Hey, if they'll give me a license, you should have no problem earning yours :lol:

BoBoNel:

Welcome. You are on the list.

Yes, you can be prepared in three weeks. No need to worry about a limited number of spaces for testing. We will serve anyone that wants to test. Good luck!!

Chris - there are several on-line practice test sites, and an on-line study course. If you don't like to study, you might find a local ham club offering classes, too -

www.eham.com
www.qrz.com
www.arrl.org
www.hamtestonline.com

Ham radio is for everyone - the test is not designed to stump you, but rather to make sure everyone understands the structure, function, and regulations. You can do it, but you've got to put the effort in to try....see you at Borregofest, an I hope to be able to sign off on your technician's license.

My parents are going to visit on Sunday (only time our schedules coincide :lol: ), and may take the test (new license - technician).
