For Sale / Warning: advance payment scams are everywhere!
« Last post by hs0zfe on November 02, 2015, 12:09:51 PM »
Once someone who knew nothing about the hobby offered me a TenTec Omni 6+ for 150 pounds. He wanted cash to be sent to London. You guessed it: Western Union!  ::)

Even items like a used notebook posted in DL attracted several African scammers. (Yeah, I would love to ship it to someone's niece in Sierra Leone).

THINK. Nice high end rigs could and would e sold within hours. someone local would hop in the car and drive to get them. The IC-7800 costs now what, $ 12 k? But the whole idea is to find some overseas buyer who cannot come by and look at the radios.
...
When I worked at an internet bank in 2001, I got lots of calls from Police stations all over DL. Someone with an account (!) had been sending out bricks.

Please be careful!

You can actually read the reasons behind that in the IARU region 3 report from RAST (thanks Karsten for the link).
http://iaru-r3.org/16th-triennial-conference-of-the-iaru-r3-documents/

Basically it says NBTC opened the bands and officially announced that in the royal gazette. Which then made the military very unhappy, as they were not asked and want to use particularly 6m as exclusive emergency band, contrary to international regulations.

Thus there is now a power struggle which will likely result in a "demotion" of NBTC and putting the frequency management in the hand of the military. Here is more to come. Going 1 step forward and then 2 backwards again.

RAST appears to be standing somewhere in the middle and does not want to say anything to not p*ss of either side.

Thanks Scott and Marcus for reply.  Good that I don't use 80m or 6m here, so I am not in trouble if it is allowed to use it or not, hi.
Was just wondering why there seems to be different satetements from NBTC and RAST.

If it's in the Royal Gazette (and endorsed by RAST for it's members by publication), it shall be legal.


That is for 80m as well as 2m where equipment can be legally purchased, licensed and used. Different story for 6m and other formerly non licensed bands.


So what other statement from RAST would one need?

I just read on the RAST web page (October meeting)
The RAST President also promised that there would be good news very soon regarding the 80-metre band with the NBTC reportedly about to announce an expansion from 3.5 - 3.54 MHz to 3.5 - 3.6 MHz, an expansion from 40 KHz to 100 KHz.
I Just wonder, as I downloaded in July 2014 the new bandplan (from RAST page!!!) and it already showed that extended QRG.
How does it come that after over 1 year later it is written on RAST page :
Expansion of 80 metre band imminent

As you know, if you check the rest of that bandplan, you will see that we already have access to the 6m band, the 70cm band and a whole bunch of microwave bands. Also, the 2m band runs from 144.000MHz to 146.500MHz.

In theory.

On paper.

In reality, that bandplan to which you refer was released to the public in the Royal Gazette while the country was undergoing a military coup, and although it has not been officially rescinded, neither has it in fact taken effect. It's like a document in limbo.

The reason why this is possible, is that the NBTC (which is a part of the government, and so is currently under the control of the military junta) does not allow us to own radios that are capable of transmitting on those frequencies, and so if you do transmit "out of band" you can be prosecuted for owning an illegal radio transmitter.

(This is all in theory - I have not heard of any cases brought against anyone for doing this.)

There is a de facto embargo on the use of any frequencies not in the original (previous version of the) bandplan, despite the posting of the updated bandplan in the Royal Gazette last year.

The official NBTC document announcing the new regulations (in Thai, of course) is archived by RAST here : http://www.qsl.net/rast/NBTC_2014_regulations.pdf - there is no doubt that it is a legal announcement, it just seems like it has not taken effect yet :)


Best regards,

Scott, HS0ZLW and G0SWG
