AO10EURAO: 10th anniversary of EURAO (2005-2015)
<!A HREF="/news/?news=20150601&lang=en" TITLE="english">
In occasion of ten years of the European Radio Amateurs' Organization (EURAO),
the EA Digital Federation (FEDI-EA) will be on the air,
from June 15 to July 15, 2015, with the special callsign AO10EURAO,
to be used in multi-club mode through its usual booking system, and much more...
Also the PTT has authorized all Spanish licence holders (who wish) to use special callsigns in this format:
changing prefix: those EA to AM, EB to AN and
EC to AO
adding the number 10 behind the own district figure
and keeping the suffix of their own callsign.
Thus, for example, to the callsign EA3RKF would correspond AM310RKF.
In this case, FEDI-EA itself offers to take charge of managing the QSLs of those radio amateurs (members or not) who so wish,
both economically and handling cards (design, printing, sticking labels, enveloping and shipping), applying to them its usual traffic policy,
with the only condition to facilitate the activation log.
EURAO was born in 2005 with the aim to be the alternative for grouping all associations, clubs and individual radio amateurs
wishing to obtain an adequate representation in international institutions, share their activities and experiences, develop common services
and work together on new projects.
Since then, 10 years have passed, in which the Organization has progressed, and expanded, steadily through the different areas and countries.
