Amateur Radio in the United States

If you are a licensed amateur radio operator coming to the meeting from another country, it now is easier than ever to operate in the United States. The U.S. now recognizes amateur licenses from countries in the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) and also recognizes the International Amateur Radio Permit (IARP). If your country is a party to either of these agreements, you can operate in the U.S. without additional authorization from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. For details, see the American Radio Relay League's information on foreign operations in the U.S.

In Socorro, the Socorro Amateur Radio Association operates VHF and UHF repeaters that are open to all amateurs and are easily accessible with hand-held transceivers.
