It seems a long time ago that Della and John and Jon attended the 2 weekends for the Foundation course and of course, they passed.
John M6ZIY chose this call sign as it compliments his Maritime call of ZIYP4, Della M6DDA she has a radio and maritime background, and took part in the Round the world yacht race 2010.
Regretfully Jon Falconer who took the exam at the same time as John and Della, missed his ticket by 1 point, due to exam nerves.
He has since conquered his fear and has taken his re-sit exam, passing with flying colors on Friday 20 May.
He was as of Sat 28th still waiting for his license, due to a paperwork error.
Well done Jon.
HFDX ARC congratulates all of them and welcomes them to the wonderful world of amateur radio.

In June we will be starting our first Intermediate course on a Tuesday night at Fort Paull, at present we have 7 interested,
including Della and John who are keen to start the Intermediate course with some opting for partial studies at home due to otherworldly commitments (work).
There were 2 others that wish to take the course but are unable to as they work away.
Prospective radio amateurs come from all walks of life from Lorry drivers to Life boatmen, from Engineers to University Lecturers, nurses, postmen, and even shelf stackers at your local supermarket.
This list is endless as the hobby is open to all. “ if you have the interest “ Age isn’t a barrier either, we all complete the same training, so if you are 8 or 80 it doesn’t matter, you are all welcome.
With our training program, we can also help none club members achieve their training needs, as we are able to use Fort Paull’s theatre as a theory training room.
At present, we don’t have an Advanced course in the pipeline. Sorry. G6LNV
