Iceland Amateurs Receive New Privileges


As of Friday, February 19, Iceland’s Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) granted temporary experimental access to the 4 and 600 meter bands at least through the end of 2010, according to Islenzkir Radioamatorar (IRA) President Jonas Bjarnason, TF2JB; the ITA is Iceland’s IARU Member-Society. After obtaining a special license from the PTA, Bjarnason said that TF stations with “N” or “G” class licenses may now operate between 493-510 kHz and 70.000-70.200 MHz running 100 W. Amateur operations on both bands are granted on a secondary basis.
