Whilst working Ricky MW6GWR/P earlier, we were discussing ways of improving his footprint on 160m & I asked him about his plans to progress to the UK intermediate licence which would increase his power limit significantly. While Ricky does aim to progress, he is geographically remote from most clubs being on the west coast of North Wales. Of course, learning CW would be beneficial, but for most, it is progression through the licence categories that comes first.
Being a GB2RS newsreader I am aware that certain clubs do provide “distance learning” courses for the full licence, but cannot remember of any that do the same for the intermediate licence. Of course, any practical assessments must be done in person, but is anyone here aware of a suitable intermediate course that would not involve significant amounts of travel for those away from major conurbations?
Sorry if this is a little OT but I am sure any info would be appreciated many.
Thanks & 73,
