Exam’s update

Amateur Radio

Current News

AMC Remote Exams
Just a reminder: with the Covid-19 shut-downs, AMC are still conducting exams. 

Despite news reports to the contrary, the AMC has been offering remote and special assessments in this manner since well before the pandemic hit.  

AMC offers remote Assessments.  The process has been made as simple as possible but must ensure that the security and integrity of the system remains intact.

If you wish to undertake an exam contact the AMC – their contact details can be found on their website

So, go on, get studying either to enter the hobby or to gain extra privileges and responsibilities.  Once successful, the current situation has not affected the allocation and authorisation of call signs, that’s very much business as usual!

Examination Fee Schedule – 2020

Randall has Echolink is up and running VK3RMW 145.350 MHz 97.4 CTCSS

We are small club who believes in helping our fellow hams get on the air and to stay on the air.

 Our group aim is to have fun with the hobby, we don’t have time to sit around talking about how good we are like many Amateurs do!

“We just get up and do it!”

Words of Wisdom:

 Never argue with an idiot!

If you start with an idiot you will finish with a idiot, so what is the point?

The biggest problem with Ham’s today is, there are too many ex CB’ers that know every thing, get a two letter call to prove it.
