In the UK there are three types of radio amateur licences. Each one gives a different level of privileges and requires tests at a different level to be passed. The entry point for all newcomers into the hobby is via the Foundation licence, progressing on to Intermediate, culminating in the Advanced exam for a full licence.
Each licence level has to be achieved before the next can be taken. Please come along to our meetings if you would like to find out more. The club runs courses and gives advice on training to members.
