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.

Ham Radio plays important role in bringing aid to an injured hiker

Published by under Uncategorized

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.
