Operating in UK

You can operate for 3 months under CEPT T/R 61-01 using a US Amateur Extra licence. For operation beyond that you need to either sit our exams to get a UK licence, or pay for a Temporary Reciprocal licence at £20 every six months (renewable as many times as you like). You cannot get a permanent UK licence without further exams

First three months: you can operate as M/(US AE Callsign) without paying anything, notifying anyone or doing anything, just key up and enjoy. Next six months: apply for a Temporary Reciprocal licence costing £20 which will allow you to continue as M/(US AE Callsign) for another six months Every subsequent six months for as long as you like: reapply for Temporary Reciprocal licence costing another £20

HAREC is a certificate issued when you pass the highest level of amateur radio exam in various countries including the UK, which entitles you to apply for a licence in any of those countries. Unfortunately neither Malaysia or the USA is part of the scheme

£27.50 to sit the Foundation, £32.50 to sit the Intermediate and £37.50 to sit the Full You must sit them in order, but you can stay at Foundation or Intermediate for as long as you like (or forever) The licences are free for life

The Temporary Reciprocal licence gives you the full privileges associated with a Full licence, so in practice you might want to keep renewing it until you've gotten a Full licence (unless you're happy with 10W at Foundation or 50W at Intermediate) The three months you can operate without doing anything also have the full privileges of a Full licence.

This is the form you'll need to fill out in order to apply for a Temporary Reciprocal licence to continue operating in the UK for more than three months after you arrive. https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/47233/OfW346-Amateur-Radio-Application.pdf
