The Port Operations licence is intended to enable organisations, principally businesses, to communicate with their vessels, using international maritime channels. The licence covers the coast station only. The use of ships' radios must be licensed separately, under a Ship Radio Licence. Those who use channels under a Port Operations licence must be suitably qualified. The channels assigned in Gibraltar are Ch 71 (calling) and Ch's 61, 62, 63, 68 and 69 (working). Holders of a Port Operations licence must not use any other channel.
Attached is the application form required for users to obtain a licence along with guidance notes.
