ARLX066 Call signs for Austrians

The Republic of Austria will celebrate its millennium--its 1000-year
anniversary--in 1996, by authorizing special call sign prefixes for
radio amateurs.

At the request of the Austrian Amateur Radio society, OVSV, the
Austrian communication authorities will permit Austrian amateurs to
use the prefix OEM for the entire year 1996, OVSV President Dr
Eisenwagner Ronald, OE3REB, said.  Use of the prefixes will be
voluntary.  As an example, OE1XA may be changed to OEM1XA.

OVSV will sponsor two on-the-air (and shortwave listener) operating
awards in conjunction with the special prefixes.  Details on these
awards will be announced elsewhere.
