About amateur radio operator vk3nro and webmaster

Sketch of VK3NRO

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 discussed the Foundation License 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 License class from Amateur Radio Victoria and sitting their examinations including the * Practical Assessment.

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

My standard license study included attending the standard license 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.

Ron VK2DQ from the Radio and Electronics School has uploaded his Foundation License training course to YouTube.

It may be found here: https://www.youtube.com/user/ronwber/videos

There is training for both the Foundation License Practical Assessment and Foundation License Theory Assessment.

I highly recommend buying his software drills to test your learning.

See the Radio and Electronics School website for details.

There are also links on the Radio and Electronics School website to the iOS and Android versions of his Foundation License training.
