NMHH is responsible for the management of the frequency assets of Hungary, which means that the Authority is responsible for the utilization of the various frequencies in Hungary. The goal is to use the Hungarian radio spectrum the as effectively as possible and that the services operated at different frequencies do not interfere.
In everyday life, communications or infocommunications and media technology devices demonstrate the most spectacular progress. Due to their great practical use, wireless applications have become increasingly popular. When we use their services, we do not even think about how they work.
Radio amateurs pursue various activities: some are interested in the technical background, some do it for sports (orienteering), while some others are inspired by the prospect of getting in touch with other radio amateurs living in other, distant continents. Performing any radio amateur activity requires an exam and a license to be obtained from NMHH.
The Authority supervises the programme offering of radio stations. It is important to know that there are commercial, community and public service radios. NMHH registers media services, including all Hungarian radio stations numbered over 200 today.
Media surveillance activity
Legislative provisions applicable to all Hungarian radio media content providers are set out in the Media Act. NMHH is a competent organisation overseeing the compliance of affected media.
