Simon… Hams certainly hope you have a valid XZ ham license. I suggest you could help by putting your paperwork on one of your web sites. A nice clear presentation we can all look at.
3-5-2013 query to ARRL DXCC official reports that ARRL has not received any documentation from you to date. There is no confusion about what papers ARRL will want. Submit your license copy; the name, authority title/govt branch name, and contact information of the person and office issuing the license; and photographs of your self in XZ locations that clearly show your body present there is usually all ARRL needs. You have had over a year to send that documentation to ARRL.
Currently, information given me by various sources and a ham actually going to the proper office in the new capital city all report that the issuance of ham operating permits from the national government do not exist and can not exist at this time to anyone. Further, reports indicate that there is no authority inside that nation to grant operating permits at any govt level, local or otherwise.
It is this information that makes it so highly urgent that you just post your license/paperword on the Web.
Please help all hams in South East Asia present a fact and an image of legal ham activities because even one fake or rump activity can spread problems to many in the whole area. Thanks, 73

Simon… Regarding your message here of 5-9-2012. Please note that Myanmar national capital city is Naypyidaw, not Yongon. This change-over happened in 2006, and this new city is now populated and all national govt offices are located there. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naypyidaw
Further, the Region of Tanintharyi is NOT one of the self-administered States in Myanmar which indicates it is under the direct administrative authority located in Naypyidaw, the national government. Thus, it appears that it is impossible for you to have a valid ham permit from any official in Tanintharyi Region. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Administrative_divisions_of_Burma
I strongly urge you to help protect the integrity of and current delicate situation of ham licensing in all of S.E.Asia. One bad apple here can upset the area where people have worked hard to obtain what ham radio now has but could lose in a moments notice.
Because the Wiki Web sites noted here, seemingly correct, indicate your operation of any ham radio as you have publically described it is NOT VALID, I urge you to realign your statements with the facts of this situation. Please help SEA keep what ham permissions we have.
Tnx, 73, Charly K4VUD
