RAC Bulletin 2010-021E – IARU R2 Conference opens.
Oct 5, 2010
Salinitas, El Salvador.
On Monday morning, the usual guests did the usual speaches to officially open the XVII IARU Region 2 Triennial Conference. The country Superintendant of Communications surprised everyone at the end of his speach by announcing that El Salvador had decided to sign the IARP agreement Amendment. This very significant news means that shortly the IARP and the CEPT Intenational Amateur licences will be harmonized and become one.
This is the first concrete step towards a worldwide international roaming permit that has long been wished for by the IARU as well as in the Amateur community.
Special thanks to the Club Radioafficionados de El Salvador (CRAS) for their fruitfull efforts.
