    As Portugal is part of the CEPT organisation, you can operate in the UK with your Portuguese license, and just add G/ to front of your callsign.

    If you're planning on operating for a long time, say more than 6 months (this isn't a legal limit, just advise), then you should be able to get a UK license automatically based on the level of your Portuguese one. You need to contact Ofcom about this.

    From the linked webpage:
    For all enquiries i.e. licence renewals/general enquiries concerning individual licences or their issue:

    Radio Licensing Centre
    PO BOX 885
    Bristol BS99 5LG

    Tel: 0117 925 8333
    Minicom: 0117 921 9550

    Because of the CEPT harmonisation, I was able to get my Finnish license automatically because of my UK, without taking any further tests.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!
