I have some nice Icom receivers(R7100, R1, R20) and have always wanted to get my Ham License...no need for morse code anymore, right?
CORRECT!.....but CW (morse code) is a good skill to learn, kinda like primitive fire making....;)
Anyways, I got my General after 11 hours of study over 5-6 days from Ham Radio License Exam Online.
I scored 95 percent today when I upgraded from technician to general, so I actually OVERSTUDIED by 20 percent! With the ease and simplicity of the online study format, I'm going to go ahead and pay for the Amateur Extra and take that in a couple of weeks, even though, as of yesterday I had no desire.
