Brickworks was originally launched in early 2020 under the name of the ‘Beyond Exams Club Scheme’. It is a scheme run by local amateur radio clubs that have committed to helping all licensed amateur radio operators discover what the hobby has to offer.

When Covid struck, clubs were no long able to meet in person and it was harder to help radio amateurs to work through the Club Scheme activities.

Now life is opening up again, we’re delighted that Brickworks – as it will now be called – is being relaunched.
