The TRCSL informs that there are many who have not renewed their Amateur Radio License. If you do not renew as soon as possible the Ministry of Defense has instructed the license be cancelled and once cancelled the applicant will be asked to sit the examination again and seek new security clearance.
Now don’t panic. Immediately check your license and see if it is renewed until at least 31st December 2019. If not you should immediately take steps to renew.
The Renewal process is.
1. Fill up a renewal form. (Form attached for your convenience)
2. Attach photocopies of your license Pages 2 , 3, 4 , 17.
3. Copy of your National Identity Card(NIC) or Passport.
4. A letter explaining why you have not renewed, if it has lapsed.
5. Mention your file NO. the ATN NO used by TRCSL found on your book.
If you can visit the TRCSL it is always better though you could send it via Registered Post to the Attn of Deputy Director Broadcasting & Other Services, 276, Elvitigala Mawatha, Colombo 9. You could also send someone with your forms.
When you submit your application for renewal, your forms are sent to MOD for approval. This is a new requirement for renewals due to new security measures. If you have not renewed for a number of years MOD might ask you to fill up the security clearance forms and insist in re-screening before approving.
AFTER MOD APPROVES TRCSL WILL SEND YOU AN INVOICE WHICH YOU HAVE TO PAY WITHIN TWO WEEKS AND GET YOUR LICENSE ENDORSED. (You can send someone else with a letter authorizing that person. )
