The IRTS report that just 17 candidates sat the radio amateurs exam in May
There is only a single HAREC compatible licence class which requires a pass in a 60 question multiple choice exam. Unlike the UK there are no practical assessments.
Of the seventeen candidates who sat the exam, 15 were successful. This is the highest number that passed an examination since IRTS took over responsibility for the examination.
