For over 5 years, HamTests has provided a Free range of resources that will help you prepare for your Amateur Radio exam. HamTests supports all levels with practice exams & some training lessons for Foundation, Intermediate and Advance Licences in UK & now Technician, General & Amateur Extra in the USA.
We aim to help you build your confidence & knowledge of the exam syllabus to get you familiar with the testing process, so that when it comes to sitting the real radio amateur exam you should be successful.
It's advisable to supplement your online training with the RSGB or ARRL official study books and courses available (for the UK practical elements) from local amateur radio clubs & societies.
Yes, we now have over 10,000 user accounts on Hamtests.
it was probably a few weeks ago, but didn't notice until Peter (2E0SQL) got a new system running to monitor the site.
Thank You to each & every member. Shame we can't thank you individually.
Paul MØTZO & Peter 2EØSQL
Earlier this afternoon, I took the server offline for a couple of minutes to add some extra systems to hopefully speed the site up.
We'll continue to monitor to make sure there isn't any problems.
As time is moving on the site admins have less time to look after and tinker with Hamtests. We're still here but an opportunity to help has arisen.
We're looking for new blood to join the Hamtests Admin team.
A Ham Radio Licence isn't a requirement as when we started Hamtests we were only Foundtion licence holders.
Time, patience, understanding, and willingness to learn, and time to spend regularly chatting with admin team.
The chance to help will be started by joining our IRC chat room. Paul (M0TZO) & Peter (2E0SQL) will there advise and sort how you can assist.
