Iceland to End Amateur/Ham Radio Callsign Discrimination

Iceland's Ministry of Transport and Local Government has published draft changes to the Radio Regulations for comment

The national society, Icelandic Radio Amateurs (IRA), had proposed ending the practice of highlighting amateurs who had Novice call signs which have an N added to their call sign. The IRA is also proposing ending another discriminatory practice where Icelandic call signs reflected the geographic call area where a station is located.
