2016-E1A: Operating Standards: frequency privileges; emission standards; automatic message forwarding; frequency sharing; stations aboard ships or aircraft

2016-E1A01: When using a transceiver that displays the carrier frequency of phone signals, which of the following displayed frequencies represents the highest frequency at which a properly adjusted USB emission will be totally within the band?

3 kHz below the upper band edge

The exact upper band edge

300 Hz below the upper band edge

1 kHz below the upper band edge



2016-E1A02: When using a transceiver that displays the carrier frequency of phone signals, which of the following displayed frequencies represents the lowest frequency at which a properly adjusted LSB emission will be totally within the band?

3 kHz above the lower band edge

The exact lower band edge

300 Hz above the lower band edge

1 kHz above the lower band edge



2016-E1A03: With your transceiver displaying the carrier frequency of phone signals, you hear a station calling CQ on 14.349 MHz USB. Is it legal to return the call using upper sideband on the same frequency?

No, the sideband will extend beyond the band edge

Yes, because you were not the station calling CQ

Yes, because the displayed frequency is within the 20 meter band

No, U.S. stations are not permitted to use phone emissions above 14.340 MHz



2016-E1A04: With your transceiver displaying the carrier frequency of phone signals, you hear a DX station calling CQ on 3.601 MHz LSB. Is it legal to return the call using lower sideband on the same frequency?

No, the sideband will extend beyond the edge of the phone band segment

Yes, because the DX station initiated the contact

Yes, because the displayed frequency is within the 75 meter phone band segment

No, U.S. stations are not permitted to use phone emissions below 3.610 MHz



2016-E1A05: What is the maximum power output permitted on the 60 meter band?

100 watts PEP effective radiated power relative to the gain of a half-wave dipole

50 watts PEP effective radiated power relative to an isotropic radiator

50 watts PEP effective radiated power relative to a dipole

100 watts PEP effective radiated power relative to an isotropic radiator



2016-E1A06: Where must the carrier frequency of a CW signal be set to comply with FCC rules for 60 meter operation?

At the center frequency of the channel

At the lowest frequency of the channel

At the highest frequency of the channel

On any frequency where the signal's sidebands are within the channel



2016-E1A07: Which amateur band requires transmission on specific channels rather than on a range of frequencies?

60 meter band

12 meter band

17 meter band

30 meter band



2016-E1A08: If a station in a message forwarding system inadvertently forwards a message that is in violation of FCC rules, who is primarily accountable for the rules violation?

The control operator of the originating station

The control operator of the packet bulletin board station

The control operators of all the stations in the system

The control operators of all the stations in the system not authenticating the source from which they accept communications



2016-E1A09: What is the first action you should take if your digital message forwarding station inadvertently forwards a communication that violates FCC rules?

Discontinue forwarding the communication as soon as you become aware of it

Notify the originating station that the communication does not comply with FCC rules

Notify the nearest FCC Field Engineer's office

Discontinue forwarding all messages



2016-E1A10: If an amateur station is installed aboard a ship or aircraft, what condition must be met before the station is operated?

Its operation must be approved by the master of the ship or the pilot in command of the aircraft

The amateur station operator must agree not to transmit when the main radio of the ship or aircraft is in use

The amateur station must have a power supply that is completely independent of the main ship or aircraft power supply

The amateur operator must have an FCC Marine or Aircraft endorsement on his or her amateur license



2016-E1A11: Which of the following describes authorization or licensing required when operating an amateur station aboard a U.S.-registered vessel in international waters?

Any FCC-issued amateur license

Any amateur license with an FCC Marine or Aircraft endorsement

Only General class or higher amateur licenses

An unrestricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit



2016-E1A12: With your transceiver displaying the carrier frequency of CW signals, you hear a DX station's CQ on 3.500 MHz. Is it legal to return the call using CW on the same frequency?

No, one of the sidebands of the CW signal will be out of the band

Yes, the DX station initiated the contact

Yes, the displayed frequency is within the 80 meter CW band segment

No, U.S. stations are not permitted to use CW emissions below 3.525 MHz



2016-E1A13: Who must be in physical control of the station apparatus of an amateur station aboard any vessel or craft that is documented or registered in the United States?

Any person holding an FCC issued amateur license or who is authorized for alien reciprocal operation

Only a person with an FCC Marine Radio

Only a person named in an amateur station license grant

Any person named in an amateur station license grant or a person holding an unrestricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit



2016-E1A14: What is the maximum bandwidth for a data emission on 60 meters?

2.8 kHz

60 Hz

170 Hz

1.5 kHz
