Busy time for the WIA Exam Service
The month of December before the WIA national office closed for the summer holidays has seen the processing of many assessments and the issue of callsign recommendations.

WIA Vice President, Fred Swainston VK3DAC said: "The good news for those eager to get on air, is that the time taken by both the WIA, and the ACMA which now invoices using its SPECTRA system, has been reduced. In a four week period the WIA Exam Service issued 73 certificates of proficiency, all needing a new callsign, plus 11 more to returning former radio amateurs wanting to resume Amateur Radio with its modern and diverse activities."
He told the WIA Board that during the holiday period further streamlining is planned on the work of our volunteer assessors. More news about the minor, but important changes, is expected to be announced by the WIA within three months.
The WIA office and WIA Exam Service re-opens on Monday January 11.
