General Info on Amateur Radio in Indonesia

General Info on Amateur Radio in Indonesia
 

Amateur Service is a radiocommunication service for the purpose of self-training, intercommunication and technical investigations carried out by amateurs, that is, by duly authorized persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest.
(ITU Radio Regulations, Article S1.56)
Operation of an amateur radio station requires an Radio Amateur License issued by Directorate General of Posts and Telecommunications.
There are four license levels, or "license classes" : No Code, Novice, General and Advanced.
Before receiving a license, you must pass an examination organized by the state institution above.
A unique callsign is assigned to each amateur radio station during the processing of its license.
Each amateur callsign has a two letters prefix (YB, YC, YD, YE, YF, YG or YH) indicating the station class and a numeral (0 to 9) named call-area indicating the geographic region of Indonesia, followed by a one to three letters suffix (in several call-areas indicating the province area).
Organisasi Amatir Radio Indonesia (ORARI) is an organization to represent the amateur service and its activities throughout the country, founded on July 9, 1968.
ORARI subdivided into 3 levels of organization : ORARI Pusat (National), ORARI Daerah (Provincial) and ORARI Lokal (District).
ORARI is a member of The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).
For more information, please contact ORARI Daerah Headquarters in your area.
Foreign amateur who wish to obtain license in Indonesia should have a temporary residence or residence permit in Indonesia and a reciprocal agreement has been established by the two countries.
License class and privileges will be issued based on original license possessed and valid for only 1 (one) year.
