73 de M0CCC📻 We’re making amateur radio fit for the future.
Today we are updating the amateur radio licensing framework, to continue to support amateur radio users and offer them greater operating freedoms.
Our changes include:
-Streamlining the licensing process
-Increasing the maximum amount of power radio amateurs can use
-Modernising our call sign policy – including making it simpler for the community to use special event call signs
These changes will not take immediate effect and will be phased in over a two-year period.

Snippets of what I've seen so far or the proposals. Power - foundation 25 watts. Intermediate 100 watts, full 1000 watts pep on primary bands Internet remote control for all licences. Single licence- full would have to surrender any foundation and/or Intermediate calls. No NoV for some beacons, gateways, repeaters under 5 watts on basis of no interference.
Interesting to note under definitions - m "Gateway" means radio equipment that transmits and receives on a single frequency for the purpose of connecting to other non-amateur networks. ....
