Customer feedback

Terry Standing said: "An excellent LRC course, thank you Yachtcom. The on-line training really helped me prepare for the course not having any previous experience with MF or HF radio, not to mention Inmarsat. The quizes and mock examine are extremely useful once you have completed each exercise. I completed the 4 day course and found it excellent, Bob's knowledge and experience is second to none and the four day course gives you all the time available to absorbe as much as you can from him. I felt well prepared for the exaime, which was comprehensive and well structured by the external examiner. The facilities at Yachtcom are ideal, the 1st floor radio room is very good for practical hands on with all radio equipment and Bob kindly arrives early each day so you can go over things again if you need too. Thank you Bob and Claire. :D"
