The ARRL General Class License Manual includes EVERYTHING you need to pass your General class exam (Element 3). The General class license is the second of the three US amateur radio licenses. To upgrade to General class, you must hold a Technician class license (or have recently passed the Technician license exam). Use this manual to pass the 35-question multiple-choice examination. Upgrading to General class will increase your capabilities dramatically — making it possible to communicate with other hams across the country and around the globe!
Every page presents information you will need to pass the exam and become an effective operator. Each chapter covers small sections:
- Procedures and Practices
- Rules and Regulations
- Components and Circuits
- Radio Signals and Equipment
- Digital Modes
- Electrical and RF Safety
At the end of the book, you’ll find the entire question pool. Use this book with ARRL’s Online Exam Review for Ham Radio to take randomly generated practice tests using questions from the examination question pool.
The ARRL General Class License Manual will serve as a valuable reference when getting on the air. You’ll turn to it again and again as you enjoy your new operating privileges. When you are ready to upgrade, The ARRL Extra Class License Manual will help you prepare for the Amateur Extra exam.
