I hold an overseas Amateur Radio Licence. Can I operate in the UK?
In order to operate an Amateur Radio station in the UK, you must be in possession of an Amateur Radio Licence which has been issued by a country which is a signatory to the Conference of European Postal Telecommunications (CEPT) Recommendation T/R 61-01.
