How do I a) get this changed to my name & address & b)get an up date version? Does the licence ever actually run out anymore ?

I have an various RT licences that never actully expire, so not worried about them,just the boats own licence I now need to worry about. Using the same analagy - I have no tax , jus a licence !
Register on the Ofcom website, in a week they will send you a letter by post with a password and you can then start to sort out your licence. The website is dreadful, so plan on taking an evening over it. Have to hand your boat HIN number (hull number) and the old registration docs etc.

You might need to ring them to assist in transferring the registration.

I registered on the Ofcom website (www.ofcom.org.uk) and they sent me an email with a username within minutes.

I logged in, completed (thanks Jimbo - very useful information ) the details for the ships radio licence and printed out the pdf with my shiny new ships radio licence and call sign (non DSC portable, so no MMSI).

The CG66 also got updated with the issued call sign. So just the short range certificate to go next (I have an HX270E on order) ...

Will it turn up - I'm not expecting anything to arrive by post ? If you log back in, I suspect you will find it ready to print (as a pdf) ...

Sorry to bring back an old thread. I'm either being dim or the guidelines are confusing.

My organisation has purchased 2x VHF handhelds for safety work. They are not to be used on any boat in particular (our safety boat has a fixed VHF with ship licence).

How do we apply for the licences. On our Ofcom licencing account the application for portable ship radio only lets me apply for one.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Amend each boats licence to include handheld as well.

OFCOM State "A maximum of 1 portable VHF radio, 1 VHF DSC portable radio, 1 aeronautical SAR, 1 EPIRB and 1 PLB may be licensed under a Ship Portable Radio licence"

Are you saying that you OFCOM Account will not allow you to apply for multiple licences? If that is the case, presumably there is nothing stopping you from applying personally for a Ship Portable Licence as an individual.

You could always email them on spectrum.licensing@ofcom.org.uk and ask how best to move forward.

Sorry I was being silly.

You can only put one handheld per Ship Portable licence but you can apply for as many portable licences as you want.

Thanks anyway.
