    Tunisia issues personal licenses to operate

    The first three Authorizations to Operate have been issued to 3 Tunisian radio amateurs. These are the first issued since 1956

    The IARU Region 1 site reports:

    3V8HB, 3V8MN and 3V1MB will soon be on the air from their homes rather than being restricted to operating from a club station.

    Issuing individual authorisations to operate is a new process in Tunisia and involves a number of stages, including equipment conformity checks.

    This is great news for Tunisians that the process now exists so that radio amateurs can practice their hobby from homes in full compliance with the Tunisian Laws.
    The IARU Member Society ARAT extends its thanks to the National Agency of Frequencies, the Ministry of Telecommunications and all involved parties for making this happen.

    Look at it this way to all my ham friends. Even with band conditions we suffer today, most can still hear diligent Italian stations calling "CQ" to North America. Agree?? OK, now get out a map or whatever you use to locate worldwide countries. Got it? OK, now find TUNISIA. Find it? OK, now look at how close Italy is to Tunisia. Conclusion in loose terms....if you can work Italy on 100 watts and a wire...then good chances are, you can work Tunisia...GL!

    One thing that has been great about ham radio is that I have learned more geography then I ever learned in school.

    Not at all the case near Seattle. Location is everything. I hear Japan WALL TO WALL and a lot of China and Korea but only rarely hear Italian stations these days much less Tunisia

    But the sun will one day soon have spots again and it will all change for the better :)

    You really do not appreciate the freedom that we have in our hobby until you read something like this. No individual licenses since 1956, no home stations - it is hard for us to imagine such things.

    Also, I totally agree with KG5THG. When I got into Ham, I realized how little I knew about geography, except for the major countries.

    Congratulations to our Tunisia Ham friends, we'll be watching for you on the air.
