Going to Moldova for your holiday? take your radio.

RESTRUCTURING: MOLDOVA HAS JOINED CEPT LICENSES

International Amateur Radio Union Region 1 reports that Moldova has signed the pan-European CEPT Novice and Class 1 amateur radio license agreement.

The CEPT Radio Amateur License Class 1 corresponds to the United States Extra and United Kingdom’s Advanced and Full licenses. The CEPT Novice License is closely compatible to the Unites States General and UK Intermediate license.

There is also a CEPT entry class license which equate to the United States Technician and United Kingdom Foundation class, however Moldavia is not joining in that entry level system. At least not at this time. (IARU-R1)
