The Hervey Bay Amateur Radio Club offers assistance to people who want to get an amateur radio license.
The club is about promoting amateur radio, and our members are happy to assist people with obtaining any of the license grades, foundation, standard or advanced.
If you are starting from scratch, normally the club has copies of the Wireless Institute of Australia text to assist you with obtaining a foundation license. This text can be purchased from the club at cost. The foundation license is not difficult to obtain (unlike some previous amateur radio licenses) – If you are interested please enquire here, or go to the contact us tab.
If you have an amateur radio license and want to upgrade, we can help with that to.
Some of our club members are also assessors and can help you with sitting you exams, right here in Hervey Bay!
The best part is, the training is free and the club does not charge for the examination service, whether you are a member or not. There are however, some fees for the exam and the license. These charges are set by and the money goes to, the Wireless Institute of Australia and the Australian Communication and Media Authority. If you want to find out more, click on the contact us tab.
Not sure which class of license is for you, the WIA has some really good information about amateur radio licenses.
