Ofcom Radio Licence Application

Why do they complicate issues

Just trying to apply for the radio licence via the website.

There's no "Rib" listed under the "Type of Vessel"

What does everyone else put?

Maybe try motor boat & 2 ? When I spoke to them on the phone I think I asked the same questions & was told essentially to ' make it up- as best fits '.

Or go for aircraft carrier/ submarine - and see what happens ?
