My Amateur Radio Test Taking Experience (Technician Class).... Doug Reeves
Guess who has an amateur radio license, Technician class, as of 3:30 PM Sunday, September 25th? Yup!
If you're of the opinion that this is a hard test requiring weeks to prepare for, please let me help alleviate those fears by telling you my experience. Click on and print out the Technician Study Guide - 14 pages). Find a location and date for taking the test. Study the Technician Study Guide for two hours the morning of the test, glance at this chart a couple of times, then take the Practice Test. You'll pass it. Arrive an hour early at the testing location and study for one more hour in your car before going in. Drink a Dr. Pepper. Pay the $15* to take the test and score a 91. Go to Jason's Deli afterwards and get a salad because you feel guilty about that Dr. Pepper.
