Amateur Radio to be free in VK – But what’s the catch?

The Australian Communications and Media Authority – @acmadotgov have released their review on the regulatory arrangements that authorise the operation of non-assigned amateur stations.

The objective of our review is to identify the best licensing mechanism that reduces regulatory burden and minimises costs for licensees, while also preserving the current operational utility for licensees.

A new proposal to make amateur radio operators fall under a class license has been proposed. In this video I go over those changes. What is your view? Please let me know in the comments below, and don’t forget to make a submission to the ACMA.
