I guess with the influx of new users to the Fediverse, we're doing introductions now, so here's mine:

So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.

I wonder why it is that #Canada requires people who hold a basic certificate in #AmateurRadio to know about building electrical circuits when you can't actually build your own equipment without also having an advanced certificate.

If nothing else, it's a nice refresher.

Still studying for my #AmateurRadio test (in Canada). Apparently, I'm expected to know how the spectrum is carved up and things like bandwidths and power levels that are permitted at various frequency ranges at various licensing levels. I'm generally good with numbers, but I hate arbitrary lookup tables.

How are people supposed to just commit this stuff to memory? Are notes permitted when taking the test?

Thinking about getting my #AmateurRadio license. I found a site that had some pretty good study information and I was really happy until I unexpectedly hit a paywall. Granted, that seems to be the norm with these sites, but disclosing that up front might've been nice.

Apparently, there is no fee for the test in Canada, so they make their money on the study materials instead.
I used Hamstudy for my exams in the US:

It was free all the way through, and it looks like they have the Canadian question banks as well. They don’t have much content beyond the question and brief explanations, but I used it to pass all three US exams in one go.
@John Best Ooh. That's helpful. Thanks. πŸ™‚
