Where's that mock test?
 
My Jedi search skills are weak tonight.

I remember a mock test that you could take but can't find the link now.

Can you help a brother out?

i second the qrz tests. trying to find the time to start studying for my general. as much as i hate to admit, i need some work trips and airplane time.

I've really thought about the General. But, it would be just to say I have it. I rarely talk on the HAM unless we're on a club run. I don't have a home station or anything like that.

My usual uses are:
Club Runs
The weather 162.550
And I usually pull up the air traffic frequencies on my way to work. It tells me which way we're landing/converging, how busy it is, what the winds are doing.

The talk on the Net or the repeaters is usually too technical for me and I lose interest. I need a HAM for dummies repeater. All everyone talks about is antennas, wires and fuses.

Maybe it's time we get serious about a tires, suspension, and camping repeater.. :bolt:

Ha! That's not really what I was after. However I did get in on a morning weather check-in while I was on my way fishing once.

It was people checking in from all over with weather reports. Pretty interesting. Bunch of guys with home weather and HAM stations. I'm a Certified Weather Observer and fully LAWRS certified, so I pulled over and gave a mobile report. One of the few times in my ATC career that I actually found some use for the 2 hardest tests I've ever taken. Weather is fun to watch and report in the field, until you have to record, encode and disseminate it via ASOS. Then it becomes a mind numbing snoozefest.

I guess what I need is a better understanding of HAM radios and everything that goes with it. The Tech test doesnt prepare you for real world knowledge about most radio conversations. But, it's very possible that I'm just a dummy and it's all over my head anyway.

Stan, I feel the same as you. So at least you're not alone ;)
