Types of licences
What type of licence do I need?
Contact an independent radio engineer or certifier who will assist you with the type of licence you need.
Licences are granted according to the type of service that is required. The type of service selected also determines the frequency bands available. See below for a list of licence types, click on any of the types for further information.
The types of services are:
- Citizen Band – HF services and UHF Personal Radio Service
- Land mobile
- Meteorological aids
- MF / HF Services
It is important to submit the licence application for the correct category. The applicant may be liable to pay the engineering fees if the licence is engineered for the wrong type of service due to incorrect or partial information on the application.
Managed spectrum park
The 2.5 GHz Managed Spectrum Park is designed to facilitate local and regional wireless services, and seeks to encourage a flexible, cooperative, low cost and, as far as possible, self-managed approach to allocation and use of the radio spectrum resource.
It may be possible to grant a licence in other services for a frequency or frequency band that is not covered by the categories listed above. For such instances an approach should be made to the Radio Spectrum Planning section.
