Welcome to HamTests

For nearly 10 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.

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 official study books and courses available (for the UK practical elements) from local amateur radio clubs & societies.

    Goodbye, for real this time, but...
    by Paul - Tuesday, 31 July 2018, 8:16 PM
     

    I'm sorry to have dragged this out.

    Last year my fellow Admin pulled out and I tried badly to run HamTests on own. I should have listened and bowed out gracefully then. 

    So this time I'm here to say we are closing this time, but maybe as a result of the delay we are not losing some work.

    * HamTests as is, is Closing

    * Personal Information is being deleted by us (nothing sold or given away)

    * Questions Database will be made available shortly after site closes at end of August as Moodle compatible download

    * Sites offering online mock tests, especially with our old Database will be allowed a link from us

    * No you can't host for us, this decision is final

    From today, no support will be offered for site issues

    It's sad, but the Aim for HamTests was achieved. Peter 2MØSQL and myself Paul MØTZO wanted an online way to train for our tests.

    We've won awards, we've set the benchmark, but our time has ended. We hope our legacy will go on.

    At end of August will will close this site and delete user database.

    Please reply here any questions I've not answered.

    We've had a good fun 10+ years and have many good memories. We still try to get to Guernsey for IOTA because of this site. We wish you all the best with your studies and would hope to have a QSO some time.

    73 (sadly)

    Signup Issues
    by Paul - Friday, 20 April 2018, 8:24 AM
     

    I've been made aware there is an issue with Recaptcha for people currently signing up to HamTests.

    Our current version needs to be updated for recaptcha to work again, so may need to sort manually verifying accounts for a short while.

    This will be looked at over weekend. 

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Hamtests Latest Update
    by Paul - Wednesday, 6 September 2017, 12:45 PM
     

    Just a quick reminder that Hamtests is not closing, nor moving to new severs or owners.

    Paul M0TZO is currently sole Admin, and he's building a small team to update Hamtests.

    We wish to thank Peter 2M0SQL for the help over the years from founding the site with me, but his health must come first.

    It is also hoped that we will be returning the American Questions as well, and as the questions pool's are available, this may happen quite soon. 

    Please message Paul if you wish to volunteer some time regularly to help update the site.
