Licence Training and Exams at the Exeter Amateur Radio Society
Exeter amateur radio club (EARS) is fully accredited to offer training and assistance to all prospective radio amateurs wishing to gain UK licenses.
There are currently three levels of license:
Each license must be gained in order of progression, the first two levels have practical elements, which are assessed on site by the training team. The 'Full' license is based on a candidate's theoretical knowledge of the relevant subject matter.
Where & When?
EARS meets every other Wednesday at the ‘America’s Hall’ De La Rue Way, Pinhoe, Exeter from approx 18:00 hrs to 2100 hrs (ish) . Members also meet socially on a Tuesday morning at 'Bills Cafe' just off Gandy Street in the precinct of Exeter shopping centre.
As club rules stand at the moment, training is only offered to those who are EARS members - membership for adults is currently £30 a year, under 18's £10* (EARS is affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB)).
So, as a club member, the training is FREE!
As the club training team develops the delivery of the training packages further nominal charges may well be levied for training materials, consumables etc. You would also be liable to pay for the exam (ALL members of the EARS Training Team are volunteers, taking no payment for their activities with the Training Team).
*(Note: Acceptance of members under the age of 18 is entirely at the discretion of the EARS Club Committee, under 16's must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times unless otherwise agreed.)
Prospective Candidates - FURTHER ACTIONS
Foundation License Applicants:
Intermediate License Applicants:
Full License Applicants:
Overseas Visitors - Non UK License Holders.
Please check with your licensing issuing authority AND the Radio Society of Great Britain to ensure that you are licensed to operate while you are here in the UK.
As a general rule of thumb, unless you hold the equivalent of the UK FULL license the it is doubtful that you will be allowed to operate, again it is best if you double check it might be that the UK operates a reciprocal licensing agreement with your country or that you are covered by the CEPT agreement.
Exeter Amateur Radio club welcomes requests for assistance from overseas visitors, but at this time we are not able to deliver distance learning packages.
