Study for your Technician Class License

Rich (W6EC) of the Hi-Landers club would like to help you study for your Technician Class Ham License. Rich has created a PowerPoint 11 module presentation to help you on your way. Start with the Introduction and work your way through each Sub-Element. The PowerPoint is in PowerPoint Show (PPSX) format. Please email the webmaster (Rich W6EC) if you have problems, we can work together to resolve them.

To get full function of each presentation once initiated click on the Slide Show tab then from the beginning that way the wrong answers will drop away.

I suggest you use MS office I could not get the presentation to work on Android or Open Office.
