Radio Licences Granted
Congratulations to Jamie Bickers and Amrit Sidhu- Brar who have gained the Advanced Amateur Radio license. The Advanced exam included some electronic theory at A level standard and enables the licensee to transmit on all amateur bands at full power. Amrit and Jamie have gone through the three stages- Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced. Radio amateurs can communicate by voice, data, satellites and vision. It is hoped that some more of the school’s radio operators will gain their own callsigns next year.
The Radio Club applied for, and has been granted, a special prefix to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. For this month our callsign is MQ0NGS.
