An Extra Class “No-Nonsense” Study Guide

Last summer, we had some discussion about doing an Extra Class study guide, similar to my No-Nonsense Tech and General Class study guides. I kinda dropped the ball on that, being really busy with other things. I’m sorry about that.

In the meantime, I’ve been doing some thinking about how to approach this, and I’m going to try to do this as a wiki (think Wikipedia). A wiki will allow this to be a real community effort, with many different contributors. I’ve set up a new website for this effort – HamRadioUniversity.Com. I’ve gotten the ball rolling by doing section E1A, and Richards, K8JHR, has volunteered to do sections E1B and E1C.

The style is to reword the questions as statements, group related questions, and add just enough text to give the question some context. That is the style I used in both the Tech and General Class study guides, and it seems to work real well. K8JHR suggested adding a
reference to the actual question. I’ve done that in section E1A. I’ve also created a page with the actual questions and linked to it.

If you’d like to help out and have some time to do so, let me know, and I’ll create a login for you. Many wikis (like Wikipedia) allow anyone to create and edit pages, but I’m going to restrict that access on this website. Anyone will be able to read the study guide, but those who can write and edit will be limited.

If you have any other questions, e-mail or phone me. Ideally, I’d like to get about a dozen authors for this project.
