A fundamental principal of the Act is that the operation of all radio transmitters (<470 Terahertz, just under infra red) must be authorised by a telecommunications licence. This is independent of the Telecommunications Act 1997, where a carrier licence or nominated carrier licence is required. This Act has relevance for the University as the operator of a Radio Station.
The Determination provides that a licensee may only operate a transmitter to communicate with a station or receiver if that communication is permitted by the licensee's licence.
