Amateur Radio Exams

Interested in getting an Amateur Radio Licence?
Want to get an Amateur Radio Operators Licence?  The club can provide some assistance with study and practical help in most areas of the hobby.  We have workshops, guest speakers and experimenters’ activities that you can join in. Why not get skills in sending and receiving CW (morse code)?

We may also be able to assist Amateurs who want to dust off their CW skills and be given tuition aiming for hands on “on air” QSOs.

How do I get an Amateur Radio Licence?
To get an Amateur Radio licence you will need to pass a theory test and a regulations test.  If you don’t already have the radio and electronics knowledge, you may need to read and study relevant information.  There are a number of options for this.  You can make use of the Ham Radio Theory course provided by SCARC (with special thanks to Tony, VK4KKY), or the club can provide a Foundation Manual (produced by the WIA) for a small cost.  Contact the secretary for more information.
