One other source for taking Amateur radio on line test.    This site tracks your performance and will auto adjust your test question based on what you have missed.     It’s worth the few dollars it cost.  
Take a look, You May like how this program follows your test results.    Corey

Cody,

Thanks for the good questions and suggestions, and responses from others.

Setting aside the real problem of getting permission from Columbia Public Schools to video a whole course, I hesitate to video our Technician class because it is very interactive with members of the class, as contrasted to a scripted and efficient video production, like some ham radio instruction courses on YouTube.  In our advice sheet for the first class, we recommend the best of the practice tests and one or two of the instructional series videos.  We also use selected short YouTube videos in class, using the classroom PC to Projector setup.

Each class is topically structured (currently in line with Gordon West's Technician class study manual readings).   But. we have  a lot of interaction with class members.  We encourage interrupting questions and work as much as possible in an Elmer/mentor style.  Every class is different, depending on who is in it.

Thanks, Corey!

Additional resource that I've used in the past:

But I have to say that hamstudy.org was probably the most helpful for me in getting from wannabe to general in just a few months.

Ham Radio Repeters around Missouri

Cody
 


So I was looking at radio repeater book online, an then w0keh out of KC sent me the head radio page for Missouri. I sent a message to the person who runs the Missouri side because he had done a wonderful job on Missouri reperers, locations an the whole 9 yards, except let you know on the other pages it was this or that kind of repeater. What i mean is their no indication that it was a SKYWARN repeater. So for people like me that travel all over Missouri. Mostly to KC and STL, it be nice to try to hit other repeters where you might be going throught. But it be nice if they indicate the club repeters or if it is a SKYWARN repeater. Because then you know how to better use it. I try not to use SKYWARN unless I have to. Rather use a normal club repeater. But kind of cool seeing what's all just in Missouri or over the border states of Missouri for contacts. Just my thoughts as I learn more an see the locations of different repeaters as I may travel an find one day to use them.

This could have some interesting effects on radio propagation this weekend.

It had an interesting effect on the MO Traffic net on 3.963. Almost no reception in-state but excellent reception on KY and AR stations at my QTH.

Yes thanks Chris. I figured it would have an affect, I saw the article and wanted to share it with the group.

Question

paul watt
 

Has anyone used one of these before?  It looks like a nice universal tool that could serve many tasks as part of a go kit.  Not really sure HbrFr is the best place to buy one but seeing it got me to thinking as a "nice to have" for the go bag.  Any thoughts?  
Thanks,
Paul KE0IKG

Re: Question

kc0pah
 

I have had three similar units (also lead acid not Ni-CAD or Lithium-Ion) They work well when charged initially but do not hold a charge nearly as well or as long as one would like. 
I have heard the more expensive Lithium-Ion packs hold a charge better and last longer, but cost double that or more.
I even put a 12v feed to a lead acid jump kit I had in the back of the Range Rover and that one died after less than a year and a half.
YMMV

Re: Question

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

I had a similar product (not this brand/model) and it charged once, then died dead after sitting 6 months and never would hold a charge after that.  I believe it was also from horrible freight.

Enough is enough. There is no need to be living a life that you hate anymore. Nobody is going to get you the life that you want, it is up to you to work for it and achieve it. It is time to start living the life that you see every time you close your eyes. – Henry James
