The Association of Amateur Radio of Kosovo has not been admitted to the IARU
Tuesday, 30 June 2015 08:05

The Association of Amateur Radio of Kosovo has not been admitted to the IARU (International Amateur Radio Union).

In a recent poll in the IARU, the “Republic of Kosovo didn’t obtain the recognition by the international union. This was confirmed by Goran Marjanovic, famoso radioamatore serbo.

According to Marjanovic, they fought a battle against a group of radioamateurs of several European countries that operated without permission and created the association of amateur radio ok Kosovo without the right to do so.

The “Republic of Kosovo” had claimed the “Z6″ prefix and then had submitted its candidacy to became a member of IARU.

After the poll, the candidacy was rejected and the association of amateur radio of Kosovo was not recognized. Marjanovic, nevertheless, believes that the game is not over yet and he expects future attempts to admit Kosovo among IARU memebers.

Several IARU representantives were involved in the Kosovo candidacy, such as the Region 1 former president, the Dutch Hans Blondel Timerman, a member of the executive committee Nikola Percin from Croatia and Martti Laine, famous Finnish ham.

Angels come in many forms…
Tuesday, 30 June 2015 06:22

Thanks for your consideration, by DxCoffee Staff!

From N6PSE Blog…


Angels come in many forms…

There has been a lot said of lately about “Angels” and their role or involvement with a Dxpedition. Some Dxpeditions have an Angel who is generously matching their donations. This is very uncommon but a very nice situation to have.

Angels come in various forms and sizes. The kids at Dorothy Grant Elementary School, who recycled bottles and cans to give the Intrepid-DX Group’s VP8 Team $250 are all Angels. Their teacher and mentor, Beverly Matheson-WA6BK is an absolute Angel for stimulating the hobby of Amateur Radio at her school.

A few months ago, the VP8 team put out a plea for funding so that we could obtain a BGAN terminal to upload logs during the VP8 Dxpedition. An anonymous European Angel stepped forward and generously donated the entire amount of funds necessary for this purchase.

angellightA major Dxpedition such as VP8STI/VP8SGI could not move forward without all of our Angels. Companies such as Elecraft, ICOM, SteppIR, Force 12, DX Engineering, Array Solutions, these people not only produce fine products, but they also work behind the scenes to enable well planned Dxpeditions to be well equipped and to move forward.

Tim Duffy-K3LR, Mike Mertel-K7IR, Bill Hein-AA7XT, Eric Swartz-WA6HHQ and Ray Novak-N9JA are significant figures working behind the scenes to make DX happen.

The people at the Northern California DX Foundation and INDEXA work tirelessly, all year to raise money in support of various Dxpeditions. Without their support, most Dxpeditions would fall well short of their needs and would not be able to move forward. Indeed, Angels come in many forms.

Many DX Clubs and Associations around the country and around the globe do their part and much more to support rare DX. The German DX Foundation is always interested in supporting good projects. The Clipperton DX Club, the Chiltern DX Club, the Northern California DX Club, The Lone Star DXA, The South West Ohio DX Association and many more contribute in a big way to the success of many Dxpeditions.

The good people at the Daily DX, DX Coffee and DX-World are all Angels. They help us convey our plans and tell our story. We cannot do this without them.

As we move forward with our plans to activate VP8STI/VP8SGI, I think it’s important that we look back at where we started and where we are today. Without all of our Angels, our journey would have ended long ago.

Thank you to our donors, sponsors and contributors at every level. Thank you for allowing us to move our dream of activating these islands forward. Thank you for your confidence and your support. We could not complete this effort without all of you. You are all Angels.
