The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) has produced a series of recommendations
and deliverables very useful for radio amateurs world wide, because a lot of non-CEPT countries also adopted them.
Here it is a summary:
- T/R 61-01:
CEPT Radio Amateur Licence: entitles its holder to operate in a lot of countries that have adopted it, without obtaining
an individual temporary licence.
- T/R 61-02:
Harmonised Amateur Radio Examination Certificate (HAREC): shows proof of successfully passing an amateur radio examination
and facilitates the issuing of an individual licence in a different country.
CEPT Novice Radio Amateur Licence: similar to T/R 61-01, but for novice licences (medium level).
Amateur Radio Licence Examinations for Persons with Disabilities: with the same syllabus of T/R 61-02,
this claims for different facilities depending on the kind of disability.
There are also two documents,
ERC Report 32 and
ECC Report 89,
describing the syllabus examinations for the novice and entry-class licences
and a new website devoted to Radio Amateurs and CEPT task:
The European Radio Amateurs' Organization
announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "whispering the bands".
Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.
Purpose: to discover and disseminate the program
WSPR (Weak Signal Propagation Reporter), designed by Joe Taylor, K1JT,
