ACMA Planning

Who ARE the acma?

The ACMA are the Federal agency responsbile for managing all spectrum related legislation and licensing.
They are a government body who control licensing conditions relating to two-way radio equipment. 

What is it?

The ACMA license is a document giving permission to the registered owner that they may use a certain frequency when using their two-way radio.
This use is restricted to a certain set of conditions.
Depending on the band, power evel, location & equipment specified there are a range of different licence conditions that need to be met to
ensure each individual or company remain compliant with their licence.

What Are the different licences?

Class Licence:

The ‘Class Licence’ dictates that for certain bands and/or frequencies you are permitted to operate under a ‘class’ licence. 
meaning, the ACMA ‘class’ a certain set of channels where a licence is not required. Those with this type of licence therefore are able too conduct communication on these set number of bands or frequencies. Note: you must ensure you use a compliant radio & it’s programmed acoording to the class licence conditions.

Site Licence:

A site licence offers the owner protection from that frequency being re-sold by the ACMA to another licence holder a given distance.
By owning a site licence, you have the ability to call on the ACMA should you experience interference on your service.
A site licence offers the most protection, however is restricted to that one location and the area around it.

National Licence:

The ACMA have allowed a small set of frequencies to be assigned for National usemeaning you can use the set frequency anywhere in Australia.
There are a few conditions surrounding this licence, these are:

You must not cause any interference to any site licensed service
You are required to still meet the licence conditions for your National Licence
