Thailand 3rd Largest Ham Radio Nation

Thailand had the third highest number of licensed radio amateurs in the world with a total of 101,763

Totals by license class:

  • 100,800 Novice (100 watts 28 MHz, 60 W 144 MHz)
  • 703 Intermediate (200 watts all bands)
  • 260 Advanced (1 kW)

Thailand has a population of about 68 million and although the total of 101,763 amateurs looks good it actually represents a steep fall from the total of 247,676 achieved in May 2012.

It is only recently that Thai amateurs have been able to sit exams for the Intermediate and Advanced licenses
