Good luck with the event.  I'm busy during the day, but usually head out in the evening if possible on a Sat.

Do you have a date for your Foundation exam yet?  I'm waiting for my local radio club to get the paperwork through from the RSGB to hold exams again so I can sit mine.  I completed the Essex Ham course a few weeks a go now and am champing at the bit to take the test.

Best wishes
Al

Hi Alan, yes the tests are available online still, but I prefer the classroom environment for an exam. I've just heard that the radio club has heard from the RSGB and they are now on the way to being able to run tests again. So I hope to be able to say here that my test is booked, shortly follwed by an 'I have passed' message.

You can get an App for phone or tab.
Dyslexic myself so when you do the test read the questions 3 times that is what i did (strange how they change lol).
Don't panic you will have more than enough time and you can mark any questions you are not sure on and then go back to them later plenty of time.
