Hello Chris/G4OKW
You missed my point about tick tests.
The tick test is like a lottery. Any person could have a stab at ticking the boxes and possibly pass the test, knowing nothing about the subject. Or
Assuming one did a crash course in a subject and then had some knowledge and then took the test, the answer is one the paper and there is a good chance it would be recognized. On the other hand if exams were like the type that preceded the tick test there was no chance of guesswork because the student was presented with a BLANK sheet of paper, a pen and the exam questions.
One was expected to get at least 60% with 70 - 90% not unusual. I would say the standard has dropped dramatically over the years.
Listen on 80 metres to the conversations and radio topics are seldom discussed because the majority of operators know little or nothing about  radio and associated electronics. The topics are normally about everything under the sun except amateur radio.
