Subject: Amateur Radio Activity and topband operating privileges
The email below received from Abdollah Sadjadian this morning after a request
for his assistance last evening.
I hope you are well and operating contentedly.
Please note that for all practical purposes there is no amateur radio activity
in Iran. And, with 160 meters never used ( at least for the past 50 years that
I know of) the issue is not clearly defined here. However the only restriction
always defined and enforced is the max TX output power of 100 watts.
I, Dennis/K0CKD happen to have a QSL Card from EP2IA when I was WB9YTT in
Illinois back in the late 1970s. Not on 160 meters though.
For your info. I have been off the air for a few years, mostly due to the tall
buildings around my house completely blocking my antennae. I have now a
permission to install the antenna on the top of the tall building by my house
but a bypass surgery some months back and unavailability of suitable low loss
coax has delayed reactivation of EP2FM so far.
Also, my old Drake TR3 is only good for 80,40,20,15 and 10 meters bands.
Besides that I understand that 100 watt into a small simple antenna would not
do much on 160 meters. Still, I am interested to hear more if somebody plans to
work EP on 160 meters.
Please feel free to write should you need any more info or possible help.
