  1. 100%,

    i am studying my Advanced Ham Radio Licence, passed your test...Thanks

  2. very good question...of electronics

  3. very good question...of electronics

  4. Very good contents for the competative point of view.some explanation needs in few questions for enhancing the basic concepts

  5. really very useful.thanks

  6. very good work. but i think for 7th question ans option c correct
