The license fee depends on the following parameters:
° The duration of the license
° The moment of application
° The type of device
° The number of devices
The duration of the permit: in Belgium the license fee is calculated per month. If the duration lasts, for example, 3 months, the cost will be multiplied by 3.
The moment of application: if an application is launched 6 days or more before the start of the period of use, the administration cost will be charged once. Up to 2 days before the start, that cost will be charged 1.5 times and after 2 days it will be charged twice.
The type of device: Different rates are used for fixed ( ex base stations ) and portable or mobile devices ( ex walkie talkies ). The transmission power and bandwidth of the equipment also play a role. The more transmission power and / or bandwidth the more expensive the permit gets.
The number of devices: unlike many other countries, the number of devices is important in Belgium.
