The point of reference books is kind of that in five years, you can find an answer, but I accept that nowadays, there's less point. I must admit I kept my RYA marine band text book. Like you I'll probably not need it, but I did actually use it for something last week! The callsign works brilliantly - well worth the twenty quid! I got a notification from DVLA that G14 RMT was available for cars, and as I work a lot in Northern Ireland, where I am GI4RMT - neat.

The body of knowledge for ham radio (and almost if not all areas of study) is updated daily, fully searchable, often in video format and free on the Internet. I no more need the full licence manual than I need a collection of encyclopaedias to find the capital of a city.

Those of you who passed the full, how long until you saw it available to be applied for on the Ofcom website?

I passed on a Wednesday and got my cert from the RSGB on the Saturday, you need the cert for your candidate number, so not long. I wanted (and got) a specific call though and that took 'til Friday the next week. It took OFCOM 48 hours to reply to emails so a bit slower, but worth the £20, paid online, and when payment went through there it was on my OFCOM page within a minute or so.
The perfect face for radio.

I passed my full on Friday and there's still no details on the Ofcom website - it's a long wait!

I can't remember to be certain, but I'm sure that when I did my Intermediate, that it was pretty quickly that it was shown as available to be applied for on the Ofcom website.

It took about 4 business days or so for my Full pass to show on the Ofcom website.
