Ham Radio in China

I have never been off the continent before, and the only other country I have been to is Canada. So I think my travel experience is kind of lacking. But I can live through Randy, K7AGE, vicariously! Randy went to China some time ago, and he posted a video on his YouTube channel.From the description on the video:

I visited Beijing China during the first week in March 2008. I was able to visit with several Beijing hams, their homes, the CRSA and a club station. I had a great day. Hams are great the world over!

There is also a link to an article written by Larry, KH6ITY, that talks more about Ham Radio in China, but it seems to be a dead link. If anyone knows where to find the article now, please let me know.


Rich also writes a Tech blog and posts stories every Tuesday and Thursday on Q103, Albany’s #1 Rock Station website, as well as Amateur Radio stories every Monday thru Friday on AmiZed Studios and hosts a podcast called The Kim & Rich Show with his fiance’ Kim Dunne

    Glad you enjoyed my trip to China. The Guys there are great. Thanks for the info on the broken link. I found a new link at ARRL

    Sweet! Thanks Randy.


  • Ac2ev:

    Really enjoyed the article. I’ll be China for a couple months for work. If time permits I’ll look up the CRSA. I’m glad you put in that one bit about not bringing in your own equipment as I was planning on bringing a HT with me. Does the CSRA require the large version of the license or is the wallet size license ok?
