A brief history of my amateur radio study.

My interest in amateur radio was rekindled after listening to the 28th of November 2011 episode of Tech Talk Radio.

They have a page about the Foundation Licence and recommend the Radio and Electronics School to their listening audience.

During 2013 I became a vk3 amateur radio operator by attending the weekend Foundation Licence class from Amateur Radio Victoria and sitting their examinations including the * Practical Assessment.

Two years later in 2015 I upgraded to the Standard Licence having sat my examination at Amateur Radio Victoria.

My standard licence study included attending the standard licence bridging course by Kevin VK3DAP at Amateur Radio Victoria during 2014. The face to face training and opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback was invaluable.

My study also included the purchase of the standard license course DVD from Ron VK2DQ at Radio and Electronics School. I highly recommend their drill software to prepare you for the ** Regulations Assessment and *** Theory Assessment.
