Author : John Weir - VK3ZRV

Melbourne's North East Radio Group Inc conducted a Foundation Licence course over the weekend 10 and 11 December for 12 students and of these one left after the first day and of the remaining 11, 9 students passed and two missed out on the theory, of these one missed by one question and one missed by two questions. Arrangements are under way for both these students to sit the theory paper again before Xmas.

The theory instruction was carried out by Fred Swainston with the use of his PowerPoint presentation which was greatly accepted by all present, eg students, assessors, and observers. Fred managed to maintain the interest of all by varying the instruction between both theory and practical training periods. The practical training by assessors, and observers worked very well. All aspects of the practical examination were covered in these sessions.

Greg VK3VT acted as chef and invigilator on the day and provided a very good variety of food for the lunches and this was appreciated by all. Several assessors and observers participated in this event which made the days the success they were. Those present included Michael Owen ( President WIA), Jim Linton (President AR Vic), Jonas VK3VF, Cliff VK3CSL, David VK3THY, and to assessors Craig VK3CMC, Mick VK3CH, Tonga VK3SJ, Peter VK3AUE, John VK3TKH, Alan VK3VD, and Steven VK3TSR.
