Today, January 18th, New Technical Requirements has been published from Bulgarian Ministry of Communication.
Thanks to the great commitment of BFRA now Bulgarian Amateurs have obtained some important changes :
– Removed the age limit for the acquisition of Class 2 license (VHF and UHF with a power of not more than 5 watts, and HF from a club radio station).
– Established 14 years old as age limit to obtain Class A license (All bands with full legal power)
– Removed the mandatory 6-month period between the Class 2 and Class 1 exams.
– Significant increase in the power allowed in most bands : Max output power is now 1000 Watt (in stationary mode) and 1500 Watt allowed when participating in international contests.
And other minor changes.
