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...
