Ofcom have now made a decision on changes to the Amateur radio licencing conditions:

GOOD NEWS: Amateur operators to get 470Khz and 5MHz as standard without the need for an N.O.V.


BAD NEWS: Relaxation of how often callsigns are to be given! - Relaxing the need to identify your station will simply encourage illegal use of the bands and make Amateur Radio less distinctive from CB radio.
