G0B06 -Why must the metal enclosure of every item of station equipment be grounded? A. It prevents blowing of fuses in case of an internal short circuit B. It prevents signal overload C. It ensures that the neutral wire is grounded D. It ensures that hazardous voltages cannot appear on the chassis
(D)
G0B07 -Which of the following should be observed for safety when climbing on a tower using a safety belt or harness? A. Never lean back and rely on the belt alone to support your weight B. Always attach the belt safety hook to the belt D-ring with the hook opening away from the tower C. Ensure that all heavy tools are securely fastened to the belt D-ring D. Make sure that your belt is grounded at all times
(B)
G0B08 -What should be done by any person preparing to climb a tower that supports electrically powered devices? A. Notify the electric company that a person will be working on the tower B. Make sure all circuits that supply power to the tower are locked out and tagged C. Unground the base of the tower D. All of these choices are correct
(B)
G0B09 -Why should soldered joints not be used with the wires that connect the base of a tower to a system of ground rods? A. The resistance of solder is too high B. Solder flux will prevent a low conductivity connection C. Solder has too high a dielectric constant to provide adequate lightning protection D. A soldered joint will likely be destroyed by the heat of a lightning strike
(D)
G0B10 -Which of the following is a danger from lead-tin solder? A. Lead can contaminate food if hands are not washed carefully after handling B. High voltages can cause lead-tin solder to disintegrate suddenly C. Tin in the solder can "cold flow" causing shorts in the circuit D. RF energy can convert the lead into a poisonous gas
(A)
G0B11 -Which of the following is good engineering practice for lightning protection grounds? A. They must be bonded to all buried water and gas lines B.
