New Extra Question Pool Released

The ARRL have added new Amateur / Ham Radio Extra questions to the question pool, placing greater emphasis on Digital, SDRs and Propagation

The primary change is modernization of the pool to place more emphasis on digital communications, digital test equipment, software defined radios, and propagation/space weather.
— Rol Anders, K3RA

The extra questions will become part of the question pool from 1st July 2016, and will be valid through to 30th June 2020. There are also some minor corrections to existing questions.

Some questions were removed due to the topics being of less importance than currently valued by the Amateur / Ham Radio community.

The amended question pool now stands at 712 questions.
