Customer feedback

Chris Brion said: "I was very impressed with your LRC course that I attended last November. There was a lot of ground to cover and the two day option with prior home study requires self discipline. But the pre-course internet training programme was excellently set out and anyone who follows it conscientiously should pass. As you know, the pass rate on our course was 100%. I was also impressed with your obvious knowledge and experience on the technical side and have recommended you to a number of people interested in fitting HF equipment in their boats. I have just completed installing my amateur station on our boat and will look out for you. 73 Chris Brion G4BTN"
