  1. Hi, my call-sign is UY5LW, and I am planning to visit Vietnam on the end of April, and want to have some DX-holidays there. So, I need to send an application to Mr. Ai XV2A, that’s why I leave the comment on this page. 73! Igor.

    1. Dear Kaz,

      Please write an e-mail to XV2A Mr NGUYEN Bac Ai ( xv2a@radioclub.asia (xv2a null@null radioclub NULL.asia) ) with the required information.

  3. I am from Bangladesh call Sign S21AM , I have a plan to visit Vietnam for tourism and operate HAM radio . Any local ham can advise me .

  4. Dear Yan,

    Since I sent the application to Mr. NGUYEN in order to our trip on Feb, it might be not good enough time left to get it before our departure. So, if is possible, please let us know if it would be OK for the license and permission of our planning operation in Ho Chi Min city due to book air tickets and accommodation.

    Please check our application and reply to us what needed more if it is not sufficient for it.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

    1. Hi,

      Unfortunately I am just the webmaster and am not involved in processing the licence applications.
      Furthermore, I am no longer residing in Vietnam and live in New Zealand now.
      My advice to you would be to try to contact M Bac Ai by phone. It can be found on the following website:
      http://varc.org.vn/Lienhe.html

    1. Hi Peter,

      Rules for operating amateur radio from international waters are the same for operators from any country. You must hold a valid licence from the country where the vessel is flagged, you must use a /MM suffix, and most importantly you must have the permission from the vessel master and radio officer.
      In national waters, you must hold a valid licence from the country you are currently within national waters, and use /MM. To the best of my knowledge, Viet Nam does not allow Maritime Mobile (or Mobile or Portable) operations. I don’t know for other countries.
