Are you interested in gaining your Amateur Radio licence? We have an Amateur Radio Foundation licence course starting on Thursday, 27th September 2018, which will run weekly, at our building in Worksop, for 6 weeks. Please contact Worksop Amateur Radio Society via the contact us page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Two members of Worksop Amateur Radio Society have won National Awards, in Amateur Radio Contesting. Tony (M6KTP) from Sheffield and John (2E0DXK) who is from Chesterfield, have won Awards from the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) for the Leading Foundation and Intermediate Licence holders in the National UK activity contests, being the highest in the league table at the end of the contest Year.
These Amateur Radio Contests take place weekly, and involve member finding and making contact with other Radio Amateurs in the UK and Europe.
Tony (M6KTP) accepting his award from Martin (M0ZMF) Chairman of Worksop Amateur Radio Society. These awards were given out at the RSGB Convention, unfortunately neither Tony or John were able to make that occasion.
Martin says that “its great to see Society members picking up National Awards. Worksop Amateur Radio Society has only been taking part in the UK Activity contests for a few years, but has been quite successful”.
There are three levels of Amateur Radio Licence in the UK currently, these are Foundation, Intermediate and Full. Each Licence requires a Radio Amateur to Study for and take exams.
Both Tony and John received training and took there exams at Worksop Amateur Radio Society.
Following a course held here at G3RCW in Worksop, these people went on to take there Amateur Radio Foundation Licence Exam.
We are very pleased to say that they all passed. Their Licences have now been issued my Ofcom and they have their first call signs.
If you are interested in starting your journey into Amateur Radio, use the contact us option and or come along an visit the club, we look forward to seeing you
In the last couple of weeks we have had nine Foundation candidates pass and go on to get their first Amateur Radio Licence and call sign, its great to hear those candidates on the air.
Since the new year we have been running an Advanced Licence course and its great to be able to report that we now have four new Full Licensees.
As part of the training team, I just like to say that we really enjoy helping members to progress.
