    Do you agree that Ofcom should include a further ground of revocation in the Licence as proposed above in order better to align Clause 4 with the definition of ‘Disqualified Person’?

    If this is meant to apply for any conviction under the WT Acts and not just an amateur radio offence, it might be felt to be a bit too draconian. However, since a blind eye seems to be turned to many WT Acts offences (e.g. using gain antennas for WiFi or PMR 446 and so exceeding the radiated power limits), it's a power that in all probability will never be used.

    No point in having this if detection and prosecution rates don't increase. Nothing brings the law into disrepute than having regulations made that are then ignored by the authorities.

    Agreed on the basis that Ofcom start taking action against offenders of the WT Act whether or not they currently hold a licence since anyone can purchase transmitting equipment.

    There are folk in Guernsey who break rules, and I see nothing done about it, so unless Ofcom grow some "proverbials" and actually do something, then this clause is pointless.

    ^The number of UK repeaters that get abused is growing daily, Ofcom should do more to track down the offenders
    and take appropriate action
