Foundation course
Designed to get you involved in Amateur Radio and licenced with a callsign as quickly as possible. However before you are allowed to transmit ''live'' it is important that you know a little about radio and radio procedures and regulations and can do it safely and without causing interference to others. The course will take about 10-12 hours instruction after which you will take a 25 question multiple choice examination which is marked on the spot at the exam. centre (Hornsea Radio Club). If successful, and most cadidates are, you will receive a pass certificate and in about 10 days a licence and callsign which will be M6 followed by three letters.
