Ofcom released age of radio amateurs data
Following a Freedom of Information request about the age of radio amateurs Ofcom said they do not hold Date-of-Birth information for many radio amateurs but released what information they do have
Ofcom say "We do not hold a full breakdown of the age of issued amateur radio licensees as date of birth is not a mandatory field for licence applications."
In September 2000 the then communications regulator (RA) abolished the ban on people under 14-years-old holding a Full amateur licence, since that time a person's date of birth has served little regulatory purpose.
The data Ofcom released showed they only had Date-of-Birth information for:
7,312 out of 28,845 Foundation licences
4,104 out of 12,127 Intermediate licences
44,944 out of 54,072 Full licences
As of March 1, 2021 there was a total of 95,044 valid UK amateur radio licences.

Who on earth are these people taking time up by making such requests?

Is there a 'Freedom Of Information' to find out who's making all these 'Freedom Of Information' requests? Wink


The information gleaned is much as to be expected. The 'old guard' are the national service boys and the next lot are the former CBers....bit of a gap after that.

Nice to see however the under 40's finally making a show and I believe thanks to the current online exams. 👍
