Thank you I'm anxious for the next episode #62!!!
Thank you I'm anxious for episode #62 to get posted on youtube.
It appears that was a mis-statement. The correct information was displayed on the screen. Subelement E1 (Commission Rules) has 75 potential questions divided into 6 groups. Of those 75 questions in this subelement, 6 of them are included on the exam.
Good luck, Chuck. You'll find that when the new cycle gets going having that additional slice of the band is like getting an amplifier! It opens up a lot (and it is very satisfying to have done the exam too).
A very good presentation on what it's about. My advice is if your ready to do it, bite the bullet and go for it. Having taken tests from the last pool and this current pool in the pursuit of Extra, the difference after July 1, will make you or break you if your using the current pool of questions to study. At least make a try for it before the pool changes. I found significant changes over the past 4 years and the 2 pools being used during those years. when trying to study for the EXTRA. A change mid-stream in test questions throws a pretty good left hook at you.
And yes, the AMATEUR EXTRA is only 50 questions, not 75. That was a presentation error caused confusing the numbers a questions in subelement groups with the number of questions and the actual EXTRA exam test you will take. It was a flub on the presenter's part. They let it slip through with that mistake.
If you know the material, it doesn't matter what the questions are. The answers will seem to jump off the page at you.
You gents always do a great job! Thank you for your efforts to keep ham radio going!
