  1. Hello MR. NGUYEN BAC AI

    Greetings from Jena in Germany to you in Vietnam.
    My name is Johannes and my call is DF5AU.
    In the last years I operated from various locations on HF.
    Next year I want to visit a good school friend of mine near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. He is not an radio amateur.
    It would be very nice to work for some days from Vietnam on shortwave bands.
    I have a question.
    Is there a possibility to use a clubstation or a rental station in Vietnam ?
    Can you help me ?
    Thank you very much for your kindness.

  7. Dear Nguyen,

    Both my wife and I hope you are in good health and happy.

    I will be in Hanoi the first or second week of March for some business.

    In fact, I might return to work in Hanoi for a few years until I retire. Gloria may also teach in the university there and our grandchildren will be staying with us.

    I would like every much to speak with you again.

    You may recall that you helped me obtain the license of XV9AZ .

    I recall that you needed some matched tubes for your amplifier which my wife brought over and we all met in the Hanoi Towers one morning. Let me know if there is anything you or your club may need.

    Currenlty I am in the Middle East in Saudi, but will fly to Hanoi around March 4th.

    I’ll try and get a local sim card and call you, if your number is still current.

    Best regards and wishes

  8. Hello, Mr. Bac Ai,
    I’ve sent you my application for a week ago, but don’t have any response, probably, my letter has been rejected by spam-filter. Please, check your e-mail, so I can resend all needed scans. I arrive to SGN on 9th of May, so, it is very close for now…
    73! Igor, UY5LW.

  11. I have been working with a Vietmanese female student who is in the USA to obtain a graduate degree in engineering. I introduced her to ham radio, and she will have her Extra Class license (highest in USA) in a few days (passed three written exams).

    What are the requirements she would have to meet to obtain a license for HF operation in her home country of Vietnam? I know she looks forward to returning after her degree is received. It sounds like XV2A would be a good person for her to talk with; can you send me his e-mail please?

    Thanks very much!

    73 Ken K5KC

    PS: I have been to Vietnam in 2005, 7, and 9 but did not operate.

    1. Hi Ken.

      Next time you come here don’t mind asking a license or an authorization to operate one of the club stations.

      If she has an HAREC certificate or an american Extra license I think she will be granted a vietnamese license without any kind of trouble, just a photocopy or scan of the license and the usual administrative stuff (copy CMND, copy So Ho Khau,..).
      Ask Bac Ai and he will answer you about that.

      If she needs to pass the examination in Viet-Nam, I know that Bac Ai recently modernized the exam but don’t know exactly the contact. She could contact anh Thu XV9AA who is a young HAM that has recently (less than 2 years I think) passed the exam and is know managing the F-1 cubesat project.

      I will send you both e-mail address in a private e-mail soon.

  12. Hi, 12/7/2011
    I am in HCMC Vietnam with some QRP for 40/80. Have no intentions to operate other than on dx-sb/cw rx but would like to have contact and join society if possible whilst here….maybe access club antenna to use with d/c receiver…..Please email me [e-mail address deleted] with info on possible contact and chat (I speak English and some reasonable french but not Vietnamese, sorry) Tony Clancy VK2MS

    1. Hi Tony,

      I already answered to your other comment.
      If you stay in Saigon, the best is that you contact Bac Ai de XV2A. He is the president of the national radio-club and will introduce you to other people.
      Perhaps you could ask him to operate one of the club stations in HCMC, this could be done easily.

      I will send you his e-mail address in a private message.

    PO BOX 120 Labrador Post office
    Central Street Labrador , Queensland, Q. 4215
    Australia
    My licence is “full call” which means “unrestricted” or what the Americans call I think “Extra”

    I don’t know if you can save my equipment from being sent back, maybe you could try for me as quickly as possible.
    The contact is Mr Quoc Thai at EMS company His telephone is 08 3845 8999 and extension 380. he knows about the matter of “Radios for Anthony Clancy. My fear is they may already have been sent back to Australia. His email is thaiguyen.ems[arobase_character]gmail.com.

    Bar code on paperwork is EQ01400281AU

    Can you try to call him urgently and explain my situation and why I would have a 40m and 80m QRP radio and be responsible enough as an Amateur not to be transmititng unlawfully.

    Thank , see you also saturday, We will communicate about that also later, Cheers Tony

    1. Hi Anthony,

      I am not Bac Ai de XV2A but Yannick de XV4Y. I already gave you Bac Ai’s email address in a private message.
      I have no power upon your trouble for importing radios in VN. Perhaps Bac Ai has some connections there but I doubt he could do anything if you have not asked a license before trying to import the radios…
      You should have taken the rigs in hand luggages, it is easier this way.
      Try to e-mail XV2A to the address I gave you…

      73 and GL,

    1. Bonjour Laurent,

      Tout dépend où vous serez. Il sera peut-être trop court pour vous obtenir une licence, mais vous pourrez sans trop de difficultés obtenir l’autorisation pour utiliser la station d’un autre OM si elle est déclarée en tant que “station-club”.
      Cherchez à contacter des OM tels que 3W6LI, XV9AA ou XV3AA… dont vous devriez trouver les e-mails dans QRZ.com.
      Pour ma part, je suis à Can Tho dans le delta du Mékong.
      Je vais vous envoyer en message privé l’adresse e-mail de NGUYEN Bac Ai de XV2A, le président du VARC. C’est lui qu’il faut voir pour obtenir les papiers nécessaires une fois que vous vous êtes mis d’accord avec un autre OM.

