What is the Advanced (Full) Licence?



This is the highest level of licence that you can obtain. The Advanced (Full) Licence enables you to operate on all the amateur radio bands using the full 400 Watts power allowed.

To gain an Advanced (Full) Licence you must have passed either the Radio Amateurs Examination (RAE) or the Advanced (Full) Licence component of the new licence structure. The Advanced (Full) Radio Communication Examination is more advanced than the Intermediate one and has replaced the old City & Guilds RAE. Again, it covers radio theory and licence conditions but because holding a full licence enables you to use 400 Watts power output to your transmitter, subjects such as Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC), antenna design and safety issues are covered in greater depth.

The licence allows access to all the amateur allocations with full power.

When studying for the Advanced (Full) Licence, there is no requirement to take a formal training course. It is possible to study at home on your own, if you so wish. However, many local amateur radio clubs and societies and technical colleges run courses for the Advanced Licence.
