Preppers need Their HAM License?

Many Preppers will think I don’t need a license when meeting the emergency or disaster. So No need to get the ham license.

For lots of Preppers don’t have the Ham radio License, so they can only use the license-free radios. And  everyone knows the license-free radio has the limited output power: PMR446 with the power less than 0.5w and FRS band with the power less than 2w.

So for the license-free radio, they have the limited the range. So if you want the long range communication Radio, you need to get the license, no matter business license or Ham radio License.

Also for lots of license-free radios, they don’t have enough functions to help you when meet the emergency.

That’s for Beginners Preppers. But if you are the experienced Prepper, We suggest you get the Ham radio License.

How to Get the Ham radio License?

First, you need to choose the level of license. For US, there are three classes of licenses that are offered by the FCC.

Level 1: Technician License

Level 2: General License

Level 3: Extra License

If you’re new to ham radio, then you have to pass the Technician License first.

Second, Study For The Exam.

The Technician and General License exams each have 35 Questions. To pass the test and get your license, you have to get at least 26 questions right out of the 35 questions.
