To help more people into the hobby a novice licence has been introduced into the UK. The entry requiremens for this are less than the full licence which is also available. This makes the novice licence an ideal start, but even so it is still necessary to have a basic understanding of the subject and to complete a course and pass the Novice Radio Amateurs Examination.
This book covers the basic syllabus for the examination, and it is designed to supplement the associated course. It also provides a basic introduction into amateur radio and the technology behind it for anyone wanted to learn more. Topics included in the book cover basic electronics, radio receivers, transmitters, operation practices and much more.
