I signed up for an amateur radio operator technician class at the end of this month. After speaking with the instructor and receiving several study guides, I began the daunting task of learning the material. At first I was completely lost; however, after several days I seems to have picked a majority of the materal up. After a week of studying I was passing the practice exams with a 90+ percentile. Yesterday morning I saw there was an exam session and I decided to see how I would do. Typically being a bad test taker, I had low expectations and just wanted an idea of what the exam would be like… I sat down for the exam and finished it very quickly, I would guess in about 5 minutes. I turned in the exam and they told me it would be a few minutes while they grade the exam. After they graded the exam they informed me that I not only passed, I aced the exam scoring 100%!
Below is a copy of my NVEC cert!
I am now studying for the general exam and this seems to be far more daunting, but hopefully I can pass this exam too.
On a side not I still hope to be able to attend the class at the end of the month! While i did easily pass the exam I have a few questions and have always been a firm believer in the fact that the more knowledge you have the better off you are!
My last comment in this post is this… I have been researching the “perfect” antenna for my house that can cover more or less all bands! That antenna does not seem to exist and all the options make my head hurt! If anyone has any suggestions let me know!
