    Ofcom today announced its conclusions in the reform of amateur radio licensing which is intended to reduce the administrative burden on the UK's 63,000 amateur radio users.

    Ofcom has decided to:

    • issue amateur radio licences which will remain valid for life as long as the licence details remain correct or until the licence is revoked by Ofcom or surrendered by the licensee;

    • require licensees to confirm their licence details at least once every five years;

    • provide an online licensing service as an alternative to the postal service;

    • issue electronic licences to users of the online licensing service;
    and

    • continue to make paper licences available, subject to an administrative charge.
