When I passed my Foundation exam, I was encouraged to go straight for the Intermediate and I do see the logic in that, but I wanted to stick with the M7 licence for a while and learn more about the hobby with a 10W restriction. I figured it would encourage me to become a better operator - and I believe it did.

With 10W I've had a lot of fun and managed to work many parts of the world one way or another. After a year though, I am now getting ready to learn more. And when I say learn, I do mean learn - I'm not going to study to 'fluke a pass' - I want to know, not to guess!

So with that in mind, I've got the RSGB Intermediate Licence study book and I'm going to get stuck into it. I'm in no rush and I have no plans to go on any Club Courses - just home-study. When I feel ready, I'll see the relevant people at my local club about sitting the exam.

Good idea Tom, at least you started well. 10W is fun but sometimes it is not enough especially when you want to work really rare DX. I wish you good luck studying. 73, Bas
