I thought it would be best to ‘move this’ on to a separate discussion (I have removed my postings re CEPT from the G4YSS NP-009 thread).
Andy MM0FMF initially commented:-
“One small point for UK amateurs to bear in mind, since the UK licence changed to the new lifetime version, club callsigns can’t be used abroad under CEPT TR61/01 rules. I only found this out last year as I’ve used many club calls in Europe over the years. They used to be legal under CEPT but not any more. Which is a shame.”
According to Section 16, “Where this licence is a …Full (Club) License, the Licensee may operate in countries which have implemented CEPT Recommendation T/R 61-01…”. To me that means you can use the club callsign (but without the Regional Secondary Locator ‘X’, ‘S’ etc) or am I missing something Andy ?
and Andy then commented:-
Well Mike I have to admit confusion now. I can quite clearly recall reading something (somewhere) that showed that club operation under CEPT was no longer allowed. But I’m blowed if I can recall where. Yes, I would agree that section 16 says you can use a club call under CEPT. Now, I’m going to be annoyed till I find that reference which said you couldn’t.
