 Licence Revalidation

                                                Courtesy RSGB | March 14, 2014

Although the current amateur radio licence is known as a “licence for life”, all radio amateurs are required to revalidate their licence at least every five years. The process to do this requires every licence holder to contact Ofcom to confirm or update the details on the licence database. This process has been underway for some time and to date some 60 percent of licences have been successfully revalidated.

The quickest way to revalidate is to do so online via the Ofcom website, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . This can be done at any time. If you need assistance in the process, Ofcom staff are available to help, but please be patient during times of heavy workload.

alex: Guys,

Have you vhf 'buffs' seen this Ofcom statement:

1.7 As demand for both operational and potential future services in 
the short to medium term is likely to be low we are also proposing to 
permit temporary access to 1 MHz of this spectrum (146 to 147 MHz) for 
Amateur Radio use, until such a time as it is needed by Business Radio 
or other services. Should additional spectrum be needed to meet 
operational requirements, we will remove the temporary allocation. 
Amateur Radio use of this frequency will be on a non-protection/ non-
interference basis and will be subject to some geographical 
restrictions to ensure that there is no interference to neighbouring 
countries. We propose that the authorisation will be implemented by an 
individual Notice of Variation (NoV) to the Amateur Radio licence.

It will be interesting to see how much it actually gets used.
Lets all hope it get used in a responsible manner!
