This course has two objectives:
- The student will be able to pass the FCC General License Exam (Element 3), qualifying for the second level FCC Amateur Radio License.
- The student will have sufficient knowledge to operate an amateur radio station on the General Class frequency allocations above 1.8 MHz, with a particular focus on HF single sideband operations.
This is a highly-compressed course that depends on the focus and motivation of the student. Reading assignments must be done in advance of the classroom sessions. The classroom sessions are fast-paced, covering a wide variety of material in a short time. The student is expected to cover Chapters Ø – 2 independently – only Q&A and review discussion in class for these.* The use of practice exams is very important for evaluating topic areas that need attention.
