If you enjoyed JOTA, this is the next step. The Foundation amateur radio course will provide an introduction to the hobby of amateur radio. The course included the basic theory and practical skills required to safely assemble and operate amateur radio equipment. 

The emphasis of the training is to assist those wanting to enjoy Amateur Radio, to have the knowledge and skills to demonstrate a practical ability to put together a station from commercial equipment, and operate it safely, competently and without causing interference to other users of the radio spectrum.

The aim of the Foundation Licence is to be a stepping stone or entry point, giving you a real taste of Amateur Radio and the fun it provides.

In summary you will learn the how Amateur Radio relates to other users of the radio spectrum, licence conditions, technical basics of electricity and electronics, transmitters, receivers, feedlines and antennas, propagation, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and electromagnetic radiation (EMR).
