ARLX004 NCVEC Releases Second Technician Question Pool

In January, the Question Pool Committee (QPC) of the National
Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC) released the
2010 Technician (Element 2) Question Pool. Upon further review of
the pool, members of the QPC found and corrected more than 50 minor
typographical errors and clarified the questions and answers, making
them easier to understand.

These adopted changes are now incorporated in a revised question
pool. The errata list, as well as the revised Technician question
pool, is available on the NCVEC Web site at,

The previously released pool dated January 4, 2010 is invalid for
use. The newly revised Technician question pool will become
effective for all examinations administered on or after July 1,
2010; it will remain valid until June 30, 2014.

The current Technician question pool that became effective July 1,
2006 will expire June 30, 2010. The new Technician pool contains
approximately 400 questions, from which 35 are selected for an
Element 2 examination; it will contain graphics and diagrams,
something new for this element.

The current General class question pool was effective July 1, 2007
and is valid through June 30, 2011. The current Amateur Extra class
pool was effective July 1, 2008 and is valid until June 30, 2012.
