Falkland Island ham radio licences

The Falkland Islands communications regulator is requesting that people revalidate their lifetime amateur radio licences

There are two classes of licence, Restricted and Full.

Restricted permits 50 watts output in 144-148 MHz, there has never been any requirement to take any form of exam for this class of licence.

The Full licence permits use of all amateur bands with up to 1,000 watts output. In the Full guidelines document the communications regulator notes:

“Full licences have been issued without evidence of competence for many years.”

“The intention over time is for the Falkland Islands to move towards a qualification-based competency for the full amateur licence”

Licence information, call sign database information, and revalidation guidance are at
