Studying for Extra Class

I Have a Test Date

Posted in: Ham Radio, Testing | Comments (0)

I have finally scheduled my test for Extra Class. 29 April is the day. I have been taking tons of practice tests and studying away. Lately my scores have all been in the upper 80′s and lower 90′s so I feel like I am ready.

I will let you now how it goes.

Welcome to the new KB5WCK.com site.  I am in the middle of re-publishing my site so some pages may be a little while getting back up.

Please be patient as I re-do the site.

Studying for Extra Class

Posted in: Ham Radio, Testing | Comments (0)

I have begun studying for Extra class exam. This is some seriously tough stuff to learn but I think I am about ready. I have been taking tests from QRZ.com and aa9pw.com. I have been using the AD7FO Extra Class study guide along with the No-Nonsense Extra Class guide by KB6NU.

These are both great guides. They tackle the exam different ways but are both effective. The AD7FO guide is strictly a question and correct answer guide with some discussion put in to help you understand the subjects. The No-Nonsense guide is more of a disussion based guide that tackles all the questions in a discussion type format.

If you have any suggestions or material that you think will help, please let me know.

Below are my grades so far, I think I am getting close:
