Intro to HAM radio class

I wanted to create a thread for everyone to ask questions as well as having a place to explain the details of this class.

The aim is to give attending members the information and tools needed to begin their studies for a HAM radio license. THIS IS NOT A LICENSING CLASS, you will not be licensed to use a HAM radio at the end of this class! You will leave this class with a decent understanding of HAM radio and the tools needed to begin studying for the test.

The actual test is composed of 35 questions for the technician class which is all that is needed to get on the air! You can choose to go for the General, Amateur extra, etc. It is not hard if you study and put a little time in, 10 year old kids do it!

We will be meeting at the Steelcrest headquarters located at:
4141 E Raymond St # E
Phoenix, AZ 85040.
Thanks to Doug Lawyer for making the space available to us!

That being said, due to the conference room size we are limited to 14 members who can attend the class comfortably so please be sure to sign up on the events page. If you cannot get a spot to attend the class we will be broadcasting the class live on Facebook as we did with the meeting.

We will have equipment available for you to get familiar with as well as have a live demo at the end of the class of some of the features and uses we will cover.

Please post any questions you have and I will do my best to answer!

This post is old I know but what site do you recommend to study? The one I went to offered 3 different sets of study questions, and I guess the technician one (?) which seems dumb as we will only be operators, but you say that's the set we need to study? A recommended site would be helpful if you know one, especially since you already did it. I am also curious about the different licenses as I am already FCC licensed as a pilot and they do not expire....
