Obtaining an amateur radio licence is easy with the Foundation entry level accreditation. There is no morse code to learn, you don't need technical qualifications and there are no age limits.

The St George Amateur Radio Society (SGARS) will be holding weekend amateur radio licence training courses and assessments throughout 2020, within the St George/Sutherland Shire.

Weekend licence training courses and assessments have been scheduled for the following dates;
