So, you want to become a Ham Radio Operator. This page will be a work in progress.
I will add content as I discover new sources to assist you in your quest to obtain your
Amateur Operator License.
In order to qualify for an amateur radio license, you must pass certain tests to determinethat you have the required knowledge. Fortunately, the tests are not terribly difficult for
most people. There are three license levels (known as classes) where each class grants
greater privleges to the individual. There is a single written test for each license class.
The license classes are:
frequencies above 50 Mhz and is the most popular. It requires only a written test.
frequencies below 50 Mhz and includes global HF (shortwave) communications. It has its own written test.
It has its own written test and requires that you also have passed all of the Technician and General class written tests.
Good Luck & 73 from Chuck, W4CLL
