OFCOM Letter

I received a letter from Ofcom referring me to the website below and explaining they were making changes to my VHF licence. I was a very early user, taking the then VHF test in London at some Home Office place in London. You would not like my photo as a student. But, I'm proud of Viveza's call sign which is just 4 letters: MPTG. I'm however very jealous of those with 3 digit sail numbers.


In boring lockdown I followed this up. I am none the wiser. The letter has been placed in the 'too difficult' pile. Does anyone know if I have to do anything?

Don't climb the mast while anyone is using the VHF?  laugh

I think it’s to do with shielding ( no not staying at home) for electro radiation which might damage the brain. Bit difficult to tell if this has happened over the years with Twister owners. I think if you are using a standard VHF and a class B AIS then you are fine. If you are using Class A I will watch out for you in the Solent.
