Hi Radio Active Scouts,
The ACMA have invited comment on proposed changes to the Amateur Radio rules in Australia. This consultation could have a significant impact on participation and interest in STEM activities, including JOTA / JOTI within Scouting. Let’s make sure we have a creditable response. Let your voice be heard. Consultation Closes 9 August 2019.
If you feel that you wish to put in an individual submission, go right ahead. If you would like to have your comments considered for a combined response, please forward to me by 3 August 2019.
Issue for comment
The ACMA is seeking submissions from interested stakeholders on the proposals set out in this paper.
Comments are invited on:
- the proposed changes reflected in the draft Radiocommunications Licence Conditions (Amateur Licence) Omnibus Amendment Instrument 2019 (No.1) and written notice
- other changes for possible inclusion in a future amendment instrument
- any other issues relevant to amateur licence conditions and licensing arrangements, including opportunities that would reduce regulatory burden on licensees while not detracting from other legitimate uses of the relevant spectrum.
