The goal is to use your skill and experience to make contacts near and far, using your knowledge to operate dedicated amateur radio equipment in conjunction with the appropriate antennas. Not to be confused with Citizen’s Band (CB) radio, Amateur Radio transmission requires being licensed via OFCOM, who allocate you a callsign. Gaining a callsign requires a licence, which necessitates training and the passing of an exam. Fort Purbrook Amateur Radio Club is admirably placed to help you achieve the best from this hobby, offering both technical training, a local examination venue and ongoing support if you become a club member.
