There have been yet more successes today in a recent Foundation Licence Course held at Wythall Radio Club.

Four students, all of whom have been working on our innovative Online Foundation Course, visited us in person yesterday to complete their Practical Assessments.

As part of this they had to learn how to connect up equipment, make basic measurements and then operate real radios, making real contacts. They also had a bit of fun using Morse Code, sending and receiving under guidance.

Under the instruction of WRC’s Training Coordinator Chris G0EYO, ably assisted by Peter G4LWF and Barry M0DGQ, students John Borthwick, Les Emmanuel, Carl Jenkins and Dave Cull all completed the required tasks. As a result, they were all able to sit their Foundation Examination earlier today at Wythall Radio Club.

We are extremely pleased to announce that all four passed the exam and are now awaiting their new M6 callsigns. Well done to you from all the members of Wythall Radio Club!
