YASME Foundation Funds Transceivers for New Ethiopian Hams:

YASME Foundation Funds Transceivers for New Ethiopian Hams:

The Yasme Foundation http://www.yasme.org/ has provided a grant that will permit three members of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society http://et3aa.com/ to become licensed and get on the air. When Ethiopia came back on the air in the spring of 2011 with the reopening of the EARS station ET3AA, the Yasme Foundation provided a grant to pay license examination fees for 25 club members. Many were successful, but Ethiopian radio regulations require that they demonstrate proof of ownership of an Amateur Radio station to receive a license.

The Foundation's additional grant will go toward the purchase of transceivers for three club members, so they can satisfy the requirements of the Ethiopian licensing process. The Board expressed its appreciation for "the substantial efforts" of Ken Claerbout, K4ZW, who facilitated the acquisition of equipment and mentored EARS members.

The Yasme Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation organized to conduct scientific and educational projects related to Amateur Radio, including DXing and the introduction and promotion of Amateur Radio in developing countries.
