You can see the list of FEDI-EAmembers that, following an easy
incorporation procedure, decided to become part of a democratic structure
that allows them to open horizons, without interfering their own management.
The idea of creating Federação Digital EA was born at the end of 1990 as a result of meetings between Sysops,
associations and digital ham radio groups. These meetings, called
SYSEA, are the origin of the
Spanish Packet Radio Network: EANET.
Federação Digital EA, as special guest of DARC, was present in the well known German fair
where the Spanish Packet Radio Network was introduced internationally .
Concerning to the relationship with the Public Administration, specifically in telecommunications matters, FEDI-EA has been doing an spreading and approaching task,
writting some reports and recommendations that it sent to DGTel in order to
explain the reality of ham radio.
Nevertheless, when in 1997 BOE published regulations for packet radio relay stations,
which destroyed, at once, the whole task done during more than 10 years by Spanish radio amateurs specialized in digital communications, real precursors of the internet we know nowadays,
Federação Digital EA decided to start the campaign "Packet YES, Regulations NO" made up of several actions,
emphasizing one: to interpose a Contentious-Administrative Appeal
as the only legal means to amend the errors in the published text, defending in this way the rightful concerns of the members it represents and amateur radio in general.
From a more playful point of view, FEDI-EA
organized, among others, the following events:
SYSEA'92 Congress, where, for the first time in Spain, brought the renowned French radio amateur Jean-Paul Roubelat, F6FBB, to talk a technical lecture about message systems, supplying, besides, a simultaneously translation service to all assistants.
EANET'96 International Contest, where cultural exchange was promoted among countries, reaching 75% of world wide coverage.
publication of DIGICLUB, the unique digital magazine for radio amateurs in this country, giving it a continuity.
