“In a repost by YT9TP (Serbia) it would appear that the International Telecommunication Union has officially confirmed use of the Z6 prefix is illegal.
This from ITU Operational Bulletin No. 1149, Jun”e 1st 2018.
Call sign series can be allocated only to the administrations of the ITU Member States by world radio communication conferences or, between
