LEVEL 1: Technician Class License

TECHNICIAN EXAM REQUIREMENT: 35-question Technician Written Exam (multiple choice) No Morse Code Exam
PRIVILEGES: All VHF/UHF amateur bands (frequencies above 30 MHz), and limited operations in certain HF bands.

Your instructors will teach from The ARRL Technician Q&A License Manual tech book - level 1
The most popular license for beginners is the Technician Class license, which requires only 26 correct answers out of a 35 question multiple-choice examination.
The test is written with the beginner in mind.

The exam covers basic regulations, operating practices, and electronics theory, with a focus on VHF and UHF applications. Morse Code is not required for this license.

With a Technician Class license, you will have all ham radio privileges above 30 megahertz (MHz). These privileges include the very popular 2-meter band.

Many Technician licensees enjoy using small (2-meter) hand-held radios to stay in touch with other hams in their area. Technicians may operate FM voice, digital packet (computers), television, single-sideband voice and several other interesting modes. You can even make international radio contacts via satellites, using relatively simple station equipment. Technician licensees now also have additional privileges on certain HF frequencies. Technicians may also operate on the 80, 40, and 15 meter bands using CW, and on the 10 meter band using CW, voice, and digital modes.

Additional Requirements
The cost of the ARRL VEC exam session is *$15.00
