The ARRL Letter, November 16, 2007
"* Iraq Back on the Air Next Week: Diya Sayah, YI1DZ, President of the
Iraqi Amateur Radio Society (IARS), announced November 13 that effective
November 20, all Amateur Radio activity will be "back to normal" in
Iraq. Sayah said, "All Amateur Radio operators in Iraq who carry a valid
Iraqi license will be able to use their radios according to regulations
of IARU Region 1 and the IARS." Amateur Radio activity in Iraq was
suspended in March of this year, with the suspension affecting both
Iraqi citizens as well as any foreigners -- including military personnel
and contractors -- who have been on the air from Iraq. The request to
halt all ham radio activity and the issuance of licenses in Iraq
originated with a letter from the Iraqi Ministry of Defense to Iraqi
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki as part of a new security plan, Sayah
