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.
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.

I have added in the new Technician question pool that is valid from July 2014 – June 30th 2018. My apologies for not getting this online earlier! There are 35 questions in the exam as before, there are only three required figures in this edition of the exam, T1-T3 which are the same as they were in the previous pool. They have removed figures T4-T7 from this version of the exam, these were the block diagrams of transceiver components.
Please let me know if everything works OK, its possible that a few typos or formatting errors may have crept in when I converted it from the original file from the ARRL NCVEC site.
I came across this article today in our local paper, the Daily Camera, describing how Bill Eberle (AB0MY) put his handheld and the Colorado Connection Repeater system to good use coordinating emergency assistance to an injured hiker.

A great example of using Ham Radio when cell phones and our standard communication tools don’t work and kudos to the Colorado Connection Repeater team for creating such great coverage in our state’s mountainous regions.
