“RADIOERASITECHNIKES EMISSIONS FROM Athos
It is known that long-standing demand of many radio amateurs, for years to come and broadcast from Mount Athos. Older know that in the past and it helped a group of radio amateurs from Thessaloniki and have made emissions from the Garden of Our Lady. Most are aware that in recent years the Holy Community refuses to give permission to anyone. Perhaps most they forget that the policy of the Holy Community was to some extent a result of the way he tried to fool Monks German amateur Baldur DJ6SI to make illegal emissions.
Instead the story to show the way, unfortunately we have become lately witnessed new efforts mockery.
Not long ago some Latvian Radio amateurs came to Mount Athos and without any permission from the Holy Community, tried to enter and make shows, having said, oral permission! Of course neither oral nor written authorization had expelled from Mount Athos. This effort and the communication of their mission, however, although they had the required documents, created a bad image for Mount Athos since appeared on some and amid their longing for a contact, Mount Athos is evil.
Immediately after some time a ham Greek made emissions of Mount Athos. Many messages came again to me with the question whether this ham has the permission of the Holy Community. He argued and said he has permission from a monastery to make educational programs, without taking into account the Regulation of operation of amateur radio stations report on:
‘2.3. In specific cases where they have taken special security measures, the owner of the station, a radio amateur with a valid license may, for educational purposes and aiming to progress of amateur radio, allowing the use of the plant to a third person who does not have the status of ham, under his responsibility, their supervision and instructions, for a short period not exceeding twenty (20) minutes. In such cases, after the station’s call sign is clarified that the use of the station made by a third person in education process by using its distinctive station followed by the suffix / T (training). »
But on Mount Athos his license not “force” not have the consent of the Holy Community, as defined in Article 12, paragraph 8 of the Operating Rules of amateur radio stations.
“8. Administer to RMC Radio-amateur communications from Mount Athos is needed additionally the written consent of the Holy Supervision of Mount Athos.”
So we are talking about another attempt to deceive monks. Again, however, the same negative image in the outside world.
Ultimately we want? To make emissions even if fool Monks doing evil to Athos? We have our conscience by doing so? Did all these actions make bad after the amateur radio, removing even more of a future mission?
Mount Athos is a light source that illuminates all of us and a beacon of Orthodoxy through the centuries.
I asked the Holy Supervision if given a permission and I answered negatively. Indeed, the Holy Community of Mount Athos having regard to the previous illegal broadcasts of the German radio amateur Baldur DJ6SI, the intention of Latvians who wanted to make emissions without the permission of the Holy Community, illegal emissions SV2 / SV1RP / T and / A in the 12- 6-2015, and many other applications hams from around the world seeking to make emissions from Athos, adopted Nos. F.2 / 27A / 1482 / 06.28.2015 Circular to 20 monasteries of Mount Athos which clarifies the issue of amateur emissions from the region of Mount Athos. With this encyclical, the Holy Community stipulates that to make someone else emissions from Mount Athos, it must have a distinctive and the consent of the Holy Community in writing. At the same time it states that all answers to relevant questions were negative, making illegal any emissions.
Please all be more careful in our behavior. More generally good in our lives is when we try something to keep in mind not to insult others, or we raise the values and institutions and try every time by lawful and ethical means to achieve our goal.
With many greetings
Elder Apollos Docheiaritis SV2ASP / A”
