The Bath and District Amateur Radio Club. 


The final Bath Based Advanced Distance Learning course which starts on Friday 1 February 2019, is now full. Following news in both Practical Wireless and RadCom the final places were filled on Friday 14 December. Whilst we hate turning people away, there is a limit to how much time our volunteer tutors can devote to the course so we just cannot take any more. Please do not ask to be ‘squeezed in’!


A classroom course will run in parallel on Wednesday evenings from 30 January at the Scout HQ in Grove Street, Bath. There are still places on the classroom course.


Please note that these will be our last amateur radio courses for some time due to the work required to implement the changes to the syllabus and the retirement of a number of our distance learning tutors. Exams under the current syllabus are available until the end of September 19 and re-sits until the end of November 19. After that, all examinations will be against the new syllabus.

We expect to be closed down for at least 6 months, maybe a year. We will not know for sure until we finish the current round of courses and can study the syllabus changes and assess what needs to be done.


If anyone is looking to upgrade from Intermediate to Full, and can attend classes in Bath, please use the Contact Us option on this website.
