Operating for Visitors

I hold an Overseas Amateur Radio Licence. Can I operate in the UK? CEPT

Ofcom (the UK Regulator) may authorise amateurs to operate in the UK if the country that issued the overseas amateur radio licence is either:-

  • A signatory to CEPT T/R 61-01 (for a visit up to three months)
  • A signatory to CEPT T/R 61-02 (for a Reciprocal Licence)
  • Has a bilateral agreement with the UK for the mutual recognition of amateur radio licences
