Assigning Kosovo Z6 call signs 'Unauthorized and Illegal'
ARRL reports Kosovo, which won its battle to become a DXCC entity earlier
this year, appears to have another fight on its hands
International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Secretary-General *Houlin Zhao* has
determined that the *Z6* call sign prefix was never allocated to Kosovo.
The Secretary-General issued his finding in the wake of a March 16 inquiry
from Serbia, from which Kosovo declared independence 10 years ago, the last
piece of the former Yugoslavia to do so. Serbia has continued to reject
âITU has not allocated call sign series Z6 to any of its member states,â
Houlin Zhou said. âConsequently, the utilization of call signs series Z6 by
any entity without a formal allocation and consent of the ITU represents an
unauthorized and illegal usage of this international numbering resource.â
The Secretary-Generalâs statement was reported in ITU Operational Bulletin
No. 1149. He cited Article 19 of the Radio Regulations, which states that
the management of international series of call signs is an ITU prerogative.
âCall sign series can be allocated only to the administrations of the ITU
member states by World Radiocommunication Conferences or, between
conferences, by the ITU Secretary-General,â asserted Houlin Zhou, who gave
no indication that he would do so.
Kosovo joins a short list of DXCC entities where radio amateurs use
âunofficialâ call sign prefixes. The list also includes Western Sahara (S0)
and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (1A).
Earlier this year, in Mission Goodwill Kosovo, the IARU member-society
SHRAKâs headquarters station Z60A mounted a massive special event operation
to celebrate Kosovoâs addition to the DXCC List, as well as its 10th
anniversary of independence.
