 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: Following negotiations with the RSGB to minimise the impact on radio amateurs, Ofcom has announced that it will temporarily authorise up to four 25kHz channels, between 144.000MHz and 144.100MHz, for the period 22 July to 4 August 2014, to support the operation of the Commonwealth Games. The frequencies to be used specifically exclude 144.050MHz (CW Calling Frequency).

Usage of this spectrum by Commonwealth Games users will be in the vicinity of Glasgow games venues and will be limited to handheld equipment operating on a maximum of 5W ERP. Ofcom emphasises that use of Primary Amateur spectrum is only for the specified time period and does not constitute a change of usage.

Ofcom are aware of the very short notice and will authorise this usage on a “non-interference, non-protection basis”. Amateurs in the Glasgow area are requested to avoid these frequencies until 4th August”.
