ARLX002 Brazil Eases Authorization for Radio Amateurs Attending the
2016 Summer Olympics

IARU Region 2 News Editor Joaquin Solana, XE1R, reports that radio
amateurs hoping to operate in Brazil during the 2016 Olympic Games
in Rio this summer are in luck and will be able to be on air without
bureaucracy.

During August and September any foreign radio amateur will be able
to operate in Brazil, whether or not a reciprocal agreement between
the respective countries exists. No IARP or CEPT license is
necessary, and no fees are required. The Brazilian Amateur Radio
League LABRE has obtained permission from ANATEL, the Brazilian
telecommunications regulator, to handle authorizations. Amateurs who
want to operate in Brazil should send LABRE:

* A copy of a valid passport (identification pages) 
* A copy of the applicant's Amateur Radio license
* A list of cities in which the radio amateur plans to operate and
  the respective dates
* An e-mail address

Send scanned documents to LABRE via e-mail at,
executiva@labre.org.br .
