Here are the answers to last weeks questions...
G1A05 (A) [97.301(d)] Which of the following frequencies is in the General class portion of the 40-meter band in ITU Region 2?
A. 7.250 MHz
B. 7.500 MHz
C. 40.200 MHz
D. 40.500 MHz
-- On 40m, General Class operators may only operate SSB from 7.175 to 7.300 MHz. That means 7.250 MHz is a frequency in the General Class portion of the 40 meter band. (G1A05)

A. Select a frequency just below the MUF
B. Select a frequency just above the LUF
C. Select a frequency just below the critical frequency
D. Select a frequency just above the critical frequency
-- When selecting a frequency for lowest attenuation when transmitting on HF, select a frequency just below the MUF
