New Amateur Extra Question Pool Released | Eau Claire Amateur Radio Club
By Chuck Gysi. The Federal Communications Commission tasks the administration of amateur radio testing with local ham clubs all across the United States and its territories. The questions used by each club for on-site, inperson written test sessions must be drawn from a pool of multiple-choice questions that are revised by a nationwide committee every four years for the three license classes: Technician, General and Extra. The Technician class exam, known as Element 2, that is being used by examiners until draws from a pool of total questions in a variety of topics. Those taking the Technician test will find a total of 35 questions on their exam. After you pass the Technician test, you can take the General exam, either at the same test session or any time in the future.
