Does anyone in the know whether a ham with a 'N' class license in the Netherlands can operate in the US?

I was unsure whether CEPT would cover that specific license class.

Our club email address had a query from a dutchman that was visiting the area soon and he was wanting to know.


Thanks!

Note the List of countries button on the top of the page.  Click that button for a list of CEPT countries.

The Dutch "N" class licence is obtained with an elementary examination and covers VHF/UHF and portions of HF with a 25 watt limit. It is a "Novice" licence.
As such it is a local arrangement and does not come within the sphere of CEPT Class 1 licences, nor the TR/61/62 treaties by the European Radiocommunications Office in Denmark - therefore it cannot be used for any CEPT international treaty arrangement.
Sorry - but your enquirers "N" class is valid ONLY in the Netherlands, other European licencing authorities may allow a "one to one" arrangement on individual application only (if they feel like it!).

Note: That whatever you may be told there are very few CEPT countries with a current CEPT 2 licence in existance and none are internationally valid under the TR treaties.

   In the 1970's my company had a Software Engineer from the Netherlands living and working
legally (Green card) Stateside for ten years before he moved back home after a Stateside divorce.
He was a Netherlands licensed Ham with a PA0??? callsign, and he operated reciprocally Stateside
for the entire 10 years with USA Extra class privileges. I was a USA General class (13 wpm) Ham
who was curious why he got Extra priv's and not General priv's like me. Just before he moved
back home, I asked him why he got Extra priv's and why he didn't get a USA license while here.
Answer: He never could have passed the USA Extra class (20 wpm) exam, so he took advantage
of an existing reciprocal agreement (prior to the CEPT and IARP) to his benefit.
