Official News from AMC re the processing delays due to overwhelming callsign demand.

Processing time changes – Amateur Radio callsigns

Due to the recently announced changes to the callsign template and the large amount of callsign variations received, please be advised that the ACMA have now granted an extension in processing times as follows:

Until 31 October 2020, the AMC Amateur Radio Office will process all callsign applications within 45 business days (previously 15 business days).
We would request that unless the matter is urgent, please email AMC rather than telephoning.

This will allow the Amateur Radio Office team to maintain all other services within the expected 15 business days.

Updates to the Publicly Available Callsigns Database

We are also working with our IT Department to update the ‘Publicly Available Callsigns Database’ to match the new callsign template. We apologise in advance for any delays experienced due to this, but we will have it rectified as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this very busy time.
