I could be wrong on this one, but I understand that in some countries, radio frequencies are regulated, with licences being require to OPERATE on the the networks.
As mentioned most channels are regulated (since commercial operators usually use them as well), so what sort of licences are given out ? and who are the bodies who usually issue these licences ?
for e.g- are licences limited to a specific range of channels any restrictions ?
edit: i'll make this clearer ... & AM/FM frequencies was wrong. my bad.
