But at URL: http://www.arrl.org/FandES/ead/classes.html

It states:
Technician Class

Hams enter the hobby as Technicians by passing a 35-question multiple-choice
examination. No Morse code test is required. The exam covers basic
regulations, operating practices, and electronics theory, with a focus on
VHF and UHF applications.

Technician Class operators are authorized to use all amateur VHF and UHF
frequencies (all frequencies above 50 MHz). Technicians who pass a 5 WPM
Morse code examination are entitled to limited power outputs on certain HF
frequencies. "Technicians with HF" may operate on the 80, 40, and 15 meter
bands using CW, and on the 10 meter band using CW, voice, and digital modes.



Also for freq and power limits -- see URL:

Hmmmm. How about "Technicians with HF" (term is from the ARRL
website)? I was trying to say that I was also taking the code test
portion also.

Hmmmmm, the FCC

(
http://wireless.fcc.gov/services/ama...atorclass.html)says

"A Technician Class licensee who also has passed a 5 words-per-minute
(wpm) telegraphy examination receives privileges in four long distance
shortwave bands in the HF range (3-30 MHz) (Refer to Section 97.301)"

Is this incorrect or outdated? As I said before this is all new to me!

MikeB


There was a change. FCC dropped Tech Plus for new licensees. You will need
to take the General for HF. At present that requires 5 wpm.

I would recommend the K2 by electocraft (?). Get the basic 5 watt kit.
Then upgrade with additional components later. All reviews say it is a good
choice.

Hmmm -- from the FCC Site URL:
http://wireless.fcc.gov/services/ama...tml#technician

Technician

The privileges of a Technician Class operator license include operating
stations while transmitting on channels in any of 17 frequency bands above
50 MHz with up to 1,500 watts of power. To pass the Technician Class
examination, at least 26 questions from a 35 question written examination
must be answered correctly. A Technician Class licensee who also has passed
a 5 words-per-minute (wpm) telegraphy examination receives privileges in
four long distance shortwave bands in the HF range (3-30 MHz) (Refer to
Section 97.301).

Need to ask a local VEC or VE if they are still administering a tech exam
with 5 wpm code. I thought they were. But will report back.

Our local VE sez:

Hi All

Technician = All privileges above 30 MHz

Technician with CSCE for 5 WPM code = All privileges above 30 MHz plus code
on
10, 15, 40, and 80 meters in the Novice sub-bands and voice privileges on 10
meters from 28.3 to 28.5 MHz.

Cautionary note = For the purpose of upgrading, the CSCE expires in one
year, although the Tech with code privileges will continue.

It's the government. Go Figure.

Incorrect and Outdated. Prior to the FCC restructuring of the Amateur
Bands, Tech Plus's could operate on HF. However, with the new rules in
place, you need to be a General class or higher in order to operate on HF.
