When you are a BRATS member you could take as short a time or a long, as you wish before you take your exam but the conditions are :-

  1. You do have to pass the practical side of the exam prior to sitting the exam and these can be achieved at relatively short notice and probably at one session.

  2. You may carry out self study from the web site and the RSGB book on the Foundation licence, but as a member of the BRATS you can take advantage of back up of the club's tutors by email / short sessions at club nights when there are no other activities such as a formal talks / presentations.

You could as a student take as little as 5 weeks to pass your Foundation examination from the date of your Practical Assessments !!

With that in mind enjoy your self studies and contact us if you would like more information on the BRATS.

Important In the Foundation Licence it states

"Where this Licence is a Foundation Licence, the Licensee shall only use commercially available Radio Equipment which satisfies IR 2028. Foundation Licence holders may also use Radio Equipment constructed using commercially available kits which satisfy IR 2028."

In a nut shell this means in our opinion equipment that has been made for the purpose of amateur radio is in the clear but ex-military equipment may not and could require the user to have a higher grade than a Foundation licence for them to legally operate within the terms of their amateur radio licence.
