Many Guides and Scouts around the world enjoy the hobby of amateur radio. There is no age limit to becoming an amateur radio operator.
To operate an amateur radio you need to obtain a license and be registered with the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
With the introduction of a new entry level Foundation License, training courses have been established to help new comers to obtain their amateur radio license.
Anyone can start to participate in the exciting hobby of Amateur Radio by reading the Foundation License Manual and attending a weekend of training with approved assessors. Manuals are available from SGARS.
Training and assessment is provided by members of The St George Amateur Radio Society (SGARS), who hold a current Working With Children Check.
