Update on licence training

New version of both the Foundation and Intermediate syllabus have been released which will take effect from 1st June 2009.

Addition material will be added to both Foundation and Intermediate.

Foundation will additionally cover Conductors and Insulators but the major change is to Intermediate. It will now cover some material previously in Advanced, such as Alternating Currents and Voltages. This will increase the technical level of Intermediate.

The new syllabus will not apply until 1st June 2009 so any exams held before then will still use the current syllabus.

Tynwald Day

The Society will be operating a radio station on Tynwald Day using the callsign GT3FLH. It will be located outside the "Old School" next to St. John's Methodist Church (just look for the Tower and Beam).
We do need your help to operate all day so why not come along and play radio.
