HAM exams in your countries

Hi all,

I would like to collect some information about your countries’ ham exams.
Could you help me please answer the following questions?

  1. Are there any other levels of ham exams in your countries in addition to CEPT-Novice and CEPT?
    (entry level, kid’s level etc.)

  2. Are there any officially published free learning materials that would help in passing the exams?
    (maybe web links)

  3. What type of documents are these?
    (questionnaires with answers, topics with explanatory notes, topics only etc.)

I would be grateful for any information.

The T1 pdf even tells what to answer if you don’t have a clue about any ham stuff.

  1. No
  2. The Czech Telecommunications Office provides a list of exam questions + correct answers at their website: http://www.ctu.cz/cs/download/zkousky-prukaz/amaterske_zkousky_faq_03-2009.pdf
    Unoficial studying material can be found at Czech Radio Club pages http://www.crk.cz and at several personal websites, eg. OK2UEC’s http://ham.smoce.net/
    You can study by yourself or attend one of the courses organized by radio clubs, this is more fun if you have a time for it.

  1. No, not at the moment. There is an entry level license in discussion this will surely take considerable time.

  2. and 3)
    The German telecommunication office provides the questionnaires with answers as PDF-documents, see

Hi Szolt

Will give you an idea what is required at each level, in the UK.

The Foundation Licence requires the holder to use only commercially available equipment.
The Intermediate Licence also requires the holder to have built a radio related project. The holder can then construct and use their own equipment.
The Advanced Licence holder is permitted to use a UK licence in other CEPT countries.
