Advanced Exam Passed


#1

I passed the Advanced exam, but unfortunately M0EYP is not available. M5EYP, M0JJR, M5JJR, M1JJR, M0JIM, M5JIM, M1JIM, M0JRD, M5JRD and M1JRD are not available either. I decided in the end not to choose a callsign and just get whatever callsign Ofcom give me. I got have now got an Advanced callsign of M0HGY. My Intermediate callsign is 2E0EYP and my Foundation callsign is M3EYP.

Thank you all for congratulating me on on passing the Advanced exam. My Dad M1EYP emailed and mentioned that my callsign can be remembered as Mike Zero Hungry Greedy Youth.

Well done Jimmy, a very quick succession to your Full Licence!

I didn’t think it would be long before the cries of ‘learn CW’ came your way, I won’t add to them! Enjoy your new privileges.

I passed the Advanced exam

Congratulations!

Interesting to see how far down the trail the “next available” suffix has got. Back in February when my local club was trying to get a club callsign the trail had reached about M0HCU.

Hi Rick and Colin,

Thank you for congratulating me. Earlier on this year, Advanced callsigns were issued in the “I” series. I was expecting a suffix starting with “I”.

Congratulations Jimmy!

What did you think was the toughest part of the exam? I’m studying slowly… In between practising my morse (even more slowly).

I am also looking at doing the RSGB distance learning course starting in January.

Why is it that when we sit & pass an Advanced Exam we get issued a Full Licence?

Hi Viki, Gerald and Bob,

Thank you for congratulating me.

I did the Advanced course at the Macclesfield and District Radio Society. I found it difficult to start with, but these sessions were useful. I did a lot of Hamtests and QADV which I found useful. I passed all the pass papers on the RSGB and QADV websites. I also passed a mock exam that I did at my local radio club. I do not recommend getting the Amateur Radio Exam Secrets book to use for Advanced studying. I answered all the questions in this book and I got a lot of wrong answers. When I showed these questions to my tutor, I was told that I would not expect these type of questions to be in the exam it self.
