Author Topic: Foreigner in US with top reciprocal privs and a less-privileged US license?  (Read 1997 times)

Here's a question posed to me and I was wondering if anyone could point me to ARRL or other reference material on this situation:

A Czech citizen has a US General Class License.

The same guy has a Czech license and callsign, with the highest Czech privileges.

If he didn't have a US General Class license, this Czech visiting the US could operate as W3/OK1** and get full Extra class privileges thanks to CEPT. Reference: http://www.arrl.org/cept

Does him having a US General Class license, stop him from operating as W3/OK1** with full Extra Class privileges?

Can he legally operate using his US General Class callsign (shows up as General in all databases) with full Extra Class privileges?

First paragraph 97.107
No citizen of the United States or person holding an FCC amateur operator/primary station license grant is eligible for the reciprocal operating authority granted by this section.

Thank you for quoting chapter and verse!

Maybe we can get this Czech guy to an Extra exam while he’s visiting.
