the
real exam which must be set by a qualified examiner. Another useful
program is Hampuzzle on the ExHaminer download page.
