PRESS RELEASE #1 by Antonio González EA5RM [edited]

dprk-flagDuring June 2013, Manuel, EA7AJR and I had our first meeting with a D.P.R.K. Government official. After our meeting we gave him a Ham Radio project for D.P.R.K.

One year later, April 2014, we had our second meeting and we provided him with a new project.

On April 2015, we had our third meeting and another new project was sent to Pyongyang. Just a few days later after our latest project was received at the Ministry, the D.P.R.K. Government sent us an official invitation to visit the country looking to discuss our project details in person.

On August 17th, 2015 we had a meeting with high level officials from the Telecom Ministry. They were very kind, receptive and cooperative. They knew everything about Ham Radio so it was really easy to talk with them about our operation project.

If everything goes as well as it is up to today, I can say that we are very close to getting permission to realise the first legal Ham Radio operation from D.P.R.K.

So let´s keep our fingers crossed because we are also in front of a real and historical possibility to an opening for future Ham Radio operations from this nice country.
