Get your Foundation licence


The Foundation Licence syllabus is thorough covering the essential basics of electronics, radio communications, several safety aspects, and the regulations. Candidates undergo a practical test on the band plans, regulations, symbols, antennas, then a hands-on ability with a typical radio station, engaging in its set up, testing or power and SWR, on-air use preparation, calling CQ and making contacts.

There is a lot to learn through the training with candidates expected to prepare by reading the updated Foundation Licence Manual available for $32.60 from our shop.

The course is held at the Amateur Radio Victoria office 40G Victory Boulevard, Ashburton.
