AMATEUR RADIO LICENSURE EXAMINATION

Ham radio, often referred to as amateur radio, covers some fields of science and technology, specifically electrical, electronics, and communications. Hence, group members indulge in a wide variety of communication innovations. The interests explored are two-way radio operations (most popular), emergency communications, antenna designs, and technical experimentations.

Every amateur must thoroughly understand his responsibility to develop the skills needed to operate his radio station properly. The examination to be taken by a prospective amateur or an upgrading amateur shall determine whether he qualifies for the privileges conveyed by a license or certificate.
