  5. Andy,

    Can't thank you enough for creating and sharing the Technician Class video lessons on YouTube. Just passed the test today after watching your videos last night and this morning (total study time approx. 7 hours).

    Aside from a brief (15 minute) glance at Dan's "The No-Nonsense, Technician Class License Study Guide" just before the test, your videos are the only study material I used; they made learning and retaining the information *much* easier than simply reading textbooks.

    Though I've already passed (thanks to you), I'm going to buy a copy of "The Ham Whisperer's Technician Class License Course" in gratitude. I encourage other readers who've benefited from your videos to do the same.

    Yours Gratefully,

    Miles

    I'm glad the videos helped. It's amazing how much the exams have changed. I remember by Novice exam very well. It seemed the questions were very much like the General exam questions, minus some of the electronics pieces. The big deal was to take the Technician exam as soon as possible so you could get VHF privileges. Now it is just the opposite. Congrats on hitting the double! 73! -Andy

    I want to thank you so very much for helping me pass my Tech exam. It took me 5 days to get thru all the Tech videos and on April 5th, 2011 I took my Tech exam....100% and completed the test in about 15 mins. The next day I received my call sign, KK4BJW, and have loved talking and meeting people from all around the US and world. Thanks again and I hope to one day make contact with you on the radio and thank you in person. -Robby

    Your online classes made the learning process so much easier. I passed my Technician's License without any anxiety. The format is perfect for adult learners.

    Now I will be looking to get my General license with your help.

  18. You are a wonderful teacher - thank you! I just passed my Technician exam (don't even have a callsign yet) and I couldn't have done it without your study course. Question for you though: I want to upgrade to General in July (I know - right AFTER the question pool changes.) I don't suppose you'll have an updated video series soon... will you?

  19. Andy,Andy, Andy after going through your test material I took my Tech and pasted April 1, 2011, and I took my General today May 14, 2011, and pasted. Years ago I tried by just studying the book, and went to hamster classes not very well put together, "for get about it". Thank you for your insurmountable help.

    Are you going to do the Extra?

    Your gonna get tired of saying thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congrats Mike! Thanks for the comment. Yes, I am planning to do an Extra course, but that will probably not be until next year when the questions change. A lessoned I learned after the General Class Course. Congrats and thanks again! 73!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'll be look'n for the extra class course and I'll be sure and point people your way. I've talked with what seems like an experienced guy,GUERRILLAGEEK on youtube. He seems to think that the general stuff is beyond his needs, radio stuff being to expensive as well. And he's fine with the Tech lic. What's the reason for taking the other tests. GG seems to have a point. By the way anyone with or getting a vx7 go to GG he's put up some vids on how to use it, there & on his channel.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mike,
    Way back in the day, there were five license classes: Novice, Technician, General, Advanced, and Extra. The Novice Class consisted primarily of HF CW privileges. VHF privileges were in the realm of the Technician Class license. To use voice on HF, you needed a General Class license. The incentive to progress in the license classes was a lot clearer then. If a Ham is happy with just using the VHF and UHF privileges with a Technician Class license, they aren't going to get more by upgrading. However, if a Ham wants to explore DX and to fully interact in activities like Emergency Service, contesting, and QRP operation, a General Class license is a must. The Extra Class license gives a Ham more room to operate on the HF frequencies. As far as expense goes, the nice thing about HF is the equipment is relatively simple and can even be made at home. I bought a 40m CW kit for $25. Also, used equipment can be very cheap. When my parents retired, they sold my entire mint condition Heath Kit station for $35. I'm still upset about that. I've been looking for a VX7 for a while now. I'll have to check out GG's channel. Thanks!

  23. Hey Andy, I have directed about 20 people to you from GA. I studied and actually got fully prepared for my Tech. and General Test while I was driving down the road. Have you heard that one yet lol.

    I downloaded all videos to my phone and hooked my phone up to my aux in my cd player and listened/watched in between stops and did practice test while driving by a piece of paper on the arm rest and pasted both test this way lol.

    I think that was more of the catch for everyone else wanting to check you out. "If that got passed his via preparation while driving down the road then I know I can pass it with hamwhisperers course."

    My question which I have been wanting to know is are you an EXTRA Class Operator and if you are do you know if you are going to do a course for that to?

    I am going to keep the flow going and study for that driving down the road to if so.

    Thanks! KJ4ZDB !!!Thanks to ANDY !!!

  26. I am so grateful for your videos. I have my first licensing exam in a few days, and I am sure I am going to pass at least my technician level exam. I haven't yet studied the general, but I'll run through your videos and see how much my brain can hold of it. LOL I have had no experience with electrical theory before, and you've done a pretty good job with explaining things in a way most people can relate to.

