There is a chance we myself, my dad tom M1EYP might be going holiday in Tenerife at around Easter time. I am struggling to find out if a morse test is still required to operate on HF is Spain and I cannot seem the find the Spanish licence regulations anywhere. I understand that you need to take a copy of these regulations when operating in Spain? Also please can you advice on how you would get a permit to activate EA8/TF-001 and where you can buy paper maps from to walk up the SOTA summits in Tenerife, preferably 1 to 25,000?
I’m not that familiar with the British call sign series, but M0GHY seems to me a CEPT Class A license. If so, you are allowed to operate on HF in any country joined the CEPT.
Back in the last century my own call sign (DG…) was restricted to VHF/UHF, but today it’s just another CEPT Class A license without ever having passed a CW test…
Nope. France was a hangout to CEPT changes. Russia still is ISTR.
You can buy 1:40000 maps from http://shop.viewranger.com/product_details.php?item_id=392
(EDIT: Sorry that’s the online version, you can buy paper maps from Amazon.co.uk)
Or look here Visor SigPac
Can I suggest you try the website Google sometime… type the question in full in English and see what comes back.
Here’s the info on the cable car in English.
Thanks Andy for the links. I did Google some of this, but was struggling to find out is Spain still had a requirement to pass a morse test to operate on HF. I know Spain is part of CEPT, but under CEPT you still have to abide by the countries licence regulations meaning that if you have not passed a morse test you cannot operate on HF. I think Greece is an example of this.
activations recently Jimmy?
Can’t remember going to ea8 may be my age though, things are starting to confuse me!
I’ve got the Gran Canaria maps from this crowd: http://www.walking.demon.co.uk/ and they seem pretty good, they do quite a range including Tenerife.
Thanks Andy. I noticed the Tenerife hikers map on quite a few websites. It says it is 1 to 25,000 and I believe this should have both Tenerife’s SOTA summits on it.
As far as I know, morse code is not anymore required to get a ham license in Spain.

Holiday booked. EA8/M1EYP/P and EA8/M0HGY/P now in planning mode.
Thank you for letting me that morse code is not required. Do you know where I can download the Spanish licence regulations from. I know Spain recognises the CEPT licence, but I understand that under CEPT you have to abide the licence of the host country?
We also have our permits to activate EA8/TF-001.
I have just sent the Spain’s radioamateurs regulations to your e-mail on QRZ.com
I hope you’ll get from them what you need for a great ham radio experience in EA8 land.
Good luck to you and your dad.
