NAME hamexam - Study guide for USA FCC amateur radio (ham radio) license examinations.

SYNOPSIS

       hamexam {t,g,e,q}

DESCRIPTION

       hamexam presents questions in random order from the selected question pool, and terminates
       when all questions have been answered correctly. The session may be interrupted  with  ^C,
       and resumed later.

       Some  questions refer to figures. The figures for the selected question pool are displayed
       in a separate window using $PNG_VIEWER, if it is executable. If $PNG_VIEWER is  undefined,
       eog(1),  gwenview(1), gpicview(1), ristretto(1), will be used, whichever is first found to
       be an executable command. If $PNG_VIEWER is not an executable command  (e.g.  ""),  or  if
       none  of  the  other  viewers are installed, then questions which refer to figures will be
       noted and skipped.

       Licenses are issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), but  examinations  are
       administered by Volunteer Examiners.
