Anyone trying to recruit a new Tech. should note that the VECs are replacing the Technician/Element 2 question pool a year early. So, you have less than six months until your current copies of Now You’re Talking become obsolete on July 1, 2006.
The schedules are likewise moved up a year for General/Element 3 (July 1, 2007) and Amateur Extra/Element 4 (July 1, 2008).
