I'm just guessing, but apparently he doesn't speak English. His profile gives an e-mail address, and a web site. I don't have a translator to or from  Farsi, so I can't say one way or the other.

Actually, I may have jumped the gun.  Looks like he's referencing legitimate amateur radio equipment.  Just seems like we have a HUGE language barrier.

Funny thing his query makes as much sense as some which are in (supposed) English.

Steve, my humble apologies! I didn't know Arabic was spoken in Kuwait.
But I have to say, Farsi sounds more exotic, don't you think?

Farsi is what is spoken in Persia (now known as Iran).  To me the word exotic impies something inticing and inviting.  Nothing in the Middle East brings such thoughts to my mind.

Farsi is the national language of Iran, also spoken in parts of Armenia and Afghanistan.  Based on people I know here in the U.S. (and not in Armenia or Afghanistan), immigrants who speak Farsi and are from those other countries often call themselves Persian-Armenian or Persian-Afghani.

Must be an association that goes way back, and I don't have the details.

I recognize the difference when I hear it, but can't read either one of them!
