I知 not sure how long the test takes but if it starts at 9:00 I値l probably finish up around 9:30 and then spend an hour or so looking around. Hopefully we値l run into each other.

I passed my Technicians Exam today.

I just wanted to say thanks to K31 for putting this FAQ together. I知 sure that you have many many hours invested doing the original writeup and also continuing to stay involved and offering advice through the years.

I had gotten some helpful direction from Ed Shell too and I appreciate that as well.

Time to start researching some hardware.

Looking forward to learning more and I値l probably set my sights on taking the General exam sometime in the next year.

So I got this speaker at the hamfest. It needs a plug, but I don't know which wire goes where. How can I deduce which wire goes to the center conductor on the phono plug (or does it matter)?

For a speaker, you typically have just 1/8" jack, mono out of the radio. Those big three terminal jacks, are usually for a code key.

Since a lot of the information in the Tech is repeated in the General, don't wait too long.

It doesn't look like the speaker wire touches the cabinet so I would say for a monaural hookup it doesn't matter.

The plug is a 3 conductor (stereo type) though. Does the radio have a stereo output?

I was using the phono plug only cuz it's on the front of the radio. The 1/8" is on the back.
