Overview - Amateur Radio Licence

Amateur Radio is a radio communication service for the purpose of self-training, interconnection and technical investigations carried out by amateurs. This will ensure that these activities are conducted by authorised persons interested in radio technique solely with an aim of acquiring knowledge for self and not for pecuniary interest.  According to our Regulations, the Authority may grant an Amateur Radio Licence to an applicant who has passed the radio amateur examination or possesses the requisite qualifications prescribed for the purpose.


As at December 2016, 177 Licences have been issued for Amateur Radio services however, majority are not currently active as majority of the licencees are foreigners who use the facilities for short periods during their stay in the country. The licence is valid for a period of 10 years.
