The Technician class license is the entry-level license of choice for most new ham radio operators. To earn the Technician license requires passing one examination totaling 35 multiple-choice questions on radio theory, regulations and operating practices. You must answer at least 26 questions correct.

What are the three levels of ham radio?
The classes of license, from highest to lowest are: Amateur Extra Class, General Class, and Technician Class.

Do you need to know Morse code for ham radio?
In 1991, the Morse code test for the Technician level license was removed, allowing easier access to Ham radio. The FCC dropped the Morse code requirement for all license levels in 2007.
