The Foundation licence is your gateway to amateur radio.

The course and exam that leads to the licence provides you with an exciting introduction to the hobby while requiring an acceptable minimum level of skill and experience.

Your Foundation licence is recognized by the UK communications regulator Ofcom, and entitles you to take a unique callsign which will be used to identify you when you are transmitting.


The Foundation courses will take place locally in a friendly and informal environment and will be conducted by experienced radio amateurs.

Most of the training is practical there is a small amount of radio and electronics theory but only enough for you to appreciate things like using the correct fuses in your equipment and how to build an antenna to get the most out of your radio station.

More information can be found here Getting Started in Amateur Radio

 Congratulations to all Foundation Candidates on passing SEARS Nov/Dec 2016 course  well done to all!
