UK Amateur Radio Exam Report Released

Colin Butler

The RSGB Examinations Standards Committee (ESC) report covering 2019 is now available to DOWNLOAD .

The report contains statistics for the both the RSGB amateur radio exams and the Air Cadets Organisation (ACO) exam which Ofcom considers to be equivalent to the RSGB Foundation.

Ofcom has been concerned about the participation of women in amateur radio and STEM disciplines. They requested the ESC to publish figures for the number of women taking the exams. Unfortunately, the results are disappointing with only 9.9% of all exams being taken by women.
