Farrnborough and District Radio Society


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 learn more about amateur radio. If you are interested in joining one of our courses contact us for details

Our Next courses and Exams are likely to be in December to allow time for us to prepare for the new syllabus. It may be possible by agreement to take exams (without a training course) at an earlier date. Please contact us i
f you are interested.

Current RSGB Costs Foundation £27.50, Intermediate £32.50
