Advanced Level

To get a Full license, you need to pass the Advanced exam.

At present the Radio Society of Harrow does not run an Advanced course or arrange the exam. We are, however, a registered examination centre with the RSGB and can offer examination places at the clubs shack at Lincolnsfields.  For information about booking an Advanced exam, contact the clubs Examination Secretary

There is an excellent distance-learning course run by a group of amateurs in Bath.  It is known as the Bath Based Advanced Distance Learning course or BBADL. Contact Steve Hartley (G0FUW) by email for more details. This is a correspondece course and, although based in Bath, as the name suggests, in fact it operates nationwide.

There are no practical assessments at Advanced level so students can do all their study at home. The exam consists of 62 multiple choice questions  – pass mark is 37 and you are allowed 2 hours to complete the paper. You will be given three documents in the exam

1.  The full licence document so you do NOT need to memorise the regulations
2. Two band plans (14 MHz & 144 MHz)
3  A sheet of mathematical formulae ie no need to memorise any formulae

The exam can either be taken online, or as a paper exam, at an approved examination centre such as ours.
