Recognize your talent and experience: the Full Licence
You have worked hard to get your amateur radio licence, and have progressed through to being an Intermediate licence holder. Maybe you are ready now to take on the UK’s utimate amateur radio qualification: the Full licence. A lot of privileges and responsibilities come with an Full licence, not least from the fact that you will be able to transmit at up to 400 watts of power. You will also receive with your Full licence the ability to legally transmit from almost every country in the world. We are not going to pretend that getting an Full licence will be easy. A complex technical exam has to be passed that requires considerable study for success. So you must be prepared to invest a good amount of time and effort in your studies. When studying for the advanced Radio Communications exam there is no requirement to take a formal training course, this is because the examination is entirely theory based, with no practical training element. It is possible to study at home on your own or at a local amateur radio club or at a college; many run courses specifically for the advanced Radio Communications examination. Assessment is by a written examination paper of 62 multiple choice questions each with four possible responses. The examination lasts two hours and it becomes available every two months.
