Lesson 7: General Class Exam Course G2B

Here is lesson 7 in the General Class exam series covering the G2B questions.  This lesson can basically be summed up as a lesson in Amateur Radio courtesy.  The use of band plans is gone over in detail.  For those not familiar with using a band plan, it is essentially a voluntary agreement between Amateurs to use certain segments of the radio spectrum for certain purposes.  For instance, PSK use on specific frequencies, calling frequencies, low power frequencies, etc. are part of a band plan. 

The questions are fairly straight forward, but there are a few that you will need to memorize.  These questions deal with how far away (frequency-wise) you need to be from another station transmitting in various modes to avoid causing interference. 

CW                            150-500Hz
SSB approx.               3 kHz
170 Hz shift RTTY      250-500 Hz

That's it.  If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions please leave them in the comment box.

  1. This one is confusing because they added emergencies to this section, to include drills and emergency communications, so many of the questions in the previous pool have been scrapped and new ones pertaining to emergency communications have been added.

    #2 on video is gone, #6 & 7 on video are gone, #9-12 on video are gone and are replaced with new questions. Question #13 on video corresponds to question #6 in new pool.

    Basically, for this section refer to the new question pool!
