Just a quick Email to confirm that the information on the qsl website is still accurate, ie for a licence go to:-
2-storey yellow and brown building. Enter the building via the double doors which face the street. Turn immediately right, to the Telecomms Office counter.
I was there in
early November 2013. I took all the paperwork with me (photocopy of passport,
copy of my UK licence, proof that it was still valid etc) plus the completed
form as shown in the web address below (shown correctly on the qsl.net info). I did attempt to obtain a licence before I
The payment was 30 Barbados Dollars and I was given a receipt for the cash. The receipt also contained my callsign (8P9MC). I was told that the licence would be ready for me the following day (and it was). Very efficient.
Please note that amateur licences expire on Dec 31st of the year in which are issued/renewed. They have to be renewed during January of the year following expiry to remain valid. So mine is valid for only a couple of months before it needs renewing. The last page of the licence is 'stamped' on renewal.
I attach some images showing the Trinity Business Centre and its location on the map.
I hope this information is of use.
