Hello. My name is Luis. I live in Madrid, Spain.
My callsign is EA4BGH.

I'll travel to Thailand (BKK) on next week. This will be my 3rd trip, but the first as a licensed HAM.

Hello Luis!

Well congratulation to your new call EA4BGH!

According that your are new in HAM radio you should research a little bit more .... Thailand has NO CEPT agreement!

That means detailed you have to apply locally for your HS call - Sorry to say that Spain doesn't have an agreement with Thailand that means you can not apply for any call here before the reciprocal agreement between Thailand and Spain is signed! - without HS0Zxx call no operation allowed!

I also advice you to leave your Icom IC-E90 at home (DO NOT BRING it into Thailand!!) that could cost you 5 years in jail (prision!!) - Importing illegal Radio Equipment into Thailand!

Here some further information about HS licences and RIG (Radio) regulation in Thailand ...

 Reciprocal Agreement Country List - Thailand  (http://rastforum.com/index.php?topic=418.0)

 RIG List HS (http://rastforum.com/index.php?topic=66.0)

By the way RAST - Radio Amateur Society of Thailand will held the next eyeball meeting at Sena Place Hotel, Phaholyothin Rd. Soi 11, Sapankwai, Bangkok each 1st Sunday in month that could give you a good oppertunity to meet HS HAM. The next meeting is on the 4th April 2010 at the given place above!

Thanks a lot for the warning, Swen.

I understand now the CEPT convention is not worldwide valid.  And if I must wait for the Spanish Administration to state reciprocities... ha ha. I could wait till the cows go home!

I'll try to attend to the 1st sunday meeting. At least, I could meet you, ham fellows.

Thank you again, and hope to see you soon.

Back again in Madrid. :(

I wish to thank all people in the 4 april RAST meeting the warm welcome I got. Especially, mr.

(and HS0ZFZ, who took it).

I hope to have more free time on my next trip,