      He will sure help you in getting the information about the license.

  19. Hi,

    I am a Vietnamese from Hanoi and seriously interested in getting an amateur ham radio license. Please advice me how to get the license.

    Currently I am only do some listening by my scanner IC-r20 and IC-r2 and really interested in doing real ham radio. Please also advice me which popular transceiver devices I should purchase for connecting others in Vietnam.

    It is nice to know club. I thought I was lonely in this area. I really hope that the club can help me to start enjoying this hobby.

    Thank you for your help.

    I look forward to your reply.

    Best regards
    Son P

    1. Chao anh Son,

      Sorry for taking so long to answer but I am currently in holidays and was not able to check the e-mails.
      You should contact Bac Ai XV2A as he will give you all the details about the examination.
      Thu XV9AA is in Hanoi and perhaps you can contact him to have more information about HAM Radio. He is busy with the F1 satellite project but I am sure he will help you.

      I will send you a private e-mail with their contact informations.

      Hope to hear you soon on the bands.
      Regards,

    Greetings from Ardsiri fromThailand to you in Vietnam.
    My name is Ardsiri and my call is HS1JQP & KB3BQW
    In this time I stay in Hai Phong until Nov 2012
    Is it possible to meet Vietnamese ham radio people during my trip ?
    Can you help me ?
    Thank you very much for your kindness.
    Vy 73 de Ardsiri HS1JQP

    1. Dear OM Ardsiri,

      You should try to contact XV1X or XV9NPS who are in the north. I think they are closer to Ha Noi than Hai Phong, but perhaps they know amateur radio operators who live in this area.

      Best 73,
      Yan – XV4Y (Can Tho).

        1. Sorry but I don’t have phone numbers… Have a look on QRZ.com and you should find their e-mail addresses however.

          73,
          Yan.

  21. Dear Yan.
    I will find on QRZ..com again. I have question for radio if send from Thailand by DHL can ship this to Vietnam or not.

  22. Hello Yan,
    Can you advise is it necessary to have a visitor visa to visit your country, if so can this be done online?

    What is the cost of a short term holiday visitor transmitting licence, I hold full operating priviliges in the UK?

    Is it necessary to pre register equipment that I would bring with me?

    I await your kind response.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi John,

      It depends from where you come from but if from Europe or the Americas, yes you need a visa.
      There is several way of obtaining a visa but no “online” request direct to the immigration. However, if buying a comprehensive package from a vietnamese travel agent, you can ask for a “visa on arrival”. The cost for 1 month 1 entry tourist visa is usually 25 USD for the visa and 20 USD for the agent.

      The cost of the license depend on the number of bands you want to operate. Licenses are fixe only so if you want to apply for several location you will need to ask several licenses. It also depend on the time but 1 month is the minimum duration.
      This you should ask Bac Ai XV2A who is the VARC president and manage the applications. You have his e-mail address at the beginning of the page.

      Yes you will have to declare what equipment you want to operate when applying for the license. It will also help you with the customs if they want to check what you want to do with the equipment.

      Regards,
      Yan – XV4Y.

  23. Dear Mr. Bac Ai,
    Greetings from California! I will be in Vietnam in a few days and am interested in obtaining a license and operating from XV in HCMC or Can Tho. I would appreciate contact information for licensing and stations I could operate from. I will bring my current US license with me. Please advise what else I need to do before I depart.

    1. Hi Doug,

      Usually obtaining a licenses takes at least 1 month.
      However, if you only plan to operate from “club stations” (rental shack) then there is a simplified procedure.
      You should ask Bac Ai to his email address about that : xv2a@radioclub.asia (xv2a null@null radioclub NULL.asia) .

      Regarding my rental shack in Can Tho, it is available to my B&B guests. Depending on your needs, price is 10 USD per day.

  24. Your website gives at least to e-mail-adresses. Both of them are apparently wrong:

    xv2a@radioclub.asia (xv2a null@null radioclub NULL.asia) or xv2@radio-club.asia (xv2 null@null radio-club NULL.asia)? Which one is wrong? Both of them!

    Please adjust your e-Mail-service! That’s all time taking and annoying .

    Thanks, HB9DUF

    1. Dear Christoph,

      Where did you actually see xv2@radio-club.asia (xv2 null@null radio-club NULL.asia). I have searched on the website but see this nowhere.
      We actually received your e-mail but this is a hobby for us and we all have other obligations like work and family. Please take it easy and let us answer you.

      Anyhow, I am sorry if you had a bad day, but this is no reason to be rude.
      Answering to you is also time taking and annoying, and I have reward for it except friendship with fellow HAM and the love of the hobby.

  25. Hi I have just arrived in Hanoi and I am looking to buy some UHF handsets here. Can someone point me in the right direction to a shop street or market where I can buy these. Thanks Toby.

