In June the WIA sought the response of the amateur radio community in relation to the draft WIA Licence Condition Determination (LCD) submission to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
Even though the survey was only open for two weeks there were over 500 responses from around Australia.
Total survey respondents: 501 (3.5% of licenced amateurs in VK)
Support for General Principles – 96%
Support for Foundation Licence Conditions change – 83%
Support for Standard Licence Conditions change – 88%
Support for Advanced Licence Conditions change – 95%
Main respondent group from Advanced licenced amateurs - 74%
Good representation and correlation with licence numbers in all VK call areas
382 people left their email address for further information about the submission
There were hundreds of supporting comments to each of the five submission questions and these were summarised in the summary document.
This document has been sent to those people who left their email address and is available at the link below.
The clear recommendation is to proceed and finalise the submission and send to the ACMA ASAP.
The WIA Board and Spectrum Strategy Committee thanks everyone who participated in the process.
