Background – UK Clubs are entitled to hold Full (Club) Licences to enable their members to operate on behalf of the Club by using the Club callsign. Gilmore Radio Club has a Full (Club) Licence, which is held by the licence holder Keith Sale M0JYP.
Who can use it? – The callsign can be used by any authorised Club member who holds a Full UK Licence in their own right; authorisation to use the callsign must be obtained in advance from the Licence Holder, and a record must be kept of when it was used.
Where can it be used? – The callsign can be used anywhere within the UK Licence jurisdiction subject to the appropriate addition of the Regional Secondary Locator (e.g. MM0JUW in Scotland, MW0JUW in Wales). Concurrent use of all regional variations is permitted. The UK Licence only permits Club callsigns to be used anywhere within the UK Licence jurisdiction (i.e. England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man). Members cannot use the call outside the UK or whilst maritime mobile.
How do I apply to use it? – Authorisation to use the callsign must be obtained in advance from the Licence Holder. A short explanation of who wants to use it, the period of use, where it will be located and why it is to be used will suffice.
When is the callsign to be used? – The intention is that the callsign should be used during special events. Other uses are not ruled out; these are just examples to illustrate the intention.
How do I know when the callsign is being activated? – The club callsign will be advertised via our google group, website and social media platforms when it is in use.
Where can I find out more? – If you have any questions about the use of the Club callsign, please contact any member of the GRC team via email@example.com
