Publisher's Summary

Memorizing 400+ random answers is hard. Learning is easy! The Fast Track to Your Technician Ham Radio License explains the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer on the amateur radio exam, so you'll understand and remember the subject matter. Created by an experienced ham and adult educator, it's like having your own, patient, experienced, good-humored mentor for the exam.

Technician is the entry-level ham radio license that lets you operate on all ham channels from 30 MHz up, which includes the very popular VHF and UHF bands. To get your license, you must pass a multiple-choice test.

The technician license test consists of 35 questions drawn from a pool of about 400. Memorizing the answers to 400 questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes getting your license easy by explaining the logic behind each correct answer, and by arranging the questions, so they form a logical progression toward mastery of the material.

It's simple: When you understand the subjects, you remember the answers and pass the test.

Best of all, once you've passed your exam you'll have a solid grounding in ham radio basics.

  • Includes every possible question and every answer 
  • Correct answers clearly marked in bold 
  • Precise instructions for how to locate a testing session, how to prepare, and even what to bring - and what not to bring - to the test.
  • All technical topics explained in clear, plain language
  • Step-by-step instructions to solve all the math problems, complete with exactly which keys to press on your calculator for each problem 
  • Test-taking strategies 
  • Hints to easily solve many questions and avoid the traps in the test

Wonderful combining audiobook and paperback

I passed my Technician exam after a week and a few days of cramming this stuff into my head both with the audiobook and the paper back. I think this is a winning combination. I wouldn't have ever guessed I'd want to keep going but... I enjoyed the process so much I'm moving on to his General licence study guide and audiobook! this is a seriously great example of how test prep should be produced! Thank you Mr Burnette you make it fun

Excellent tutorial

Everything you need to not only pass the Technician exam but understand the material. Michael's presentation is clear, concise and entertaining. I've listened to it twice now while doing work around the house and yard and I'm consistently passing the test exams with high marks. I got a lot from this and I'm sure you will too. On to the General study guide...

Study for Technician Class Ham Radio by Audio Book

Other than the math sections, for which I will likely also need to purchase the book, this is a great way to study for Ham Radio. Since the math sections don't map too well to the audio format one suggestion to the author would be to include the math visuals on his web site or add an associated video to his youTube channel.
