Amateur Radio Foundation Licence

Last weekend I attended a two day amateur radio foundation licence training course at the Loughton & Epping Forest Amateur Radio Society (LEFARS) which culminated in an exam. The instructors made everything clear and easy to understand and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. After completing the exam I was told my 'indicative' mark suggested that I had passed, but today I received my official certificate from the Radio Society of Great Britain.

This certificate allows me to apply for a call sign from Ofcom that verifies I can transmit on the amateur radio frequencies authorised by my license. Just one problem. Ofcom's site is down for maintenance ALL WEEKEND. How a maintenance window spanning over 48 hours is deemed acceptable I have no idea, but I guess I will just have to be patient...
