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.
Boulder County hiker thankful for rescuers and ham radio operators: ‘I was lucky’
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.
I have just put the upcoming General exam pool online, this should be used if you plan to take your General exam on or after July 1st 2011. If you are taking your exam before July 1st 2011, continue to use the existing General question pool.
There is more information about the new General question pool at the NCVEC website.
A number of people had pointed out that figure T7 was missing in the Technician exams following the change over to the new pool. This was entirely due to me forgetting to upload it along with the other figures! I uploaded the missing image file this morning so hopefully all should be well. Thanks to Douglas and Gerard for pointing out the bug.
