BARK uses Gordon West/ W 5 YI Group Teaching Method rather than the ARRL W 5 YI Group- requires 18 hours of instruction. This method “teaches the test” and provides a limited amount of in depth knowledge. The theory is that you will learn more once you get on the air. ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League)- requires 60 hours of instruction. Lots of in depth class work.
W 5 YI Group Syllabus 1. Intro to Ham Radio 2. About Ham Radio 3. Your License 4. Your Call Sign 5. You are in Control 6. Mind Our Rules 7. Tech License Frequencies 8. Your First Radio 9.
