Training for an amateur radio licence

Are you interested in getting your Amateur Radio Licence?


It is with regret that we at HARS have had to suspend face-to-face training courses in accordance with the Government’s Covid-19 regulations.
However as Training Co-ordinator I am pleased to announce that changes have been put into place by the RSGB in facilitating the opportunity for would-be radio amateurs. These include a listing of all the on-line training courses that be enrolled upon and the link is here
Also all you need to know about the Foundation and Intermediate licences is here
On their Training pages is also information on how the on-line exams work and how to pay for them.
So head over to these resources and make a start on your journey to a licence.
At HARS we are able to help you via this training portal in any queries you might have. Please feel free to contact us.
You might like to register your interest in going for a licence now with us so that when you have it we can help you progress your hobby
Please return soon to see if we have restarted both training and of course our regular meetings.
In the meantime remember to checkout our operating nets on the 80m HF band and on 2m on the local repeaters GB3ZA and GB3VM.
