On the weekend of 23rd and 24th January myself and Cadet Maw attended a UHF/VHF Radio Course at Wing HQ.

There were around 20 other Cadets and Staff in attendance from South and West Yorkshire Wing to take part in the course.

The aim of the course was to reach competency in different aspects of Radio, we learnt how to send and receive messages correctly, how to use call signs and the importance of getting these right and the phonetic alphabet. The course was both classroom and practical activities which made it really interesting and fun.

At the end of the course we took an exam which we all passed and received the Bronze Communicator Badge which I am very proud of and I look forward to starting on my Silver badge.

It was a really enjoyable course and it was also good to meet other cadets and make new friends. I would definitely recommend this course!
