Take the Foundation exam in your own home

May 12, 2020 By: Chris G3YHF Category: Club

You can now take the Foundation exam for an amateur radio licence in your own home.

The RSGB (Radio Society of Great Britain) is now offering remote invigilation in people’s own home for online Foundation examinations.  And the practical assessments have also been suspended.

Combined with on-line study, this means you can work towards an amateur radio licence in the safety of your own home.

These changes support the RSGB’s Get on the Air to Care campaign, as recently featured on the BBC.  It encourages the 75,000 radio amateurs across the UK—as part of the 3,000,000 worldwide—to use their radio licences to chat and support each other across the airwaves.
