Transmitting on uplink _also_ require a license ... you're just using
the license of your operator that delagated the right to you to
transmit in uplink when they sent you a IMMEDIATE ASSIGNEMENT.

But I can assure you if you start txing in the uplink of an operator,
they'll complain ...

Here in BE, the license clearly lists both the uplink and downlink
frequencies when you're allocated a GSM test license.

Cheers,
