    Default Zambia radio licences

    Hi, can anyone confirm what radio licences are required when visiting Zambia, VHF and UHF.

    Where one can buy licences if they are required, and what the cost is.

    Also, what is the current legislation on 'licence-free' radios.

    Basically, any info on using a 2-way licence in Zambia will be much appreciated!

    Just got back from Zambia. Had no issue with radios. My car has antennas all over the place. Contacted the licensing guys in Lusaka but they did not seem that interested in the story. Never got back to me. Even for my HF radio

    What routes did you travel?

    Any road blocks? Nothing funny with them regarding your antennas?

    Also got VHF and HF antenna on my car, was wondering if I should remove them when travelling to Zambia in December this year.

    Licences are required for Zambia and an application has to be done in advance, as everwhere in Africa this can take months, however the authorities tend to target commercial users and not tourists.
    If the road traffic authorities want to make your life difficult then they will!!