  26. Dear Yan,
    I will be in Vietnam on business trip beginning of next month and will stay in Haiphong 2-3 weeks.
    Please let me know if is possible to obtain XV license in this short time (2 weeks). I don’t have visa and will make visa on arrival.
    Thank you in advance,

    Andy

    1. Hi Andy,

      Unfortunately I am not in charge of licenses.
      You should contact XV2A or XV2B about this.
      3 weeks is short however as usually the turnaround for issuing the license from the ministry is around 1 month.

      Yan – XV4Y.

  27. Today I get some comment from ARRL detail as below :
    Watch Out for Pirates!
    09/09/2013
    The Daily DX reports that some pirate stations have been on the bands claiming to be in Vietnam. Apparently bogus call signs are 3WØIUR and 3WØPQE. Also questionable are XV8LNS on 20 meters (JT65), XV2PC on 15 meters (PSK31), XV2PTEOTL on 15 meters (PSK31), and XV2M on 20 meters (JT65 and SSB). The Daily DX says other call signs believed to be pirates are XV3DCM, 3W2LGY, and 3W4RJF. In addition someone has been using the call sign XV2T on 15 meters CW, but the real XV2T does not operate CW.

    I dont’ know who make this. but this case not so good for Vietnamese Amateur Radio Club.

  32. Hi Yan – XV4Y,

    I am a U.S. ham radio operator, visiting a friend in Vietnam this week. I have a QSL card to deliver to a Vietnamese ham radio operator, XV2RZ, from a U.S. ham, Steve – N7VS.

    Would the best way to get it to him be to bring it to 11 Bis Nguyen dinh, Chieu Str., District 1, HCM City?

    73,
    Allie- KE7OOJ

    1. Hi Allie,

      XV2RZ is no vietnamese. He is Reijo OH4MDY and only come to VN for a few weeks a year.
      The address is your give is the HQ of the VARC, the national association, and home of XV2A, president of the VARC.
      As we have no QSL bureau, it is useless to go there for QSLing purpose.
      N7VS should send his QSL card to OH4MDY in Finland…

      You may be able to operate from XV2A or 3W6LI (in Vung Tau) shack if you like.
      Fees for daily “guest operator license” are low.
      However please do contact Mr Bac Ai before as he might not be at home if you visit him without informing him before.

    How are you?
    My name is Michelle Tram. My callsign is KI6ZWG. I will visit my family close to Da Nang City on August 6, 2014. I know it is too late to apply a Ham License in Viet Nam but I would like to take a chance to contact or meet the active hams around the city during the time I being in Viet Nam. Do you know any one? Could you help me, please!
    Thank you very much for your kindness.
    73
    Michelle Tram

    1. Dear Michelle,

      I hope you will enjoy your stay with your family.
      Next time you’re coming, don’t forget to apply for a license a few months before coming.

      Unfortunately there is not a very active community of HAM radio ops as in other countries, no radio-club where to hold meetings.
      In HCMC I know severa HAMs you would be able to meet at their home, but not in Da Nang. If one day you come to Can Tho, please send me an email so we will have time to drink a coffee together.

      73,

    1. Dear Peter Julian,

      Licence fees are variable, depending on duration and bands you’d like to apply for.
      Yes you are permitted to use Hand Held radios, but VHF/UHF activity is close to inexistent, so it would be of no use.
      Please also note that there are no portable or mobile operating allowed in Viet-Nam.
      Licenses are for a given location. You can have secondary locations written on the license, but all should be in the same prefix area as you have to apply separately for each prefix area.

      Please contact Mr Bac Ai XV2A to the e-mail provided for more details.

      1. I am David Brubacker, N3NWA. I plan to visit Ho Chi Minh City in November 2016. How do I get a license, and is there a club station I can visit/use?

        Thanks,
        David

  36. Please consider becoming a signatory to TR 61-01, this will make it a lot easier for people to operate in Vietnam. Waiting months for a license is just not doable in many cases. I am on a ship right now, and I will be there in about two weeks. What a shame.

  37. Dear Mr. Nguyễn Bàc Ái
    I will operate under my Cambodain callsign XU7AKB in the first two weeks of August 2016 an amateur radio station from Cambodia. In August I would have time to visit you in person and bring all the necessary papers with me (my Swiss license, Passport, Vietnamese Visa etc.). Do you think there is a chance for me to obtain a Vietnamese license and callsign this trip?
    And my second question: can I take my transceiver over the border from Cambodia to Vietnam without having the license first?
    Please reply as soon as possible. Yours Steff Gruber HB9FXL / XU7AKB

  38. Dear Bac Ai, or other person in charge,

    I am visiting Vietnam this August and had made an application for Vietnamese ham license under consultation by Mr. Bac Ai, XV2A. On July 22 Bac Ai kindly sent me an email, in which he notified that lisence was issued for me, and asked me to which he shall send the license. I asked him to send my license to my hotel. Since then I received no response from him and my hotel did not receive my license.

    Could anyone further arrange my license? I am departing for Vietnam in a few days.

    Thank Bac Ai and all for your attention on this matter.

    Sincerely yours,

    Taka
