Note   26 January is Australia Day, 25 April is Anzac Day and 17 May is World Telecommunication Day.

         (1)   Subject to subsection (2A), if the licensee makes a single transmission from an amateur station (other than an amateur beacon station or amateur repeater station), the licensee must transmit the call sign of any station being called, or communicated with, followed by the call sign of the licensee’s amateur station:

                (a)    at the beginning and end of the transmission; and

               (b)    for a transmission that lasts more than 10 minutes — at least once during each period of 10 minutes in the transmission; and

                (c)    by voice (using the English language), by visual image or by an internationally recognised code.

         (2)   Subject to subsection (2A), if the licensee makes a series of transmissions from an amateur station (other than an amateur beacon station or amateur repeater station) to a station with which communications have been established:

                (a)    the licensee must transmit the call sign of the station being called, or communicated with, followed by the call sign of the licensee’s amateur station:

                          (i)    at the beginning and at the end of the series of transmissions; and

                          (i)    at least once during each period of 10 minutes in the course of the series; and

                         (ii)    by voice (using the English language), by visual image or by an internationally recognised code.

      (2A)   If a network of amateur operators is participating in emergency services operations or related training exercises, for transmissions relating to those operations or exercises, the licensee must ensure that arrangements are in place for at least 1 station in the network to transmit the call signs of the stations participating in the network:

                (a)    at the beginning and end of a transmission or series of transmissions; and

               (b)    for a transmission or series of transmissions that lasts for more than 30 minutes — at least once during each period of 30 minutes; and

                (c)    by voice (using the English language), by visual image or by an internationally recognised code.

         (3)   Subject to subsection (3A), the licensee must not cause a carrier wave to be emitted from an amateur station unless:

                (a)    the wave is subjected to intelligible modulation; or

               (b)    the wave is emitted during a brief test or an adjustment.

      (3A)   The licensee must not operate an amateur station to transmit signals that are encoded for the purpose of obscuring the meaning of the signals, except for:

                (a)    signals exchanged between an amateur station and a space station in the amateur satellite service for the purpose of controlling the operation of the space station; and

               (b)    signals exchanged between an amateur station and an unattended amateur station for the purpose of controlling the operation of the unattended amateur station; and

                (c)    intercommunications when participating in emergency services operations or related training exercises.

         (4)   The licensee must not operate an amateur station if its operation causes interference to radiocommunications services due to transmissions that:

                (a)    vary from the nominal frequency; or

               (b)    have key impact emissions as a side effect of Morse code transmission; or

                (c)    contain harmonics; or

               (d)    make other unessential emissions.

         (5)   The licensee must take measures that are reasonably practicable to erect, fix, place and use an amateur station in a way that avoids interference to the efficient and convenient working of other stations.

         (6)   If the licensee proposes to retransmit a transmission originating from another amateur station, the licensee must:

                (a)    obtain the consent of the other licensee to retransmit the transmission; and

               (b)    transmit the other licensee’s call sign at the beginning and the end of each transmission; and

                (c)    indicate, as part of the transmission, that it is a retransmission of a transmission of another amateur station.

8A           Transmission on authorised frequency bands

         (1)   The licensee must not operate an amateur station to transmit a signal to another amateur station, through an amateur repeater station, if the licensee is not authorised under the licence to transmit on the repeater output of the amateur repeater station.

         (2)   The licensee must not operate an amateur station to transmit a signal to another amateur station, through an amateur repeater station linked to a second amateur repeater station, if the licensee is not authorised under the licence to use the repeater output of the second repeater station.

         (3)   The licensee must not operate an amateur station to transmit a signal to a second amateur station through a third amateur station if the licensee is not authorised under the licence to transmit on the third amateur station’s transmit frequency.

Note   A licensee may transmit a signal over a repeater link, whether or not the licensee is authorised to transmit on the repeater link frequencies.

9              Control of equipment at an amateur station

         (1)   The licensee must ensure that an amateur station is operated at all times by a qualified operator or qualified person in attendance at the amateur station, unless the station is:

                (a)    an amateur repeater station; or

               (b)    an amateur beacon station; or

                (c)    an amateur station using automatic mode (including, for example, packet mode and radioteletype mode); or

               (d)    an amateur station using computer controlled mode (including, for example, packet mode and radioteletype mode); or

                (e)    an amateur station at a remote location.

         (2)   The licensee must ensure that at all times when an amateur station is operated unattended:

                (a)    a timer is fitted to the station to cause its automatic shutdown if a malfunction causes an unintentional transmission of more than 10 minutes’ duration; and

               (b)    a transmission from the station can be terminated promptly if the transmission causes interference to another service.

Note   For details of the classes of transmitter licences for transmitters that must
be operated by qualified operators, see Radiocommunications (Qualified Operators) Determination 2005.

10            Portable operation of an amateur station

                The licensee must not operate an amateur station at a location not mentioned in the licence for a continuous period of:

                (a)    if the station is an amateur beacon station or an amateur repeater station — more than 7 days; and

               (b)    in any other case — more than 4 months.

Note   If the licensee intends to operate an amateur station at a location not mentioned in the licence for a continuous period longer than the relevant period mentioned in section 10, the licensee should ask ACMA to change the location mentioned in the licence to the new location by varying the licence under section 111 of the Act.
