#Brexit working as intended I guess: 'Google is planning to move its British users’ accounts out of the control of EU privacy regulators, placing them under U.S. jurisdiction instead.

I've been called by the BIPT department responsible, and they explained to me there are 2 types of licenses,
- A personal call type (5y valid)
- 3 station type licenses (1y valid)
So I've gotten the station type renewal.
The station licenses are for the equipment: Portable, Mobile, Home
If you have a 2nd home, you need to get an extra station license...
