At the suggestion of Paul, ZL4TT, we applied to Radio Spectrum Management for, and
have been granted, approval to treat the COVID-19 lockdown period as a “special
This means that, for the duration of the lock down, New Zealand Amateurs may use
the ZM prefix instead of the ZL prefix on their callsign.
Please feel free to use these callsigns from today.
We hope that the use of the ZM prefix will:
• Help to relieve the boredom for amateurs stuck at home over the lockdown
• Increase the profile of New Zealand amateurs (and New Zealand in general)
Stay safe in your bubble.
Regards, Don ZL2TLL, NZART ALO
