Australian Foundation Manual Supplement
Australia’s WIA has released a free PDF supplement to the Foundation training manual following the removal of unnecessary restrictions from the licence
On September 12 this year the communications regulator, ACMA, announced wide-ranging amendments to the regulatory conditions for the amateur radio Foundation licence.
The amendments increase the flexibility, utility, and relevance of the Foundation licence by removing unnecessary restrictions, while balancing the risk of interference to other radio spectrum users.
Foundation holders are now permitted to:
– Supervise an unlicenced person on-air
– Remotely operate their station from a Smartphone
– Use transmitters they have built themselves
– Use all digital modes
