Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you are licensed to participate in the amateur radio service in Germany and are planning experimental and technical/scientific studies with an amateur radio station, you can apply for a special permit from the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA). This permits certain exceptions to the applicable technical and operational framework conditions of the Amateur Radio Ordinance.

If the amateur radio station is to operate remotely or automatically, please use the application form for the allocation of remotely or automatically operating amateur radio stations and add an explanation of your experiment or technical/scientific study.

In any case, a detailed description of your project is required for the processing of your application. If the BNetzA has any queries about your experiment or technical/scientific study, this may prolong the processing time.

For approved exemptions, the BNetzA may impose additional conditions that you must comply with.

The exemptions granted are always limited in time and can be extended under certain circumstances. Please apply to the BNetzA for an extension in good time.
