UPDATE: 6 May 2023

NZART has been advised that RSM are in the process of updating the GURL. There is no need for NZART to again to apply to renew the current licence.

Until such time as the new GURL is published and gazetted then the current rules still apply and must be adhered to.

If you do not have a Sub-Licence then you still need to apply for one. Once RSM publish the new GURL a Sub-Licence will no longer apply.

NZART ALO also requested an increase in power, but this was declined.
