      • iPhone useres

        iPhone users. I discovered that I have to turn on my Bluetooth when in the car. I then receive the audio through my car speakers.

        • just a thank you

          I may be able to pass the real exam when I take it. my error rate is 2 to 4 per test. I tried the general exam and blew it badly. The technician exam seems like something I have studied before, and I am getting refreshed on it. I will use this resource as I get the book and study for my general license

            • ignore my previous post and publish this solution to my iPad sound problem

              If iPad headphones work, but not the iPad speakers, the problem may be "soft mute". See http://www.spalding.org/faq/apple-ios-app-no-sound/586.
              On my iPad, after tapping the Home button twice and getting the screen of shortcuts, I saw a disabled "bell" icon. I tapped it to enable it. I now have sound through my iPad speakers.

              • AA9PW. A question regarding your testing.

                sir. Sir I am not a ham but my Ham buddy is writing this for me.
                I have been taking your test now for about two months. I run thru it every evening and my friend gives me the test. I have been getting 100% every time I take the test. My problem is when I went into the Local Amature radio Club to take my test. I could not make heads or tails out of the questions as they were completely different than your material and he said your material was out dated and we are using a new…

                  Hi Ralph, All of the question pools on the site are the current editions (Technician is valid through 6/18, General is valid through 6/19 and the Extra is valid through 6/20). If you can give me more information about which exam you are taking and which book they are using to study from then perhaps we can get to the bottom of it.

                  Cheers, Simon, AA9PW

                • Excellent morse code practice!

                  The system you're using is very helpful -- thanks for helping me get my morse code skills back!

                      Hi Paul – thanks for pointing this out, I will see if I can update the MP3 player plugin. In the meantime you can click on the MP3 link directly (lower down the page where it says ‘You can also view/download the audio in AU format or MP3 format’) and this should open up Chrome’s own MP3 player and allow you to listed to the file.

                                  • I'd like to see a data box I can paste text into and have your cw engine play them back.

                                    I think your site is spectacular for improving ones code speed from 5 WPM up to any speed, once you know the code. there are lots of sites for teaching the basic code, but not much in the way for speed improvement. W1AW is not much good for improvement, btw.

                                    In an effort to improve my cw speed, I have created a series of data files including various lengths of random numbers, 1000 of the most often used words in the english language, radio terms, weather terms, male first names, Ham manufacturers, etc. I have to paste the files into…

                                      • Resize letters bigger and add carriage returns so letters don't run together (a lot of this looks alike!)

                                        Hello,

                                        I have been trying 5 "groups" of code in
                                        practicing Morse code on your website.

                                        I've been losing my spot and thinking I had
                                        a lot more letters wrong than I actually did.

                                        I was thinking of copying and pasting the (correct)
                                        letters into a word processing document and
                                        resizing the letters and adding carriage returns.

                                        Then I thought: maybe I can ask you to do that automatically
                                        on your website?

                                        It's just a suggestion but it may help myself and others

                                        Thanks for your consideration.

                                        73

                                          Hello,

                                          My name is Kim and my call is N9UBJ.
                                          I wanted to say "hi" to you.
                                          I too am from Wisconsin.

                                          I have used your website, AA9PW FCC Exam Practice


                                          AA9PW FCC Exam Practice

                                          extensively.

                                          I have a General class license and attribute much of my
                                          success to your website which let me practice questions
                                          from the General class license pool.

                                          I am now practicing Morse code and am happy to see
                                          you employ both the Farnsworth and Koch methods.

                                          I have a "no code" license. I am glad the FCC does not require
                                          Morse code anymore. I, like…
