Tech License Intro and Lesson 1


This is the first video in a series of probably about 35 preparing for the Technician Class exam.  I had to push the time to get the video within YouTube parameters so if there are any questions, please leave them in a post and I'll get right to them.  This was also my first adventure into a video podcast so please, bare with me.

  2. At the moment...no. However, in a month or so maybe. I am currently in the middle of Afghanistan and bandwidth is a bit of an obstacle. I did do these videos with download in mind and the raw files are in an iPod friendly format to make them mobile.

  8. @blindman11 Just call ahead to the test session and the VEs will make accommodations for you. As far as your other question, I do not sell (nor do I have) an audio version of the course. I know web browsers like Firefox have add-ons which allow you to download the video to your computer which will allow you to listen to it. If (by chance) you have one of the newer Kindles, they have a text to speech function which will allow you to listen to the kindle book. With all the equations, I can't imagine that would be a good option. I think your best bet would be to download the videos.
