via the RSGB: First individual amateurs in Tunisia

The first individually-licenced amateurs in Tunisia are now able to get on the air.

Of the 10 people who passed the first exam, five were able to attend a special ceremony to receive their documents personally.

President of the National Frequencies Agency, Ashraf Chaabane and the amateur radio committee president Mehdi Hmem spoke about the hard work of all involved.

Starting from a decree, a dossier was established and exams were developed.

The RSGB’s sister organisation in Tunisia, ARAT, was instrumental to making all of this happen and helping drive the process of getting individuals on the air.
