New amateur radio arrangements have begun.

In December 2023, we announced new arrangements for amateur radio, including the upcoming Radiocommunications (Amateur Stations) Class Licence 2023 (the class licence).Link

The class licence has now commenced.
It means qualified amateur operators can operate foundation, standard or advanced amateur stations without needing to apply for an individual licence or pay any fees.

Alongside the class licence, there are new arrangements for qualifications, examination assessors, call signs and overseas visiting amateurs.

Around 180 accredited assessors are ready to conduct and assess amateur radio examinations.

We have also opened applications to become an accredited assessor.
The Accredited Assessor Guidelines have been updated, providing more detail about the accreditation requirements for applicants from New South Wales.
