VP8: Where a Lifetime License is Not a Lifetime License

The Falkland Islands government is requiring all amateurs holding either a full or restricted lifetime license to revalidate that license before August 31 of this year or face cancellation. A widely distributed e-mail from Communications Regulator John Whitby. 

The call for revalidation was originally made last year, but apparently some VP8/Falkland licensees have not followed up, resulting in this third notice. The "Application to Revalidate a Radio License" form must be submitted by August 13, either by e-mail or in person at one of two post offices.  For complete details, see "Notice of Direction" on the communications regulator's web page at <https://www.regulatorfi.org.fk/>.
