Re: [ScoutRadio] Re: No Code Tech presentation files
- Greetings to everyone
I have suddenly gotten a lot of responses requesting the PowerPoint
files. I will put them on my FTP site and post the address here.
I got the original files from
http://www.hamradioinstructor.com/index.html What I have done is to
merge the 6 lessons that N5NA did, and then match up with the PowerPoint
that has the Tech Question pool. I pulled the questions from the pool
and added to the end of each lesson. I have deleted any pulled
questions. I also use the "Cliff Notes" as a handout along with the
Technician Band plan, and a file that I have that lists Amateur Radio
Resources, (local clubs, stores, ARRL, FCC etc). This combination seems
to make for a very good flowing class. I normally have the class over 2
days 8 hours per day, with practice Exams from the ARRL instructors
guide. If they can pass at least 2 of the practice I recommend they
take the VE exam. If they cannot pass at least 2 of the exams, I
recommend they spend some time studying maybe with a Mentor then take
the test. I am averaging about a 85% first time pass rate so far.
The numbers are creeping up because I have started Strongly recommending
that the student read the Now you are talking before coming to class.
I have been conducting some surveys of the students and have notice that
those who have read the book completely as well as attended the class
seem to have a 100% pass rate.
I also have some Powerpoint slides that James Alderman created for
Radio Merit Badge. I will post those as well.
