OFCOM EQUIPMENT AUCTION
It has been brought to our attention that there is an upcoming auction of surplus Ofcom test equipment which may be of interest to Repeater Keepers and Groups. Further information is available here.18-Oct-16
Repeaters, Gateways, Nodes etc are licensed by means of a "Notice of Variation" (NoV) on an individual's amateur radio licence.
A Second NoV will CANCEL the effects of the first Variation in effect removing authorisation to operate the Repeater/Gateway.
Most repeater NoV's expire at the end of March 2017. The RSGB is inviting early renewals for a further 3 year term.
The RSGB are agents of Ofcom for the issue of NoV's and managing of the frequencies and networks.
