|http://www.arrl.org/news/president-obama-nominates-financier-and-former-telecom-executive-tom-wheeler-as-fcc-chairman So, I don't know anything about Tom Wheeler. What do you all think, is this going to be a good or bad or neutral thing for amateur radio or is it too soon to tell? Has Tom Wheeler said or done anything about amateur radio in the past?|

|I'm studying for my General test. I wanted a website with all the test questions and the answers laid out for easier memorization and I wanted an explanation for every question saying why each answer was correct and how to calculate things that needed to be calculated. I couldn't find one, so I started making my own.
I've added the questions for the Technician test, which you can see at http://radio.wikia.com/wiki/Technician_test and I also added the questions for the General test, which you can see at http://radio.wikia.com/wiki/Technician_test I added some brief explanations for a couple questions (you can see the explanations by clicking on the title for each question). For instance, here's a question with some math explanation: http://radio.wikia.com/wiki/T1B07 And here's a diagram question which doesn't have an explanation yet, but does have the diagram: http://radio.wikia.com/wiki/G7A09
Feel free to edit it yourself. If you want to more easily track your contributions and have others respond to you, create an account, but anyone can edit it at this point.
As I have time, I'll be adding the Amateur Extra questions, then going through and writing reasons for every question, why the answer is what it is and how do to any necessary math. Again, feel free to jump in and perhaps someday nobody else will wonder, "Seriously, the only way to learn about this is to buy a new book for each test, nobody's put together a website with this information yet?"

|I don't understand most of that post, perhaps you could explain it for radio neophytes such as myself. I tried going to wspr.net and it doesn't look like a functioning website.|

|The printed one from the FCC website worked just fine. Well, they initially kicked it back, I reprinted it using the browser so that it had all the pretty pictures and blue bits here and there that are stripped out if you click the print button on the website, and the CA DMV accepted it. I received my plates a couple days ago and they look snazzy. :D|

|Great, so it looks like as long as I don't go over 1000 watts ERP and don't leave any trace of my activities afterward, then I'm most likely going to be ok. I'll go with that. :)|
