On 2018 July 1, the FCC's question pool for the Technician class license will be changing.

Has anyone written up a summary of the updates or made a list of differences from the previous pool? What are the most significant changes I should be aware of when helping prospective hams study for the test?

I found the new question pool at http://www.ncvec.org/page.php?id=369 and it includes some errata notes but as far as I can tell they are edits made from earlier drafts of the new pool rather than differences from the old.

There's a decent summary here.

  • $\begingroup$ That link shows the differences between the current pool (January) and the pool before that in 2017. I think the OP wanted the differences between the current pool and the new one that will be released in July. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ There's a new pool once every 4 years. The new pool goes live in July 2018. So my link is correct. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Yep, link is correct and helpful — I'm only hesitant to mark as the accepted answer since StackExchange encourages "self-contained" answers. [Maybe a mod could link to that guideline?] $\endgroup$ Jun 5 '18 at 6:50
