Ofcom Radio Licencing

blog post image 960w

In UK not every two-way radio system is license exempt. While some radios are exempt from licensing, many others require license to operate. At OS Comms we guide our customers on their licence requirements. We not only maintain radios, but also manage their licences.
Private two-way radios operate on either UHF or VHF radio frequencies. The issuing authority in UK is the Ofcom. If you run a business concern you must find out if your radios need to be licensed.

Why do you need a license to operate your two-way radio?
A business concern must apply for licence when using two-way radios. In some cases an amateur radio licence is also required. While this may seem like a hassle, there are actually many benefits attached to a licensed service, especially for a business concern.
• Better range: A licensed radio service has a much better range and this is why most business concerns go for radio licences.
• Clear service: Licensed radios have a much clearer service since there is interference from other users is minimised.

How to apply for your license?
Normally you must contact Ofcom and fill out their forms. You must know the various categories and about your frequency. Alternatively you can leave this job with us. Our experts will explain to you the terms of your license and the advise you on the right one. We will then apply on your behalf, taking care of all the red tape and hassle.
