Information about Amateur radio-license in Poland

Poland is a CEPT country! If you have a CEPT license (covered by T/R 61-01) or a CEPT Novice license (covered by  ECC-Rec. (05)06), you may right away enjoy amateur radio license privileges during a stay in Poland (under three month).  Just make sure that you carry your license with you. 

What if you have no valid CEPT license?  Foreign Radio Amateurs without a CEPT license or a CEPT Novice license can apply for a guest license with the Polish telecommunications authority, which is Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) in Warszawa. The license will be issued for 3 months at the expense of  82,00 PLN (approx. 21 €).

If you want to operate in SP for more than 3 months this also should not be a problem. You can apply for a temporary Polish amateur radio license.  You can also submit a statement, in which you mention preferred call sign that you wish to obtain (if available!).  You may list a few alternative call signs of your wish.   Below please find detailed step by step instructions for license application.