  44. There is a commonly held error on page 143. A "short" or "short circuit" is NOT a broken connection, but rather occurs when a hot wire comes in accidental contact with a neutral or ground wire. Check any good dictionary or electrician's manual.
    Also, "vice versa" is spelled wrong on page 65. I am in the process of thoroughly proofreading the Tech book, and will send it to you when I finish.

    I have been looking over a variety of comments regarding an update to the General Class exam.
    We all look forward to the next revision. I know the government is fond of re-arrangining the same questions in an exam, then issuing a new revision number. Is this the case with your current Element 3 General Course?

  48. Andy, do you have any thoughts on creating an iTunes podcast of the Technician Class License Course. Although this sight and YouTube are great resources It could be beneficial to have an alternative means to sync an entire class for study during our commutes. I've noticed that the show; HAM RADIO PODCAST (on iTunes) is out of date and offering their Podcast name up to an interested party.

    Thanks for posting these videos - I learned a lot, and passed my Tech exam yesterday. These are the only vids I've seen anywhere which are organized, succinct, and yet are so much more than just memorizing the answers - you actually explain the why's (yet, without being overwhelmingly detailed to the point where it becomes a blur). So thanks again, couldn't have done it without you.

  73. Hello Mr. Andy. I have wrote three times with no reply but I won't give up. I'm sure you are very busy.

    I have lead 8 people to your videos and even began burning your videos on DVD for people to make it easier for them.

    I AM STILL WAITING SO PATIENTLY FOR THE EXTRA CLASS COURSE. LIKE I SAID ANDY, I WILL BE WILLING TO PAY YOU TO BEGIN ON IT.

    I BET YOU ALSO IF I JUST SIMPLY LISTED IT THAT WE ALL COULD TAKE UP A DONATION FOR YOU TO BEGIN ON IT AND IT COULD HELP YOU OUT FOR YOUR TIME.

    Every time I wait a month or so and come look at your site I hope and pray you have started. OMG my friend I can't wait. I actually enjoyed studying your stuff as in entrainment in a way.

    I know Gordon West has his out already but honestly I want yours. I could have bought Gordon Wests a month or so ago but I would rather wait on you my friend. You are very "GIFTED" at what you do and we all are very thankful.

    Please email me at threemanpro at gmail and you know the rest :)

    !!!--ANYONE THAT READS THIS, IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO MAKE A DONATION FOR ANDY(THE HAM WHISPERER) TO BEGIN MAKE THE, "EXTRA CLASS COURSE" PLEASE REPLY TO THIS POST SAYING THAT YOU WILL MAKE A DONATION IF HE AGREES TO IT & EMAIL ME AT THE EMAIL LISTED ABOVE SO I CAN HAVE YOUR CONTACT INFO. IF HE AGREES I WILL EITHER GET IS PAYPAL EMAIL AND PASS IT TO YOU ALL OR USE MINE TO COLLECT THEN SEND HIM THE DONATIONS VIA A SEPARATE METHOD!!!

    I'M SURE ANDY IS A BUSY MAN, IT'S A BLESSING TO HAVE HIM IN THE HAM COMMUNITY. HE HAS WALKED ME THROUGH MY TECH & GENERAL WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. YES YOU HEARD IT RIGHT. I PREPARED WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. """HE IS THAT GOOD""" :)

    IF WE CAN GATHER A GOOD ENOUGH DONATION IF HE AGREES I'M SURE IT WILL HELP WITH THE TIME IT WILL TAKE. I KNOW THE EXTRA WILL BE ALMOST LIKE THE TECH & GENERAL TOGETHER.

  75. I read the book, watched the videos, took a class and I passed the test.
    Now I am KF7ZAS, and really stoked about it.

    Now all I need is a radio.

  77. Just passed my Tech & General this morning.

    To all who are waiting on the updated General: Stop Waiting! The questions are close enough that while you may not ace it, you will pass. The reason being is that Andy does a great job explaining the material and helps you actually learn the material.

    Do note, if you are memorizing answers, the letters (a,b,c...) will be in different order as well as some slight rewording, but 95% is the same.

    Thanks Andy!

  81. Hi!

    I am enjoying going through all of the Technician Class License Course modules. Are these modules up to date as of December 2012? I am preparing to take my Technician Class test soon.

    Just wondering as I noticed the note that the General Class Lincese Course modules are good through June 2011.

    Thanks,

    Ron F.

  83. Dear Andy,

    December 15th, 2012 I passed both my Technician and General exams after going through your courses.

    I am a 68 year old retired pastor, and really wish that you had lessons for Extra Class. (I hope to be tested for Extra this weekend in Ft. Worth.)

    I owe the bulk of my success to your great sacrifice, and wonderful contribution to Amateur Radio. Thank you!

