**Important Disclaimers and
Caveats**

This was part of the CARA Amateur Radio program.

Sample quiz question for the following week were handed out with each lab; every week there was a quiz on the material from the previous week. The quiz questions were taken from practice radio liscense exams.

Many of the circuit diagrams did not make it into the hypertext version of these labs. If there is sufficient demand, they can be made available. Petition rebull@oddjob.uchicago.edu if you want them.

**Lab #1**- This was an introduction to the course, covering metric units,
introduction to morse code, etc.
**Lab #2: Circuit Diagrams and Components**- We introduce the basic concept of a circuit diagram and define
many symbols.
**Lab #3: Ohm's Law**- We explore the relationship between V, R, and I.
**Lab #4: Parallel Circuits**- We start to construct more complicated circuits.
**Lab #5: Capacitors and Transistors**- We learn about capacitors and transistors.
**Lab #6: Electricity and Magnetism**- We make an electromagnet and a light meter.
**Lab #7: Electrical Power**- We make a graph in the process of learning about energy and power.
**Lab #8: Wavelength and Frequency**- We measure the speed of sound and do other experiments with
wavelength and frequency.
