Radio Amateur Exam

Would you like to become a radio amateur? the West Rand Amateur Radio club is offering a programme to assist interested individuals, to obtain a Radio Amateur Licence enabling them to join the worldwide family of “Radio Hams“. To operate a radio transceiver, on approved bands, radio amateurs need to write an ICASA statutory exam which covers the basic theory associated with Radio and Propagation of Radio Waves, the Regulations and Operating Practice pertaining to this. The Radio Amateur’s Examinations are conducted twice annually, in May (1st Semester) and October (2nd Semester). 

The West Rand Amateur Radio Club programme commences on 22nd January 2019 with an introduction to the hobby, and registration process for those who decide to participate. Classes will be held weekly, on Tuesday evenings commencing at 18:30 hrs, with additional classes for those requiring further assistance.  On confirmation of passing the ICASA exam, candidates will receive their Call Sign, used for worldwide communication, opening a new, stimulating and rewarding chapter in their lives. 

For further information, please contact Stephen Reynolds, RAE Manager on zs6sjr@gmail.com or 082 566 5900 or via the club web site. All enquiries welcome.  Study aids and more information on the RAE exam can be obtained from the SARL website at http://www.sarl.org.za/public/licences/rae.asp

 

These generic QSL cards are available to SARL members only. They can be purchased in batches of 100 only. The cost is R75.00 per 100.
