Study for your Technician Class License


Rich W6EC has created a PowerPoint presentation that can help you study for your Technician Class License. The PowerPoint is broken into ten modules.  It is in PowerPoint Show format.  I suggest you download and save the files to a folder of your choice then open the PowerPoint from that folder.  If all goes well the presentation should display in an auto play show format.  Just click your mouse or tap the space bar to advance the slide show.
