Technician Class License Study Guide for Amateur Radio by KB6NU – Free PDF #hamr #radio

hamr license study guide

Can I really learn how to be an amateur radio operator from a study guide like this?
Yes and no. This manual will help you get your license, but getting your license is only the beginning. There is still much to learn, and to get the most out of amateur radio, you will have to continually learn new things. This study guide will teach you the answers to the test questions, but will not give you a deep understanding of electronics, radio, or the rules and regulations. That will be up to you after you get your license.
I hope that by helping you get your license that you’ll be encouraged to become an active radio amateur and get on the air, participate in public service and emergency communications, join an amateur radio club, and experiment with radios, antennas, and circuits. These are the activities that will really help you learn about radio in depth, and in the end, help you be confident in your abilities as an amateur radio operator.

Dan Romanchik KB6NU has a number of amateur radio study guides online and this one is a free PDF available here.

  1. Getting your ham license is only the beginning. I interview “old timers” about their entrance into ham radio and how it changed their life for the better. Dan Romanchik was one of my guests on the QSO Today Podcast at http://www.qsotoday.com.

    People like a good story. Ham radio stories are a great stories for those interested in radio and electronics.
