Icom America Sponsors New HamStudy.org Website to Support Amateur Radio Education
Icom America, leading manufacturer of amateur (ham) radio equipment and technology, announces a sponsorship for HamStudy.org, a new website that offers free learning tools for existing and potential amateur radio operators. The website is accessible at www.hamstudy.org and was created by Richard Bateman (KD7BBC), Michael Stufflebeam (KV9G) and Rich Porter.
HamStudy.org users studying for an amateur radio license exam can choose from three online learning modules for each ham radio class: technician, general or extra. FCC Commercial Element 1, 3, 5 and 6 study modules are also available. Educational materials include flash cards, question lists and practice tests.
Users who register for a free HamStudy.org account on the site can access personalized study history and submit explanations to amateur radio questions. Website registrants may also choose to log into their account using their Google or Facebook credentials. HamStudy.org is optimized for mobile phones and tablets; additional features will be integrated to the website soon. Facebook users can receive regular site updates and study tips by "liking" HamStudy.org at www.Facebook.com/HamStudy.
Icom is committed to the amateur radio hobby and supports many organizations that provide educational material for operators of any skill or experience level. In addition to HamStudy.org, Icom has also partnered with the Ham Nation weekly netcast from TwiT.tv and the AmateurLogic.tv Internet television program. Icom has also been a proud sponsor of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) since 1981. The company is the official amateur radio transceiver supplier for the BSA’s 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
