About the Audio Support Files
These audio support files were created by R. Jay Goos, WS0Y, for the RRRA Self Study Technician License Exam Preparation Course.
They are intended for students who would prefer to go through the textbook 3–4 pages at a time with additional explanation of the concepts.
These audio support files are a project independent of Stu Turner or Ham Radio School and are in support the educational objectives of the RRRA and the NDSU Amateur Radio Society.
Students outside the Fargo-Moorhead area, or those not affiliated with the NDSU Amateur Radio Society, are welcome to use the audio support files. But they must find a mentor through their local ham radio club (Google search), or an online forum, for assistance.
