Amateur Radio Licence Training We Provide
-Assessments for Standard, Advanced & Regulations
The Foundation licence is a quick way to get on the air for those without any previous experience in radio or electronics. The club runs training sessions for this licence quarterly subject to demand. Each session requires a single weekend which includes an exam on Sunday afternoon. Successful candidates will be assisted to apply for their licence immediately. Details of this licence can be found on the WIA web site under “Become a Radio Amateur”.

The club in the past offered a limited number of scholarships valued at up to $350 to enable young Australian citizens under 25 not in full-time employment to obtain their first licence and be supplied with a radio at no cost. Benefits include a free course at Rose Bay or Dural, a Licence Application fee, 1st year’s licence paid, VHF/UHF handheld and free 1st-year membership of our society. Funding was generously provided by the sale of radio equipment from the estate of the late Colin Marks, VK2LV and a generous donation from the Estate of the Late Tom E. King VK2ATJ.
Donations would be welcome to restart this program.
Ron Bertrand, VK2DQ, the presenter of the Gladesville Video Tape Course and a long-time Amateur Radio Instructor, runs a theory classes via his RES web site. For details of the classes and free Foundation tutorials, visit the website.
