@Supes Hi Mark, I got your contact from @adam's nams directory. I want to get in on this allstar thing but have zero ham experience and I'm not sure where to start. I have good general technical knowledge (I work in broadcast and AV industry) and will arrange to do my AOCP(S) soon. Hoping you can point me in the right direction.

@ned @adam sure mate happy to help. Lets start with what part of Australia are you in?

@ned ok let me do some research for you. How much do you know about about the licensing process in Australia? Have you looked into it previously?

@Supes I only know what I've looked up on the internet in the past 10mins. Looks like AMC have a list of assessors. I was just going to contact one of them.

@ned so it would be best to go through a local club. First step is to get your foundation licence which is a matter of reading the manual and then attending the club on a weekend. Its very simple. 10 year olds do it. That will give you enough privileges to get on air and get onto Anystar Link. What suburb are you in ill find you some club options :)

@ned so there are 3 levels of licence in Australia. Foundation, Standard and Advanced. You have to start with foundation so you mayaswell start that process

@ned so I am based in Dubai these days but back in Australia fairly often, if there is any way I can help please reach out
