Our next popular Foundation Licence course will be November 17th-18th.
Upcoming dates of our weekend courses.
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 $35.50 from our shop.
