You cannot just start transmitting in the Netherlands. To be allowed to broadcast as a radio amateur you have to learn a lot of theory. In the underlying pages (see above under the menu) I will record some of what I am studying.
When I have finished the theory I will take an exam for the N (Novice) certificate. With that certificate one can call oneself a qualified radio amateur and request a registration with the Telecom Agency of the government.
In the VERON exam textbook, the theory is divided into the following chapters:
- Frequency, voltage and current
- Power source, electrical safety
- Power supply and parts
- Functions in receiver and transmitter
- The transmitter
- Antenna, coil and capacitor
- Co-operation between coil and capacitor
- Measuring instruments and their application
- Transistors and their application
- Frequency generation and filtering
- Faults, prevention and rectification
- Rules of conduct and regulations
