Amateur Radio Explained!

The entry level Foundation License continues to be the most popular way of getting into amateur radio.

It is attracting those who have had some previous hobby radio communications interest (CB, 4WD, Scanner Listener) and others who are attracted to ham radio for the first time.

It is an interesting and stimulating hobby enjoyed by millions worldwide. The biggest change with this licence is that it no longer takes about six months of study to get a basic licence.

Gone too is the requirement to pass Morse code tests. The decision to make the move and enter amateur radio is really easy – do something different in 2010, became an active radio amateur.
