The cost of a licence is N$50,00 (same as 50 Rand), and the fastest way to obtain a licence is to fax a certified photocopy of the current licence to the NCC together with a signed application form, and to state that you will collect your licence upon your arrival in Windhoek, when the licence fee of N$50,00 will be paid. The original or a certified photocopy of your home licence should be taken with you when calling for your licence. If you have sufficient time, the documents may be submitted by air mail accompanied by a banker's draft for N$50,00 in favour of the NCC. The licence granted is subject to such restrictions as to mode, power and frequency as may be contained in your home licence.
The call sign allocated is usually V51/ followed by your home call sign, e.g. V51/OH2MCN.
The VHF frequencies are 144 -146 and 430-440 MHz., whilst HF frequencies are those adopted by the IARU Region 1 HF Band Plan as adopted at the 1996 General Conference. Power is restricted to 400 watts pep on SSB and 100 watts on VHF FM.
Any assistance as may be required can be obtained from the NARL.
