As a number of experienced amateurs with advanced licences attend workshops, assistance can also be offered to hams studying for F call licence  or those who want to upgrade their current licence. Why not get skills in sending and receiving CW (morse code)? Amateurs who want to dust off their CW skills can be given tuition aiming for hands on “on air” QSOs.
Want to sit an the exam for an Amateur Radio Operators Licence?
SCARC is now offering the opportunity for candidates to sit for an Amateur Radio Licence exam. 
If you are wishing to sit exams and/ or upgrades then these can be organised – Contact the Secretary for more information.
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.
