        Hi everyone,

        As you may have heard, the RSGB announced yesterday that from next April, fees for the Foundation exam will rise by 18% – from £27.50 to £32.50. Intermediate will increase by 11% and Full by 12%.

        We’ve created a comparison table here: http://www.essexham.co.uk/train/rsgb-increases-exam-fees

        In a statement released by the RSGB on the 16th of December: “The RSGB Board has reviewed the amateur radio licence exam fees and has decided that there needs to be an increase from 1 April 2023. This is the first time in over ten years that the exam fees have risen and the new fees are still well below the cumulative rate of inflation since 2011.”

        Any thoughts on the increase, and how it may affect students looking to get started or to progress? Let’s get chatting!
