CLYDEBANK Air Cadets have completed an amateur radio course which saw them achieve qualifications and their own call signs.

The course, which is linked to STEM, is run by other youngsters aged between 17 and 19 and involved an exam.

The cadets, based in Beardmore Street, trained for the course on two consecutive Sundays with the one-hour exam taking place on the second date.

Upon completion of the exam, the cadets achieved a civilian qualification and their own call sign which they keep for life and will be able to use to operate radio equipment on their own.

Reiss Cameron, Clydebank cadet warrant officer, said: “The course is a fantastic example of the many civilian qualifications which the cadets can achieve and take with them through later life. It can also be a great thing for a CV.”