  84. Hi!

    I just wanted to say thanks for the excellent courses. By going through your courses on my own, I passed my Technician Class test in late December with a perfect score and will soon be studying toward a General Class license.

    Keep up the good work!

  89. I'm guessing Andy has abandoned us. His last post was nearly a year ago. I'm on lesson 22 in the Tech course and I was really looking forward to taking the Tech and General together until I realized that the General section is obsolete.

    I REALLY hope he comes back! I've learned a LOT from the Tech course I've been bragging about it to everyone that has a radio!!

    ANDY!! PLEASE COME BACK TO US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. I passed both the tech and the general today after using both the courses. Even though the Questions are old they give you the background you need to pass the general exam. Give it a try and good luck!

  93. I passed the Tech and the General in well under an hour. Even though the General section is out of date, there were only one or two questions that weren't in this course.

    I really appreciate it Andy!!!

  95. I checked your website and I cannot find part 2 for T1F and part 2 for T2B.

  96. Thank you Andy - Mr. Whisperer ; ) I completed both you technician and general courses and easily passed my tests.

    For those holding off because the General is not "current" I can tell you that if you take the course you will develop the basis to pass the general test because Andy explains the answers and teaches how to apply this knowledge to any similar line of questioning.

    A big thumbs up!

  100. I have been meaning to post on here for a while, and wanted to thank you for your videos.

    For both the tech and general exams, the only studying I did was watching your videos twice for each exam and passed with flying colors both times.

    The general exam had been updated but I still passed with just your videos... many of the questions were the same and the new ones were not a problem either since you explained the theory behind the questions.

    Thanks Andy!

  103. Hi Andy...
    Passed the Tech.. thanks

    So I am glad to see people took the general and passed still using the old content.

    So I would still like to know if and when the General will be updated.

    2nd. Will you also be posting anything for the Extra.

    I would like to go for the General and Extra at the same time if they will let me.

    Thanks

    1. Hey Michael! Thanks for the nice comments...I'm still around. In between trips overseas, the government saw it fit to send me to grad school, so free time has been in shortage. I'm chipping away at updating the tech videos so they don't find the same fate as the general class ones have. I'm also looking at posting some homebrew projects, get a better website, and diversify a bit. Thanks for the concern! And, my license renewal application has been submitted, so I should be OK. 73! -Andy

  112. I wanted to thank you Andy. I went through all of your videos for Technician and General license tests. After watching the videos I would go through the questions using the ARRL software.

  114. I passed my tech class using you videos. I am now an extra my call is AF5OD. A friend also just passed his tech Saturday using your videos. He has not received his call sign yet. Thanks for the great work. I hope you will be producing new videos for the new question pool and general videos would be great also. I have 2 family members that are using your videos to study also.

  120. Andy,

    Thank you for your contribution to the amateur radio community.

    I studied your T-series for about a week and the G-series (out of date) for two days prior to taking the exams on 05/17/2014. I scored 94% on the Technician class and 80% on the General class. My call sign was posted on the log yesterday.

    Since I want to take the Extra class exam next month, I bought the ARRL book. If you put up the YouTube tutorials for that class soon, please let me know.

  121. Andy,
    I was a General years ago and let my license expire because my work got to be all consuming. After I retired I wanted to get back into ham but had to pass the tests again. I have found you study courses to be a great refresher. I passed the tech without a problem and will pass the general soon as I am taking it slow and trying to let everything sink in after having been away so long. 73's

  122. Andy, thank you so much for the VERY helpful videos, I also used your book " The Ham Whisperer's Technician Class License Course" They were both a big help along with a little help from QRZ.com. I am 13 and I have a friend that wants to get his license too so I will recommend your books and videos to him. Again, THANK YOU!����

  123. Oh yeah, by the way, my technicians exam is this Saturday, and when I pass I'll post my call sign. I'm confident thanks to your book and videos.

  127. Yes I was wondering the same thing. Will there be 2014 question pool updates? Everything I have seen so far is great. Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  128. I'm trying to decide what to do. I watched all your videos. Right after in June I passed a practice exam from the new pool and just now failed a recent one. Do you know when you might have the videos ready as indicated in your reply on March 1, 2014 to a comment here? I really like your videos. I would much rather repeat this route. Thanks.

  130. I've been studying my CW and my tech. I was learning from your site. I was studying for tech on your site but didn't get through it before they changed the test. I was wondering if you are going to put a 2014 practice test out? It really helped me a lot. I get really nervous on any test and your teaching the way you do really helped. I'm 67yrs now and don't contain as easy as when I was younger. Getting older isn't all that great!! I would really like to get my tech. Could you please answer. Thank you Kar

  131. I just passed the technician and the General at the same time with an almost perfect score..thanks!! I am just wondering if you have the Extra ready to go yet. Your videos are great!
