    Just make up the questions. I'm sure that will work just fine.

    I just found The Test:

    Let's see if WA7PRC is up to the challenge!

    1) Would it be:

    A) Better

    Or

    B) Worse

    To have more hams listening at home, who would then be aware of and able to help immediately to establish communications in a Mass Disaster?

    2) At any given time of day or night, are theMAJORITY of hams in the World:

    A) At home, if they are not working.

    B) Camping.

    C) On their Honeymoon, during Field DayWeekend.

    Or

    D) Sleeping in their car, since the Honeymoon has been long over,
    with a mobile rig turned on to monitor the local Skywarn Net.

    3) During a Tornado or Hurricane, do most Hams:

    A) Shelter in place in their homes.

    B) Go Camping.

    C) Stay in the Subway with their Baofeng HT until the Crisis is over.

    D) Get in their cars and operate mobile until the event is well past their location, and then go inside.

    E) Skip the whole wedding and Honeymoon thing, and just Elope during the crisis.

    4) Referring back to Question #1 Now (Yes, it's Okay to look.) When propagation is poor,
    is it better to have:

    A) More Hams able to immediately get on the air.

    Or

    B) Less Hams with the ability to get on the air, because the Busybody Clowns Next Door don't like the look of antennas.

    5) During the recent hurricane in Puerto Rico, did the people there want:

    A) Emergency and Health and Welfare messages handled by as quickly as possible.

    Or:

    B) Not to be helped.

    SUPER BONUS QUESTION:

    6) Which one of these words appears in the Amateur Radio Parity Act Section 1083:

    loser

    residences

    cabbages

    lackies

    rayon

    Penguin

    73 and All the Best!

    God... its not like taking the IOWA test or the SAT. It's more like a 30 second MCAT or something...

    Christ, I WROTE The Test, but I still screwed up royally and picked "Penguin"!

    I'm thinking that even Gordon West would give me Ribbons of Shame for that one.

    ...So much for having a Ship Radar Endorsement!


    And So I don't know why he should be shy or embarrassed about taking it.

    This kinda reminds me of the NCLEX test. I'm all nervous and everything. Critical thinking is going into overdrive... LOL (NOT)

    Oh yea... I remember on the IOWA Test, they gave you a sample question. There was a plate. And then you had to pick three of four choices:
    Knife.
    Fork.
    Spoon.
    Eye Glasses.

    So, I picked the knife, the fork, and the eye glasses. I figured that you need your glasses to see to eat, and skipped the spoon entirely since they showed you a plate and not a bowl, so you wouldn't need the spoon at least until later since its impossible to serve soup on a plate.

    I guess it's a wonder I passed my Board of Nursing exam...
