Getting your ‘ham’ licence
It has never been easier to get your amateur licence than it is in 2007. For starters the once mandatory requirement to learn Morse code at a rate of 5 words per minute has been abolished. Secondly the entire test is multi-choice and you can download all the questions, exam sheets and study guides to prepare well in advance of your exam.
We hold exams at our Branch clubrooms on demand and you can take as long as you need to complete the 60 question exam Get 40 questions correct and we pass you on the spot! There are members at the Branch only to happy to help you prepare for your exam so you are certainly not alone as you work towards your goal of getting your licence.
