Amateur Radio Foundation Licence Training January 2020

Hi All,

Sorry about the very late notice, but anyone from North Wales Tech who wishes to gain their first (Foundation) Amateur Radio Licence we are here to help.

Dragon Amateur Radio Club are running a Foundation Licence course starting this coming Monday 6th January, 18:00 - 19:00 at Ebeneezer Chapel hall, Lon Foel Graig, Llanfairpwll, LL61 5RX.

The course will run on the following Monday evenings 18:00 - 19:00:

17/02 EXAM at 17:30

The remainder of the course will be held on a couple of weekend days (date to be confirmed and dependant on where we can find that does not cost).

The course is free, but there is a charge of £27.50 for the exam which is administered by the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) on behalf of the UK Government telecommunications agency OFCOM.

We also ask all students to purchase the course book ‘The Foundation Licence Manual’ for £4.99 plus postage. This can be purchased at:

The course combines a mixture of traditional teaching, reading at home and practice papers via email, plus simple operating practical assessments.

Interested see you on the 6th or please do email me at

We shall be organising another Foundation Course in the middle of 2020 and also offering an Intermediate Course in March and likely late 2020.

So if you are interested in making, communicating via voice, morse, digital modes, via satellite, the International Space Station and the moon and the electromagnetic spectrum……. get yourself a licence!
