Intermediate soon

Postby nay27uk » 08 Jul 2017, 23:12

Hi all just to let you know I should be starting my Intermediate at the LRS at the end of the month however LRS seem to be messing around at the moment when I took my Foundation in April they said the Intermediate would be the end of may but I am still waiting for an actual date. It is now looking like the end of July to the Beginning of August.

I wish they would hurry up and decide as I need my 50W

A breath of fresh air to hear someone who does not want to invoke the M6 100 watt self certification privilege.
Best of luck to you.

Whereas full licence holders never breach power limits. No Siree.

I'm sure you will pass no bother. Good to hear you are looking to advance your knowledge.
Power isn't everything though.

32 years as a Class A, 3 as a B and never once exceeded my power limits on any amateur band.

B Licence for 29 years and A licence for 14 years, and only two licence suspensions for alleged excessive power.

Unlike 11m banders who invoke their own frequency allocation and 100w++ self certification privilege without any terms and conditions at all.

Just sayin'... :crazy:

And yup, best of luck to the OP :thumbup:
