OFCOM plans for the year ahead
See http://www.ofcom.org.uk/content/about/annual-reports-plans/ann-plans/Annual_Plan_Statement.pdf .
Sorry, but this CRAP shows what OFCOM plans are for the year ahead. In an executive executive summary (mine) I would summarise this as,”continue to be a bureaucratic quango”.
It looks like it was written by a young, overpaid, headless chicken. Lots of “informed choice” and similar buzz words. Rubbish in my view. No-one there seems to be able to make decisions based on the use of a brain and common sense.
Give OFCOM some real power and let them make common sense decisions. My recent discussions on VLF/LF experiments are just an example of their total inability to think “out of the box”. Sorry, but as an OFCOM “customer” I am left very unimpressed.
And they still have not addressed again allowing US General Class HAMS reciprocal licenses as they did back in the 1980s (when I was GM5DIG). As a licensed US HAM for over 50 years, I do know how to follow the rules and use my rigs responsibly.
Ofcom emailed the new Amateur licence the other day. This takes effect from April 7th 2015 BUT when am I supposed to let Ofcom know details of me wishing to continue the licence five years after the issue date? Is it April 7th 2020 or is it the date of the original renewal later this year? I will keep you posted. As for that report- 114 pages of quango waffle.
