IARU Welcomes Member-Society for St. Kitts & Nevis

ons, 20/06/2018 - 17:05
​On 28 May the IARU member-societies completed voting on the admission of the St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla Amateur Radio Society (SKNAARS) to the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) as the representative of St. Kitts & Nevis. SKNAARS does not claim to represent Anguilla, which is already represented in the IARU by the Anguilla Amateur Radio Society; the inclusion of Anguilla in the name of SKNAARS dates to an earlier time. With 56 affirmative votes required for admission there were 62 affirmative votes cast, with no dissenting votes. SKNAARS thus becomes a member of the IARU and of IARU Region 2.

Additional information about SKNAARS is available at its website, www.sknaars.com.

Z6 Prefix

The IARU has received a letter from the ITU Secretary General pointing out that the Z6 call sign prefix is not an ITU-authorized prefix allocation. The Secretary General therefore asked the IARU not to include such call signs on its website, where they have appeared since the admission of Shoqata e Radio Amatoreve te Kosoves (SHRAK) as a member-society of the IARU in 2015. As a Sector Member of the ITU the IARU has complied with the request and has so advised SHRAK.
Amateur radio stations in Kosovo currently use Z6 call signs as instructed by regulatory authority ARKEP. Kosovo is not a Member State of the ITU and therefore is not eligible to receive a call sign block allocation from the ITU.
