I've moved to Laos! How to get a license?
« on: August 06, 2010, 07:21:04 PM »
Well, after more than 8 years of living in Thailand, it looks like I am moving to Lao PDR.  I lived in Phuket between 2005-2009 and built a successful resort with my ex-wife. Now I want to build a new eco-resort and Laos is very welcoming for me to do this.

I'm in Vientiane right now, and investigating locations for a new eco-resort.

But of course, much more important - is how I can get an XW license!  I know XW1A and XW1B (Bruce) are American, so it is possible for foreigners to get an XW licence.

Does anyone know the process to follow or persons to contact?

Thanks

Simon

Howdy Simon, OM!

How are you in Laos? I visited vientiane recently and liked it a lot.

I recall $ 1,200 per band and year  :o You could recoup that on 160 m, no doubt.

How are the import tariffs for cars? I moved near the Lao border and keep fantasizing about importing a German car...

That's correct,  I returned back to Phuket to look after my hotel.  I stayed in Laos for about 3 months, but it was not the high cost for the ham licence that was an issue - rather the restrictive rules about foreign ownership of hotels/resorts.

I decided to wait a few years and then see if the rules have changed for the better.

Meanwhile, I am active on PSK from Phuket, and shortly hope to build a new hotel by the airport, with design emphasis on gettingt a great signal out from my humble ham gear...
