Licensing - amateur FAQ
From 1 July 2005 there are no annual fees for amateur operators.
These remain individually licensed - see section OA1 of the fee schedule.
Your amateur callsign can be changed by consulting an Amateur ARX (see the list of ARX)
You can search SMART to see what callsigns are in use and what is available.
See information at Amateur Licenses.
