Předmět: [ok_list] *****SPAM***** Amateur Radio in Iraq has been suspended
Amateur Radio in Iraq has been suspended until further notice. Yesterday
Iraq Amateur Radio Society (IARS) President YI1DZ, Diya Sayah, reported a
letter was sent from the Iraq's Minister of Defense to Prime Minister Nouri
al-Maliki agreeing to halt issuing Amateur Radio licenses and to cease all
current licensed activity from Amateur Radio operators in Iraq.
This would include both nationals and any and all visitors (YI9). This is
apparently in an effort to increase security. Diya is hoping someone can
convince the Ministry of Defense that Amateur Radio will not cause
interference with the military communications.
Dear Fellow HAM radio HF mangers and officers;
greeting to you all...well hereby i officially announce that two days ago we
received a letter from the prime MInistre office to suspend Iraqi Amatures
Licenses and to turn our equipment to the society untill further notice or
as the letter qauted " till the security turns better" from now on no Iraqi
station should be heared on air till we regain an exception order the reason
behind the letter assumes HAM radio gears could be used to survilance and
intercept of military and police communications and messages during
the security operations ...the society will work hard to make it clear to
the goverment that the amateurs gears are not as they think and can not be
used and it is not a threat to the security issue in IRAQ .
thank you all we will continue our activities as a society and we'll try to
keep tracking and monitoring the amateurs interest ...
thank you all
IARS liaison Officer to IARU
