Re: I: Re: Spanish Pirates on AO-27



Hi,

A formal procedure exists in the Radio 
Regulations for dealing with interference matters such as with AO-27 and -51.

Suggest compiling detailed information (see 
below) to be compiled by national societies and 
passed on to their administrations.  These 
administrations will then pass the information on 
to the administration of Spain, which is 
obligated to deal with the issue.  The more 
administrations communicating with the 
administration of Spain, the more likely the problem will get addressed.

One more thing.  The better the offending station 
can be identified, the easier and more likely it 
will be that the administration of Spain will do what we want them to do.

Make sense?

Here's the procedure.

 From the Radio Regulations, Article 15:

Section V  Reports of Infringements

15.19 § 11 Infringements of the Constitution, 
Convention or Radio Regulations shall be
reported to their respective administrations by 
the control organization, stations or inspectors
detecting them. For this purpose they shall use 
forms similar to the specimen given in
Appendix 9.  [Copy follows.]

15.20 § 12 Representations relating to any 
serious infringement committed by a station
shall be made to the administration of the 
country having jurisdiction over the station, by the
administrations which detect it.

15.21 § 13 If an administration has information 
of an infringement of the Convention or
Radio Regulations, committed by a station over 
which it may exercise authority, it shall ascertain
the facts, fix the responsibility and take the necessary action.

Instructions for filling in this form

1 Each report shall refer to only one station 
(see Note 6). If it is forwarded as a letter, it 
shall be in duplicate, and whenever practicable 
should be typewritten. It may also be forwarded as a telegram.

2 The class of emission shall contain the basic 
characteristics listed in Appendix 1. If any 
characteristic cannot be determined, indicate the 
unknown symbol with a dash. However, if a station is not able to identify
unambiguously whether the modulation is frequency 
or phase modulation, indicate frequency modulation (F).

3 In the case of land, fixed, or earth stations, 
the position shall be expressed in latitude and longitude
(Greenwich). If the position cannot be furnished, 
the area of operation should be indicated.

4 In the case of ship or aircraft stations, the 
position shall be expressed either in latitude and longitude
(Greenwich) or by a true bearing in degrees and 
distance in nautical miles, or in kilometres, from some well known
place. If the position cannot be furnished, the 
area of operation should be indicated.

5 Where space stations are concerned, information 
shall be furnished on the orbit.

6 If both communicating stations infringe the 
Regulations, a separate report shall be made for each of these
stations.

7 The time must be expressed as Coordinated 
Universal Time (UTC) by a group of four figures (0000 to 2359).
If the infringement is prolonged or repeated, the 
dates and times shall be shown.

8 A separate report is required for each 
irregularity or infringement, unless they are repeated within a short
time.

9 This information is to be given only in case of 
a complaint about interference.

10 This report shall be signed by the operator 
who has reported the infringement and countersigned by the
Master of the ship or person responsible for the 
aircraft, or the officer in charge of the station in the case of an
infringement reported by a station of the mobile 
service. When the report originates from a centralizing office or
from an inspection service, it shall be signed by 
the head of that office or service and countersigned by an official of
the administration sending it.

For the use of the administration only

1 Company controlling the installation of the station against which
complaint is made 
..................................................................................................................

2 Name of the operator of the station held responsible for the irregularity or
infringement of the Regulations 
............................................................................................

I hope this helps.
