Bhutan A51JS 1990

When Jim, VK9NS operated from The Kingdom of Bhutan in 1990, amateur radio had been silent from there for over eight years. It was this fact which had made Jim make enquiries, and after many telephone calls and letters to and from, he was invited to visit Bhutan. The invitation included wording about amateur radio so Jim travelled there with some confidence.

Once there, Jim obtained written authority and permission to operate amateur radio and was on the air in Thimphu, from 22 March to 10 April 1990 as A51JS.
