Appendix A

Broadcast RF – Frequency Licence Information Sheet

RF equipment requires a frequency licence to operate legally in most countries. The frequency licence is in place to protect both yourself as the user of the equipment and other users in the spectrum.

The licence is issued so that a portion of the spectrum is specifically assigned to the user to operate their equipment for an agreed period in a set location.

If once a licence is obtained, interference is detected, the licence provides the mechanism to contact the relevant authorities to resolve the problem.

The consequences of not obtaining clear licenced spectrum can result in interference and subsequently poor performance of the equipment. In addition, if unlicenced use of the equipment is detected by the relevant authorities, this can result in confiscation and/or prosecution.

It is the user’s responsibility to obtain any licences from the correct and relevant authorities. Broadcast RF accept NO responsibility for failure to licence this equipment.

If required, Broadcast RF can assist in obtaining licences both in the UK and around the world.
