Antenna Theory Quiz…..First of Many!

Are you up on your amateur radio antenna theory?


Why not try the Antenna Theory Quiz!

Spanning a range of topics, from the Yagi-Uda antenna’s specifics to the intricacies of phased arrays, this 20-question multiple-choice assessment is designed to test and refine your expertise. Whether you’re seeking to validate your knowledge or uncover areas for further study, this Antenna Theory Quiz offers an interesting exploration (I hope) of antenna design principles and practices!

There are plans to add a simplified Ham Radio Learning Centre to to help new hams study the necessary course content to pass the Basic Amateur Radio Exam, as well as a more detailed section for those interested in obtaining their Advanced Qualification.

This Antenna Theory Quiz is presented as a demonstration prototype to validate the Quiz functionality that will be used on Have fun with the Quiz and please use the Message to Seller link to let me know what you think about this Quiz, and the proposed Ham Radio Learning Centre project and suggestions about content and delivery, etc?
