ARLB009 NCVEC Question Pool Committee Seeks Input for Updated
Technician Question Pool

The National Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC -
http://www.ncvec.org/ ) Question Pool Committee (QPC -
http://www.ncvec.org/page.php?id=333 ) is requesting input from the
amateur radio community on new or modified questions for the 2022 -
2026 FCC Element 2 Technician Pool, which goes into effect on July
1, 2022. This may include suggestions for new questions, changes to
current examination topic areas, or changes to existing questions in
the current Technician Question Pool.

The QPC offered guidelines that said it's seeking input that focuses
on topics that enhance public interest, understanding, and use of
amateur radio, or focus on STEM hands-on learning and education, as
well as questions on new technology, digital modes, station setup
and operation, antennas, and emergency and non-emergency operation.

To submit suggested questions for QPC review, the committee asks
that questions have no more than two 70-character lines, including
spaces. Distractors should be no more than 70-character lines long,
and shorter if possible. Each multiple-choice question must be
accompanied by four possible distractors and only one correct
answer. The answer choices may be in any order, but the correct
answer must be indicated by the letters A, B, C, or D at the
beginning of the question. Those submitting suggestions should
provide the resource information that supports the correct answer or
the FCC Part 97 rule.

The QPC will accept question comments, revisions, and submissions
from the amateur radio community via email through June 30, 2021.
This email address is a bulk forwarding mailbox, so no
acknowledgement will be sent by return email. The NCVEC QPC will
take all comments into consideration as it updates the Technician
Question Pool for 2022 - 2026.

The email address is, QPCinput@ncvec.org .
