About this site

Welcome to the AA9PW amateur exam practice website. It is built and maintained by me, Simon Twigger, aka AA9PW. This site has been through a variety of incarnations since I first put it on line in 1996. I used it as a way to teach myself Perl programming and web development while I was doing a postdoc fellowship in Biochemistry. The site was originally hosted courtesy of the Medical College of Wisconsin Biochemistry department until I registered AA9PW.com around 1999.

The site hadn’t changed much since then until mid 2008 when I decided it really was high time it was somewhat updated and moved to a more modern look! Currently Im using the wordpress blogging platform to handle the static pages and the exams and morse code are still being created by the original perl scripts from 1996 (hey – if it isn’t broken…)

Ultimately I’d like to replace the exam scripts and make them more flexible but for now its nice to have the web pages updated at last. If you have any questions or comments about the site, please feel free to comment on the blog or drop me an email directly at exams at aa9pw.com
