Section 7 - Data Security

** Please note that 7.1 and 7.2 are mandatory response boxes! **
Please click here to read about our privacy and data protection policies.
  • 7.1 Please indicate your agreement to the collection of information.
    Even if you previously agreed, this must be re-confirmed under current data protection rules.
  • 7.2 Please indicate your agreement to showing site detail and any associated coverage map. 

NOTE: Choosing site privacy (RESTRICT) will mean the following:

  1. We will not display a detailed coverage prediction map for your station.
  2. Your site Grid Reference will be truncated in lists.
  3. We will not provide links to mapping which show the repeater site.
  4. Your site will not appear in lists used by equipment suppliers for programming.
If you have previously agreed to us displaying accurate locations, you may change your mind at any time by contacting us from the ukrepeaters website.

Click here to view the RSGB ETCC Privacy policy document.


Before we finish, please take a note of the unique secure access code for this application which will allow you to make changes during vetting, then subsequently to make changes to parameters that would not affect the licence footprint.

Finally, check you have answered ALL questions, not forgetting the potential show-stopper if you fail to respond to the two data security questions in Section 7 above!


Just once only please, and good luck with your application!        N
