General:
The General Class license is the second of three US Amateur Radio licenses. To upgrade to General Class, you must already hold a Technician Class license (or have recently passed the Technician license exam). Upgrading to a General license--which conveys extensive HF privileges—only requires passing a written examination; Morse Code no longer required. Once you do, the entire range of operating modes and the majority of the amateur spectrum below 30 MHz become available to you. Textbook required, General Class License Manual 8th Edition Item #0307 (ISBN 978-1-62595-030-7) $29.95 Buy from SCARC and save shipping, from the ARRL or from SCARC at a monthly meeting or our Hamfrest in August.

Note that the 8th Edition Manual is required in order to match the current question pool which became effective July 1, 2015. Previous versions are obsolete and will not address all questions in the current question pool!
