In most places the installation and the user has to be licensed. In some places you are not allowed to use your installation unless you hold a LOCAL license. (? - overheard)

For ham radio? Only the user has to be licensed. For other radio services, the rules may vary. But LOCAL licenses are prohibited in the US. The FCC has the sole authority to grant license for radio operation/transmission, and radio receivers are expressly allowed to the entire public, except for certain "public safety" (security) considerations. The Federal Communications Act of 1934(?) pre-empted all state and local regulation over the public airwaves, and that's pretty much still the case in the US.
Every once in a while some fool corporation or sub-government tries to go against that, and they get slapped down good when the music is over.

A question above seemed to pose confusion, and it is. AR Operators need the license with the station and air as being at their registered address, as the base station, or mobile. If in the air, it would be airborne and if on a boat, marine. Air and marine simply meaning they are mobile. A marine station will of course be with or on the boat. Saying marine in AR does not mean it's under marine radio regulations.
Hmmm, don't know if that's clearer of not, lol. Anyway....I'm about to time out....73's

The station has a license, and the operator has a license, which can be different (ref FCC 97.5). I can operate any US licensed amateur radio station in the US or on the high seas, with the ships master/owners permission, and my own ham ticket. Ref 97.11 A non-ham could operate the station under the direct supervision of a licensed ham

Outside the US (or not on a US documented vessel) the rules may be different. Inside the territorial waters of another nation their rules would apply and I may be restricted from using amateur radio, without a local license.

IIRC at lesat in the US, those designations are no longer required. "it would be airborne and if on a boat, marine." Marine, airborne, mobile, are all now simply courtesy designations no longer required by the FCC for quite some time. FWIW.

As with most regulated activities, that will vary in each venue.
