Distance-learning course a great success
rsgb | May 15, 2015
The Bath-based radio training team have been running classroom courses for over 15 years but in 2011 they started running distance learning courses for the Advanced exam.
The courses have since proved to be far more popular than the team ever envisaged, with hundreds signing up to join.
Not all of those who start complete the course but, so far, the average pass rate is over 85%.
The June exam should see the number of successful candidates pass the 300 mark.
The team are now enrolling students for their next course that will run from July to the December exam.
A £30 deposit is taken to secure a place on the course, and the deposit is refunded to those who sit the exam.
Those that do not finish the course agree to donate their deposit to charity.
In reality, many of the successful students also donate their deposits and the team has so far raised over £4,000 for radio-related good causes.
Recent donations include the Radio Communications Foundation, RAIBC and the British Wireless for the Blind Fund.
Further details can be obtained from Steve Hartley, G0FUW, by emailing G0FUW@tiscali.co.uk.

Silent Key Service – Doug Fisher
A Memorial Service is being held at Penmount Crematorium Truro
Saturday June 20th at 3.00. pm
Many Thanks Ken G0FIC
Doug would be well known by our members who were around back in the 70’s and 80’s. He ran Bryants Van Hire at Lanner for many years and moved away from the County some years back. His call sign escapes me at present but I believe he was a G4.
This evening sees another impromptu gathering at the Countryman Pub at Piece.
All are welcome and reasonably priced good food is available at the pub (ask Bob & Cheryll for confirmation). Tonight there should be a folk music evening too with on most occasions Mr Finbar Fury of the Fureys taking part.
Hope to see you there from around 7.15 onwards usually but no set time.
These are excellent to get you operational on the 2m & 70cm bands and I doubt you will beat these prices anywhere.
