20150922 - Check your license record online

Post date: Sep 22, 2015 3:05:42 AM

Attention all Australian Amateur Licence Holders:

The ACMA commissioned the SPECTRA system for apparatus licensing on Wednesday 2 September 2015 as part of Project HELM.Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that in the case of a number of licensed amateur radio operators, their call sign/licence information appears to have become 'detached' from their ACMA Client Number within the new system.

Furthermore, it would appear that as a result of this error, those same licensed call signs are now also appearing as AVAILABLE in the WIA's online 'Choose your call sign' service.

We would encourage all licenced amateurs to check their entry at the ACMA's website at:

by undertaking a search by NAME and then checking that their call sign/licence is attached to this entry. Alternatively search in licence details and check that your call sign is allocated to your client record.

If you find that an error exists, the ACMA recommend contacting their customer service centre on 1300 850 115.
