Our congratulations go to Sarin Kulatileka who has recently passed his Foundation level license at the Cray Valley Radio Society (CVRS). He has now been assigned a callsign from Ofcom, the government-approved regulatory and competition authority for broadcasting.

In order to pass the foundation test Sarin was required to complete many presentations and six practicals which included; HF calls, VHF/UHF calls, Morse code and more! This meant he was able to make contact with Amateur Radio enthusiasts in Germany and other parts of the UK during these practical tests.

Sarin and his sister were also joint winners of the Sandell-Whitehead Trophy, awarded during the Foundation course. Sarin was able to grasp and appreciate radio communication concepts including Morse Code, and attained 88% in the Foundation exam.

Sarin is currently taking his Intermediate level licensing exam which involves more advanced concepts including the soldering of components to build a transistor AM Radio from a kit project. We wish him good luck in his next examination.
