    It’s excellent news that there are Iraniam ham operators and it’s great to see further engagement in a friendly way between both countries.
    Suggest that American hams keep in mind that Iranians don’t enjoy freedom of speech rights as in the USA and they will invariably be constrained in what they post here and what they can say on the air. Let’s try and make the situation better for everyone!
