Congratulations to Sue on passing her Foundation (US Technician) Radio Amateurs Examination!

Welcome to Amateur Radio Sue from all of us at ANZEL

Updated 20th, February, 2023

Congratulations to Sue on passing her Foundation level amateur radio examination! (Foundation is the equivalent level of an American Technician operator) She took the exam on Sunday, 12th February 2023, and got 25 questions correct out of 26. She got her callsign on Thursday, 16th February 2023, and she decided to go with MW7FDI as her callsign. The reason she picked FDI as her suffix is because it stands for “Finally Did It”. With the passing of her exam, a new Ham-ily has been created! This comprises of Declan 2W0KYH, Dave GW8SZL, and Sue MW7FDI.

Declan MW6SZL is now 2W0KYH (The Kind Young Ham)

Congratulations to Declan on his License Upgrade from everybody at ANZEL

Declan, who lives in Newport, South Wales, passed his Foundation exam when he was just nine years old.

At the beginning of August 2020 when he was 12, he passed the Intermediate exam via remote invigilation. He wore his ‘lucky tie’ for both exams and is aiming for his Full licence next.

Declan chose his new Intermediate call sign to represent ‘Kind Young Ham’ – what a great idea!
