Education & Training
The Society exists for anyone interested in radio and digital
communications. It is not exclusively for licenced amateurs, but
the club runs courses for those who would like to be licenced. A
foundation amateur radio qualification can be obtained with suitable
training, a practical, and brief test. The club can provide
training and administer the computerised tests, which are organised by
the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) on behalf of Ofcom.
Courses and examinations for "intermediate" and "full licences" are
also provided for those wishing to advance their knowledge and use
higher power transmitters. People from all walks of life are
qualified radio amateurs. Mail [email protected] or come and see us
to talk it over.
