RE: Re: [sarex] ISS Call sign RZ3DZR

As Art says, there are precedents for a "UN" Callsign:

4U1ITU is at the ITU Headquarters n Geneva, Switzerland
4U1UN is at the UNHeadquarters in New York City

4U1WB is at the World Bank in Washington, DC (counts as US in
the DX world)
4U1VIC is at the UN facility in Vienna, Austria (counts as Austria)

and now there are stations in E. Timor using the 4U6 prefix. 

It really would be nice to have the 4U prefix for the ISS!

Maybe one of the ARRL/IARU folks attending (W4RI?) the WRC in
Geneva can approach the ITU about this.
