Thanks for replies, with the syllabus change over at the moment Bath have withdrawn any distance support for the foreseeable future, so all other possible avenues are welcome. It will take some time, I know the full licence is a big jump from intermediate, but it’s good to have a challenge ...

Hi everyone, I haven’t posted for a while but wonder if anyone can give me some pointers please? Passed my uk intermediate in May this year (thanks for mastodon encouragement) and would like to take the uk full licence, however, I find the rsgb material a bit ‘dry’ and am considering buying (xmas is coming) the Gordon West manual and audio cd’s to spice things up, does anyone have any views on content? 73 Jeff 2E0KGN

Thanks Digger, I was wondering how the US and UK structures compare, sounds like the three levels are broadly similar. And thanks for the offer of help Matt - greatly appreciated.

Thanks Matt, time seems to go very quickly, so will start preparing now, have found an online video log for the intermediate course (runs for around 8-10hours) by Steve Hartley G0FUW in Bath, each session works through a particular worksheet in the book, I find that kind of instruction works for me, where I’m ‘sort of’ in a class.

Hi everyone and happy new year. 2019 looks interesting for all sorts of reasons including the uk radio exam changes, anyone think it’s better to try and take now, before changes come in, or wait for new syllabus with data modes etc? I’m hoping to take intermediate.
