Proposed French Amateur Radio Exam Changes and 60m Access

The Directorate General for Enterprise (DGE) intends to make changes to the amateur radio exams and permit the WRC-15 60m allocation

France currently has a single 40 question HAREC amateur radio exam, however, one point is deducted for each wrong answer on the paper.

The good news is this rule is to be scrapped and a wrong answer will simply count as nil points.

It seems DGE also plans to introduce exam questions covering DSP, Sampling, Nyquist, Convolution, Anti-aliasing, and ADC/DAC.

DR@F additionally report that French radio amateurs will gain access to the WRC-15 60m band 5351.5-5366.5 kHz Secondary with 15 watts EIRP.
