    Here on QRZ, you can take practice tests, after studying, to help identify what areas you need to bone up on.
    Good luck to you.

    Dont use 14.313, 7.200, or 75 meters (may use 75 if you have enough whiskey)

    I agree on the first two, but there is generally nothing wrong with most of 75m. Sure some of the groups that hang out there don't care too much for drop-ins (especially unamplified stations, as the band is rather noisy a lot of time and 100W will only work on good nights), but many do, and some are even inviting. I have also had plenty of good QSOs just calling CQ on 75m. In fact, I think we need MORE people calling CQ on 75m (and everywhere else).
