Llandudno rally cancelled

The North Wales Radio Society has been forced to cancel the rally in Llandudno it had planned for November this year. A spokesman for the society said: “It is with the deepest regrets that after 20 years, this very successful rally will close for 2006. We would like to thank all traders for their unstinting support and encouragement; thanks also to our many visitors in the UK and overseas for supporting us for the last 20 years.”

A new licence at no cost!!

I have today contacted the Radio Licensing Centre who confirm that any application for a new Amateur Radio Licence submitted after 01-Oct-06 will be issued free of charge (no £15 to pay). This may be good news for new Intermediate licences holders who are about to take their examination. (That’s another pint you owe me!).


Licence for life!

It was expected that Ofcom would bring in the new licence arrangements for 01-Oct-2006, this has now been delayed until 01-Dec-2066 see the Ofcom website -
