Don't Just Memorize Answers...Pass The Ham Radio Tests By Learning

 So many people just want to memorize the answers for the Ham Radio Tests. I say take the time to learn what Ham Radio is all about. Then you can decide on a path or many paths in the Ham radio Hobby and pass it on to others. It's kind of embarrassing when a young child knows the correct answers and the reasons why. Who knows maybe you can become a teacher and help others to learn about Ham Radio. Always remember there are three licenses and they have to be taken in a certain order.
  1. Technician
  2. General
  3. Extra
