Foundation licence “hands on” session

To support those that have recently passed their Foundation licence we are planning a “hands on” session on Sunday 11th September at the 7th Banstead Scouts HQ in Surrey.

Before the pandemic, there was a need to complete a number of practical exercises in order to obtain the Foundation licence. These were very popular and gave students the confidence to get on the air. We are planning to cover these on the day and include :-

  • Station setup
  • VHF radio contact 
  • HF radio contact
  • Morse appreciation
  • Adjusting an aerial for a specific frequency.

As well as the practicals, there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and to operate the club radios.

There will be a £10 fee which will be passed on to the Scouts for the use of their hall for the event.

Please note : All are welcome to these sessions, not just members of the Sutton and Cheam club. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you feel may be interested.

Places are limited, so please contact to reserve your place.
