Welcome to the SRESU Training Pages.
Looking for the Your Entry into Amateur Radio book? >>> If you wish to purchase the WIA Foundation Training book “Your Entry into Amateur Radio” from the SRESU, please use the contact us pages on this website. This is an excellent resource book for leaders who would like to know a little more about amateur radio so they may brief their scouts prior to JOTA.
The book should be regarded as essential reading for all people intending to undertake the Amateur Operators Certificate of Proficiency (Foundation) assessment
Ron VK2DQ and his team from the Radio Electronics School are old friends of scouting. The operators of the Radio and Electronics School have now placed a number of Foundation License tutorials onthe RES web page. We commend the entire team from the RES for making these available to the Scouts. The Tutorials may be found at:
http://www.radioelectronicschool.net/index.php?cmd=foundation If you do find these valuable, and you wish to extend your studies, contact the RES directly.
The SRESU supports Ron when he makes the good point that the tutorial is not intended to replace the foundation license manual. The SRESU training team feel that just doing the tutorials will not provide all the hands on skills that could be obtained when attending a training course run by your local radio club (including the SRESU). In saying the above, we see these tutorials as very useful for people who may find reading the foundation manual difficult for a number of reasons. These tutorials may also be useful for remote scouts who would like to attend a course but their location makes this a challenge. Once the content is mastered, an assessment may be arranged. Please contact the SRESU for more details.
