    Default HAM radio licence renewal

    I am trying to renew my licence since February, sent all my documents (Form B2, current licence and proof of payment) to Kenneth <[email protected]>, [email protected] and Dewald <[email protected]>, but do not get any response from any of them.

    Who else can I contact to get my licence renewed?

    They are currently battling with system issues, and as of Friday last week had not issued any renewal invoices yet. I am also waiting. I will make contact again with them to find out if there had been progress.

    I paid myne late last year after also battling.

    now when I emailed them this year as I need a invoice I am told my Ham License has been cancelled for non/late payment.

    To say I am pissed is a under statement of note......

    how the hell does one sort this out when there is always some asort of issue or excuse.....

    Hi Mossie, could you get your licence sorted with ICASA?

    Hi Chuck

    Yes and No.

    So the moneys I paid last year on that License number for my call sign is somewhere in the system but because of late payment that license was canceled by ICASA.

    I had to apply for a new license and pay R140 and then they helped me by allocating my call sign to the new license number.

    Then I had to pay licensing fees for the new license and I opted for the 5 year license so this issue will only need attention in 5 years time but got the invoice for the fees and it is R642.

    I need to pay this at the post office but they are closed so making headway with this is a big pain.....

    Regards
    Mossie

    Icasa has a moratorium on licence fees for 2020-2021, see attachment.

    I still haven't even received my renewal invoice for 2019 in the mail, so don't wait for that.

    I paid for a 5 year license March 2019 but never even received a 1 year license like many others.

    Towards the end of last year I got reminded of the ICASA online system again and thought to give it a go. I registered on the online system and it took I think 2 - 3 weeks to verify my details. After that I could see my 1 year 2019 - 2020 license on the system and could download it, but they still haven't processed my 5 year license.
    The online system do allow you to make payments, but doesn't allow you to upload proof of payment for old payments made.

    I then contacted Pieter at ICASA and emailed my proof of payment to him, but they don't have direct access to the online system since another company manages it for them, but he promised to send my proof of payment to the person with access to the system. I followed up with him every 2 days for around 2 weeks and finally my 5 year license got processed and I could download it from the online system.

    I wanted to change my call sign after my 5 year license was finally sorted and I also did this on the online system. I applied on the Monday for a new call sign and received my new license on the Thursday. Yes I almost fell off my chair.

    If you have a 8 digit license number, then give the ICASA online system a go, one day when they eventually put all amateurs on this system things will be so much better.

    P.S. Consensus on the SARL forum seams to be if you paid and have proof, then you are licensed and the SARL will fight for you if needed, so don't worry too much about the piece of paper, as long as you paid.
