Major events for PMSE licensees

19 February 2021

Certain major events are not subject to our usual application process and turnaround time, as there is high demand for frequencies and these need to be managed carefully. We assign a designated frequency co-ordinator to each event, who issues specific guidelines for licence applications, including any submission deadlines.
