I can see there are many posts regarding going through the foundation course to exam so I won't bark too much. Just putting this down to say Hi as this is my first post.

I come from the AM/FM/SSB background in 79-82 and with a gap of 38 years decided to get my foundation license. I'm currently a third of the way through Essex Hams excellent free tutorial.

Because its been so long and has its differences to CB I just had an Anytone 878 PLus delivered this morning so that I can at least hear what's going on with analog. If I hadn't come across a youtube video of someone DXing I wouldn't be here. Its that hash sound. Its drawn me back in....

Bark as much as you like mate Smile

Anyone pursuing their radio interests further should be justly proud of themselves, especially if after such a long break.
I agree, the Essex Ham course is fantastic, (took it myself), and the army of volunteers making it all possible in these uncertain times deserve a massive applause. 

Best of luck with your studies and exam.
(I nervously await my exam in the coming days.)


All the best,
Victor

There will be a nod in your direction for that tipple Alan, whatever day is good for you Smile

I shouldn't worry to much mate, Essex Ham were pretty overwhelmed with this course. There was a problem with the Schoology website so some didn't receive module updates. I luckily did even though the site reported my progress as incomplete, Pete reassured all of us affected. However some were bumped forward to the next course currently running.
Hopefully you'll hear soon, if not then drop them a line.

All the best,
Victor

Thanks, much appreciated.

Well worth doing any mock exams available to you.

Don't forget, the RSGB also have some mock exams on their site too. Link below :-

Thanks for the great feedback about our course. Glad to hear you've found it useful. 

Alan - without knowing your full name or email address, I can't check whether you're on the course, but you should have received an automatic email from us (check your spam) on the day you confirmed the course date - drop us an email via hamtrain.co.uk if you want us to check. Course details will be sent on the afternoon of the 3rd.

Pete

Pete (Essex Ham)
Just found a contact email in my junk sent Wednesday.
Thanks for the nudge to look in there.

Well done Pete and all at Essex Ham 👍


Alan, glad you found your email contact. Isn't that junk box on email a pain sometimes! Very Happy
I hope you enjoy the course, I know I really did and can't sing their praises enough. Pete is extremely helpful and a very patient guy with a fantastic sense of humour. 

The very best of luck with it all and the same goes to anyone considering taking their first steps into becoming a Radio Amateur.


All the best,
Victor

Thanks Victor and yes it is a pain in the R's.
Out this morning but will be checking all mailboxes when i get back home.
I might not even be on the list for this month if they are that busy.
And he will need a sense of humour with my short term memory and dyslexia lol.
