In a world where Amateur Radio ought to be on the cutting edge of technology, far too often hams are seen as being “old school” and “behind the times”. There is no part of the hobby where this is more painfully obvious than in that of amateur radio license study and examinations.
Signal Stuff is dedicated to enhancing the use of technology in the amateur radio licensing technology. When you purchase things from our website, here are some of the efforts you are supporting:
HamStudy aims to provide smarter study tools for anyone seeking to enter or advance in the Amateur Radio hobby. Studying with just practice exams is like prepping for a math final by throwing darts at an answer sheet and just reading the result — sure, it works, but it’s not the most efficient way to do it.
HamStudy provides an intelligent study mode, explanations (maintained by the community!) for all questions, and practice exams which are geared towards giving you a realistic look at where you are and where to focus your studies. While it is not a full instructional tool, it may still be enough for many by itself with the included explanations and it pairs well with any other instructional tool you may decide to use.
ExamTools is the other side of the coin — the half where the license exams are actually administered. Since 2006 several exam sessions have been using ExamTools to administer computerized exams and facilitate paperwork, but once social distancing began in March of 2020 due to COVID-19 ExamTools really came into its own.
We have spent hundreds of hours revamping ExamTools in order to better facilitate fully remote license exams — and all of it is paid for by the products which Signal Stuff sells.
