Newton le Willows Amateur Radio Club (MX0NRC / M7DX)



There are currently three levels to the Amateur Radio Exam (details correct as of 02 January 2022) please see the RSGB website for more details.

Level Duration Questions Fee
Foundation 60 mins 26 £27.50
Intermediate 90 mins 46 £32.50
Full 120 mins 58 £37.50

NLWARC endorses Castle Electronics

After using a number of local and not so local Amateur Radio Repair Shops over the years, and having to get radio's re-repaired time and time again after shops have failed to set radio's up properly or have not explained what caused the fault allowing you to 'change your habits' NLWARC have been impressed with the technical knowledge and customer service provided by Geoff at Castle Electronics.

As a bonus Geoff has agreed to provide a 5% discount for all members of NLWARC.
