as there is strong British community here on the forum, let me please ask couple questions regarding the UK licensing.
In 2014 we were making a DXPedition to the Jersey island and for that purpose we applied for three UK licences:
M0ILB - my personal license
M0IKL - personal license of a buddy OK1DOL
M0ICD - club license (M0ILB, M0IKL as founding members)
Somewhen in 2015 there seemed to be a license conditions update and I received an updated license document for M0ILB, but we never received the updated documents for M0IKL or M0ICD.
To the questions:
- Do I understand it correctly that UK amateur radio license is lifetime?
- I heard that OFCOM has to be notified periodicaly that the licensee’s details are still valid, is that true?
- What is the best way to obtaing the missing updated licences? E-mail? Phone call? Online portal?
I am just asking to take the best way as communicating with OFCOM was really bad - 1 month turnaround time for e-mail seemed to be a standard…
Thanks for an advice!
