Nice one Dave - I'm sure that will help encourage others to have a go.
Don't forget guys, you will still have to attend a course as there are practical lessons which you have to complete as part of your exam.

Another way of getting info is to visit the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society web site:

You can download Powerpoint presentations and other info to help you get by.

If you can spell your name and take basic instruction you will breeze the foundation course....
I dont mean to sound off, but its a joke.
Kids of 12 with no radio knowledge have passed it.
Its so easy, I dont knock it as its a very simple way to get you on the Ham bands.

Just sign up and get your licence.

Everytime I try and take the tests it says "Category Invalid" and I get a zero.

Crazy

Does anyone else have this problem?
