….. Five new “home grown” licenced radio amateurs ! …..

Sheffield & District Wireless Society congratulates its first successful candidates in the Amateur Radio Foundation Licence examination, held on 15th April 2015, at the club premises (which is a registered examination centre). The five candidates were taught by Krystyna, 2E0KSH, who was perhaps more nervous than the they were as the five lads were her very first students! None of them, Sean, Marcus, Steve, Andrew and Paul, need have feared the outcome as the five passed with flying colours. Krystyna planned and executed the course and arranged both the practical and written examinations. Over the tuition period she was assisted by David G8EQD, David M5DWI, Andrew G0HSA and Peter G3PHO. Thanks must also go to Steve G0EAK and Pete M6EEZ for taking on the job of inviligators at the written examination on the night.

The Society hopes they will have a long and happy life as transmitting radio amateurs… good DX and happy contesting to them all!

SDWS is the second major club within the city boundary to offer courses leading to the amateur radio licence.
