Welcome to The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, the most popular introduction to Amateur Radio of all!  You're in good company - there are thousands of other folks getting ready to join the ranks of "ham" radio operators.  In this study guide, not only will you learn enough to pass your Technician license exam, you'll also learn what ham radio is all about and how to jump right in once you're ready to go on the air.

The ARRL also provides ARRL Exam Review - an online browser-based resource for reviewing and practicing the exams using the current version of the ARRL license manuals for all three license classes.

This page is organized to support the Fourth Edition of the Ham Radio License Manual.
