Iceland plans to end ham radio call sign discrimination
On November 9, 2017 Iceland’s Ministry of Transport and Local Government has published draft changes to the Radio Regulations for comment
The national society, Icelandic Radio Amateurs (IRA), had proposed ending the practice of highlighting amateurs who had Novice call signs, an N was added to their call sign. In addition the IRA proposed ending another discriminatory practice where Icelandic call signs reflected the geographic call area where a station is located.
The Post and Telecom Administration’s new draft Radio Regulations incorporate the IRA’s requests and the frequency allocation table has been updated to include the 630m and 60m bands.
