I saw that there are quite a few SOTA summits in Taiwan, since the establishment of the Taiwan SOTA association in November:
I have been to Taiwan a couple of times and still have some of the beautiful mountains on my list. Now, unfortunately, it seems impossible for a visitor to do SOTA operations in Taiwan, because
- Taiwan is no CEPT country (likely due to the One-China policy of many countries), and
- temporary licenses are only possible for using the station of a Taiwanese operator.
You are not allowed to bring own ham radio gear, and I could also not find out whether portable operations with gear from and under supervision of a licensed Taiwanese operator is legally possible. My reading of
is that you can only operate from the hosting Taiwanese operator’s home station.
Has anyone more information on this?

EDIT: The only option I see would be to obtain legal resident status and pass the Taiwanese exam, but this is in Chinese only, afaik.
