    I don't see a problem with this except for the inevitable mountain of Official paperwork :cool:

    Where is RSGB then!!?! Shouldn't they lobby to protect spectrum?

    And, shouldn't OFCOM do what they are told to do?

    I'm not sure how your government functions.

    Didn't help to read the news.

    If I look closely in my crystal ball, what is likely to happen is that
    Ofcom sooner or later will be off-loading the callsign and licence
    management to the RSGB, and the fees for callsigns, vanity or not,
    will then not be "small"...

    You took the words right out of my mouth Karl-Arne, I'm with you in thinking that that will definately almost surely be the route Ofcom will take and £$€PLENTY will be the cost of your shiny new vanity callsign here in the UK!

    We have this situation in Sweden, and it was recently only
    narrowly avoided in Denmark.

    Not only the fees for vanity callsigns. I did actually sign this petition and I was immediately presented with a request from the petition company to send them money!!!
    I wish I hadn't bothered to sign it now. Is it some kind of scam?

    A completely uncalled for and snide comment. Very revealing of M6ENP's character.
