Successful Ham radio Exams confirm Cuban Growth

IARU Region 2 reports on the results of the recent amateur radio exams in Cuba

State Exams, for applicants wishing to join the Federación de Radioaficionados de Cuba (FRC) and for those that are already members but want to upgrade to a higher category with increased privileges, are held twice a year by a call from the Ministry of Communications and FRC.

The exams corresponding to the first semester of 2017 were held last July 22, where 283 out of 312 applicants approved (90.7% approval rate). These results are consistent with the average reached in similar events held last year and confirm the systematic growth in membership in this society, the member of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU),

The learning of CW and the skills acquired in reception and transmission, although not a requirement, continue being the discipline that receives greater attention among applicants for category upgrade, as confirmed by those that did not approve the test.
