    The license exams for all current Amateur Radio licenses: Technician, General and Extra, are all of the same style. Each is four-answer multiple choice. Technician and General have 35 questions; Extra 50.

    A passing score for the Technician and General exams is 26 correct (74%). You may miss 9. For the Extra exam it is 37 correct (74%). You may miss 13. Questions are chosen randomly by a computer with a specified number taken from each of the ten groups on the pool. You will find that number at the beginning of the sections.

    Gotcha. I didn't look at the model number posted earlier. I assumed it was the same baofeng that's been around the block on the internet.

    Been going through the flash cards. None of it is real difficult. Just have to get exposed to the information.

    I still find it weird that they still had it listed if they had returned all the radios. Just sucks because I can't use the coupon code more than once. May just look for another one or buy one off Amazon and eat the extra cost.

    Think you just need technician to start. You can take the next tests for free while you're there for the technician though if your prepared .

    Is it worth taking anything more than the technician for what we’ll be doing?

    I believe we will all just be taking the Technician class so we can get started. Unless you want to prepare for the general and take it too while you're there. I'm sure with what the Extra will allow you to do it will just cost you more money in the end buying the gear to use what you have a license for with it. Haha

    Phillip, check your email to make sure your radio buy went through. I'm in the process of a refund with mine.

    I believe above the Technician you can use the radio to communicate through satellites also. That may be the Extra though. I think we will pretty much be limited to 2m radio with Technician.

    Ah. Well I’m only really concerned with using this radio for wheeling purposes so I should be alright.

    Hell, I haven't touched a CB since I was around 5. My grandfather was big into CB's. They called him "the chauffeur" which was funny b/c he had been blind since my dad was 2 :rofl:

    Cool! Glad you got yours.

    I may get a different radio that needs a different antenna so I may have a antenna available for you or one of the other guys if you want it.

    @baldridge @medic2230 @Toyotacrawler @coke can @Jerneyman
    Here's an Android app that was suggested to me from another member @m603holden from the Graveyard thread.

    Android
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.delasystems.hamradioexamtech

    Apple
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ham-radio-exam-tech/id601991935?mt=8


    He also gave this advice

    The key with this app is to just take the practice quiz by section. It highlights the right answer. Do it 3-4 times until the answers become familiar. Then move on.

    There's 35 sections with sub parts. They're grouped by type of info. Some is general info. Some is tech stuff .Some is math stuff. But they can only take one question from a section. So if you suck at math, guess what, there's only a couple questions you might see on the test math related.

    I believe it's a 35 question test and you can get 7 wrong.
