Welcome!

This site allows you to take practice tests in preparation for the United States Amateur Radio (Ham radio) and Commercial Radio licensing exams. The questions and answers used in these practice exams are the official questions provided by the FCC and are organized to mimic the actual written tests as closely as possible.

Morse Code

Although the Morse Code requirement no longer exists for any of the amateur exams, we do have a Morse Code generator that can be quite handy for learning and practice. I have also started a 5wpm morse code podcast with daily headlines on a variety of topics.

Need help testing upcoming version of Ham Morse

Published by under Uncategorized

As you can see from the screenshots below I’m working on a new look for the Ham Morse app – more in line with iOS7+ design standards. The main goal is to provide more room for the relevant parts of the interface – the text, the most often used controls, etc. and to simplify the interface at the same time. For example the Tone slider has been moved to the settings page as it is not frequently used and that helps save space for the other controls.

I’m looking for some help to test the new version of the app on iPhones, iPads, etc. Apple bought and revamped the TestFlight testing tools that I used to use but if you are interested in helping test the app and are running iOS8 you can still register here: http://bit.ly/m66o8g and then I can add you to the new TestFlight environment to give the app a try. Note that while the app itself works on iOS6+, the test environment only works for folks running iOS8+ on their devices so unfortunately if your device is running an earlier version of iOS then you can’t help with the testing at this point.

As always, any thoughts or comments most welcome!

Simon, AA9PW.
