Example for paragraph (d)

                                An amateur station using computer controlled mode may be using packet mode or radioteletype mode.

         (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 unintended 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.

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

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

               (b)    in any other case —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 the ACMA to consider changing the location mentioned in the licence to the new location, by varying the conditions of the licence under section 111 of the Act.

         (2)   The licensee must not, directly or indirectly, connect the station to a public telecommunications network, unless the licensee has implemented reasonable measures to ensure that only appropriately licensed persons access the station to transmit a signal to another amateur station.

         (3)   In this section:

appropriately licensed person means a person holding a licence that authorises that person to operate a station using the frequency and emission mode of the station being accessed.

Note          A licensee who operates a station connected to the public telecommunications network is not required to authorise other persons to operate the station for the purpose of accessing the station.

         (1)   This subsection applies to:

                (a)    an amateur licence (amateur standard station); and

               (b)    an amateur licence (amateur advanced station).

         (2)   If:

                (a)    a person is using a thing (the item) that is connected to a public telecommunications network; and

               (b)    the licensee connects the item to a station authorised by the licence, whether manually or automatically;

Note          It is an offence, under subsection 7 (1) of the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 to intercept a communication passing over a telecommunications system. Under subsection 6 (1) of that Act, interception of a communication passing over a telecommunications system consists of listening to or recording, by any means, such a communication in its passage over that telecommunications system without the knowledge of the person making the communication.  Under subsection 5 (1) of that Act, a “telecommunications system” is that part of a telecommunications network that is within Australia.
