AM25FEDIEA+general authorization for the 25th anniversary of FEDI-EA
Federación Digital EA (FEDI-EA) celebrates twenty-five years since its founding (1992-2017) this July,
specifically on the 25th. For this occasion, the special callsign AM25FEDIEA will be on air
from 1 to 31 July, to be used in multi-club mode through its usual booking system.
In addition, the PTT also has authorized all Spanish licence holders (who wish) to use, on the same dates,
their callsign as special in the following format:
changing prefix: those EA to AM, EB to AN and
EC to AO
adding the number 25 behind the own district figure
and keeping the suffix of their own callsign.
Thus, for example, to the callsign EA3RKF would correspond AM325RKF.
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.
The history of FEDI-EA dates back to
the end of the 80s, with the outbreak of packet radio, continues with the constitution in 1991 of a Promoters Committee, whose work culminates
on July 25, 1992 with the approval of its Statutes.
Since then, 25 years have passed, in which FEDI-EA has helped shape a vision of amateur radio more modern, plural and inclusive.
