Once you're licensed. And in touch with a local club. You learn the in's and out's of local amateur radio usage. When and on what repeaters nets occur. What local simplex frequencies are in use. The three repeaters that aren't listed on line. Who from your club you can reach from your house. Your car. With your walkie talkie. If you cannot see the value in having a network of familiar voices and knowledge of local operations, I've got nothing for you. I'm done here. Enjoy... It almost seems you're angry about amateur radio for some reason, lol.I still do not see your point.
Here is a practice ham test, I do not see how it will address any point you made, such as how to operate a particular unit, where to get local services frequencies, local repeaters codes, how long the info will stay in your head...etc.
Everything you mention has to be learned outside of the ham exam scope, I never said you do not have to learn your unit, and how to use it, that is actually exact opposite of what I said, I actually provided a channel that will teach you all of that, as well as the site where you can learn what frequencies used locally. As you see from practice test NONE of the things you use for your arguments are addressed in the test. But thanks for proving my point, and showing why people do not want to deal with ham community.
