Technician is the entry-level ham radio license that lets you operate on all ham channels from 30 MHz up, which includes the very popular VHF and UHF bands. To get your license you must pass a multiple-choice test.

Memorizing the answers to 350 questions is difficult, but The Fast Track makes it easier by explaining the reasoning and technology behind each correct answer.

Well explained and excellent narration.

I'm studying for my UK amateur licence but managed to pick up a lot of info from this as it's of course universal principles, if not the same legal rules.

I found the narrator kept my attention well and I've enjoyed listening to this in the car and whilst I work. I would love some extra follow up books on the other levels or concentrating on specific areas such as antenna design or radio theory.

Many thanks!
