As promised, here is the handout from yesterday’s class in Fremont. It looks much better in full color. Here’s what each page has:
Page 1: The “Schematic Scavenger Hunt”. We did the first three rows, from resistors to capacitors. We’ll learn about the rest next week.
Page 2: Technician test diagrams. These are the three figures that appear on the test. The questions are generally worded like “What is component 6 in figure T2?”. (Bonus points if you comment back and tell me the answer)
Page 3: Resistor color code reference + handy way to identify transistors. We didn’t talk about transistors yet; we’ll cover that next week.
We had more people that I expected for yesterday evening’s session! That’s awesome! But it also meant I hadn’t printed out enough handouts ahead of time. Here’s the reference sheet as a PDF for anyone who wasn’t able to take one home.
There are a few things that we didn’t get a chance to cover, such a the PIE formula and decibels, but we’ll cover some of the things we missed next week.
Come on out to learn about ham radio with Bill, Wes, and Emma! We are putting on a weekly ham radio class geared towards kids, with the goal of teaching the concepts needed to pass the test and earn their own ham radio license!
We will be meeting outside in one of the pavilions in Fremont Lake Park each week on Tuesday @ 7:00 PM.
