UK Amateur Licence Review

UK amateur licence reviewOfcom intends to review and update the terms and conditions of the UK amateur radio licence

The current form of the licence has been around for several years and Ofcom is keen to ensure that it continues to meet its regulatory needs.

A consultation paper Updating the Amateur Radio Licence (35-page/264KB PDF) has now been issued, and all amateurs are encouraged to read it carefully and respond to Ofcom by 20 October 2014.

The RSGB has put together a brief commentary to help illustrate some of the more significant changes proposed, and this should be read in conjunction with the consultation document.

Additionally, we have opened a discussion forum in which any amateur can participate.

The RSGB will use contributions to the forum to inform its response to Ofcom.
