Last night the Swansea Radio Society had it’s first meeting.
By vote of the members, we spend this first meeting by kick starting our first foundation licence course. On the night we had 10 students sign up the for the course, and we tackled the first set of practical assessments:
- Tuning a dipole in the 2m band for lowest SWR
- Safely connecting a radio to a power supply and antenna
- Operating the controls of a VHF radio
The course was met with great enthusiasm, and we hope to continue the foundation practicals over the next few weeks.
