Belize in Need of an IARU Member Society

06/01/2016

The Belize Amateur Radio Club (BARC), which had been the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) member society for that South American county, no longer exists, according to the IARU. In 1993, the IARU Secretariat had published a Calendar announcing that BARC was no longer representing Amateur Radio operators in Belize, and no responses had been received by the International Secretariat to any communications sent to BARC.

“In fact, no communications have been received by the IARU International Secretariat or the IARU Region 2 Secretary from anyone associated with the BARC in the last 23 years,” an IARU news release said on May 31. “Based upon this lack of activity in representing the radio amateurs in Belize and the lack of any communication from anyone associated with BARC since 1993 and according to IARU policy, the Secretary of the IARU has determined that the Belize Amateur Radio Society no longer exists.”

The IARU is asking interested Belize Amateur Radio operators interested in organizing a new association and becoming an IARU member society to apply for membership through IARU Region 2 for inclusion in the next IARU Calendar
