Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute Handiham World Weekly E-Letter for the week of Wednesday, 18 June 2014

Welcome to Handiham World.

Guy looking at study guide for license.
ARRL Field Day will be here before we know it. It's time quick look at some basic good operating practices. 
We begin today with a feature that usually comes later on in our weekly visit  the "dip in the pool" segment.  We typically pick out a question from one of the Amateur Radio question pools, read the question, then  see how many of us can pick the correct answer from the four possible choices.  Today we are heading to the General Class question pool and looking at not one but four - yes, four - questions that are related to good operating practice.  These questions are from section G2 and are consecutive.  We will go though all four before giving the correct answers and having a short discussion.
Let's begin with G2B04, which asks: "When selecting a CW transmitting frequency, what minimum frequency separation should you allow in order to minimize interference to stations on adjacent frequencies?"
Possible answers are:
A. 5 to 50 Hz
B. 150 to 500 Hz
C. 1 to 3 kHz
D. 3 to 6 kHz
