Lesson 1: General Class Exam Course G1A

Hello again!  After a bit of a break, I am tackling the General Class license course!  The questions in these lessons are only good until the end of June 2011 so don't delay in getting your upgrade!

This lesson covers the G1A group of questions which primarily deal with frequency allocations.  There is a lot of memorization for this group.  I've broken down what you need to know here:

The band frequencies you need to memorize are:
75/80m     3.525 - 3.6 MHz and 3.8 - 4.0 MHz
40m          7.025 - 7.125 MHz and 7.175 - 7.3 MHz
20m          14.025 - 14.150 MHz and 14.225 - 14.350 MHz
15m          21.025 - 21.2 MHz and 21.225 - 21.450 MHz
12m          24.890 - 24.99 MHz
10m          28-29.7 MHz

On 30m you can only use RTTY, data, and CW.  Image transmission is not allowed!

On 60m is USB voice only!  You can not even use CW on 60m!

It is also important to not that General Class operators can use the entire Amateur privilege on 160m, 30m, 17m, 12m, and 10m.  They do not have the whole amateur privilege on 15m!  Don't get tripped up by this question on the exam!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave them in the comment box.  Until lesson 2...

73,
Andy

  1. Andy, Thank you for doing these videos. They make a great addition to reading the book and testing software to prepare for the licensing tests.

    I just wanted to let you know that they are appreciated.

  3. Thanks Andy. Passed the Tech. exam thanks to your Exam Class. I'd like to print a simple band chart, with ITU MF, HF, VHF, UHF. Band name IN METERS. Band freq. lower end and upper end. I don't know enough about computers to find and print my own. It would be a good study aide to your training to have printable charts of each set of charts for each area separate; one chart of Tech test, one for General, and one for the Extra, without color. I saw the chart I'm thinking of at Wika, Amateur radio frequency allocations. Thanks again.

  4. I looked around and couldn't find a chart with all that information specifically for Technician Class privileges. I agree that it would be a great tool to have. I'll take a crack at it. Thanks and congrats on passing the exam! Let me know your call when it posts! 73! Andy

  8. Hello Andy! First of all, thank you so much for providing this amazing resource! I've been holding a German license since 1996 and I decided to obtain an American license now. So technically I have dealt with most of the material already, except for all the US-specific regulations. And that's why your page seems to be the very best source of information because I just need to know about the differences and question structures. So, regarding your general class exam course, how much did the questions change in 2011? I have signed up for an exam in the beginning of August and I am wondering if I can (still) use your videos for preparation? Again, thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it! 73 from Germany! Wolfgang, DL6BW

    1. Update: I used The Ham Whisperer to study for element 2 & 3 (it took me two days to get ready for the Tech and three days to finish my General preparations) and despite the General part isn't up-to-date anymore I passed the two elements without any problems. I guess the difference between the "old" and new General exam isn't too big and I can only encourage anyone to watch these great videos. 73! Wolfgang

  9. Question #4 is a bit different "Which of the following amateur bands is restricted to communication on only specific channels, rather than frequency range?", but has the same answer - 60 meters.

    There are only 15 questions now.

    Thanks for doing these videos!

  14. In your first video, The G1A Questions, #G1A06 has a different question attached to it. The question that appears on the NCVEC Homepage is:

    G1A06 (C) [97.301(d)]
    Which of the following frequencies is within the General Class portion of the 75-meter phone band?
    A. 1875 kHz
    B. 3750 kHz
    C. 3900 kHz
    D. 4005 kHz

    The correct answer is "C" / 3900 khz

  18. Hello Andy, 1st thank you for taking the time to make these videos.
    Are these video good for exams given throughout 2018?
    I am returning to amateur radio after working through a traumatic brain injury.
    My goal is to pass both my general and extra class by 10-2018
    Since my ability to focus, and concentrate is somewhat limited, I would rather not waste time studying old material.
    Thank you,

  26. The counter contention to this is it isn't swindling in view of the live mimicked commonsense parts of the official tests which demonstrate the applicants know the Microsoft Technology Associate dumps. Other counter contentions are that the official tests are composed explicitly to "trap" applicants with incredible circumstances and situations.

    Como cuidar de teu cabelo encaracolado com produtos naturais

    Uma pergunta popular que recebemos de nossos consumidores é - como cuidar de cabelos cacheados? Como torná-los mais definidos enquanto controlo o volume? Como já sabes, se tu tens cabelos cacheados, ativadores de caracóis estão entre os produtos mais populares (e essenciais) que tu precisas ter, a fim de manter os teus caracóis e o teu volume. As perguntas são: quais são os produtos certos para mim? e onde comprá-los?

    Cuidar de cabelos encaracolados começa com a compreensão da estrutura. Um dos primeiros passos para encontrar o tratamento de cabelo encaracolado perfeito para ti é descobrir que tipo de cabelo encaracolado você tem. Neste artigo da Evan Care faremos um bom trabalho em acentuar as principais diferenças entre cabelos lisos e cabelos encaracolados.

    Ao contrário do cabelo liso, o cabelo encaracolado tem uma forma transversal elíptica. Se tu pegares os dois tipos de cabelo e cortá-los em toda a largura, tu irás perceber que o cabelo encaracolado tem uma forma oval, e que o cabelo liso tem uma forma circular quase perfeita. É esta diferença na estrutura que lhe dá o seu efeito de mola e é a razão de o cabelo encaracolado ter diferentes tipos de caracóis (2A, 3A, 4A, etc...). Quanto mais a forma elíptica é acentuada, mais o cabelo será encaracolado (4A, 4B, 4C...)

    Um ativador de caracóis com agentes naturais ajuda a remodelar a estrutura do cabelo, a torná-lo mais definido e com controle de volume. O produto age para que os fios de cabelo adiram uns aos outros e dá ao cabelo afro, por exemplo, mais definição, o que por sua vez resulta em menos frizz. Ele também garante brilho, o que ajuda a dar uma aparência mais saudável para todo o cabelo.

    Como podemos perceber, para cabelos encaracolados ressecados a hidratação é a prioridade número um, seja nos cabelos longos ou curtos. Mas isso não é tudo, cabelos encaracolados também precisam de nutrientes para fazer as pontes dissulfeto e para mantê-las. Portanto, escolher o produto certo tem que ser uma decisão assertiva. Em geral, as melhores formulações são as que contêm diferentes óleos, como murumuru, azeites de oliva e coco. Eles formam um complexo muito rico que fornece ao cabelo hidratação de longa duração, que por sua vez significa que tu não tens que finalizar teus caracóis todos os dias; Tudo em nome de mais praticidade.
