Hello to all amateur radio operators.

At my view came such information that in separatist area(Transdnestria) of MOLDOVA is working actively someone under callsign T10VB.

Moreover, this simpleton threw into the cluster that the August 31, 2013 he worked with me at 14MHz.

005.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1702Z pirat er0vb <ER1SS>
14220.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1534Z 20 years of independence Tra<ER1UVL>
14220.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1532Z NOT LICENCE NOT DXCC PIRAT <ER1SS>
14220.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1506Z QTH GOROD PSE <ER1SS>
14220.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1505Z pse qth sities loc <ER1SS>
14005.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1404Z Transnistriy ! <ER1UVL>
14005.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1345Z Pridnestrovye <ER1UVL>
18075.0 T10VB 31-Aug-2013 1242Z not Moldova pirat <ER1SS>

THE T10VB POSTED FAKE DATA INTO THE CLUSTER! I HAVE ONLY CEPT NOVICE LICENSE and not allowed to work on 20m band!

I bring to your notice that this call T10VB is illegitimate!

All call signs in the Republic of Moldova are issued only to the State Authority of radio frequencies located in Chisinau City ( http://www.cnfr.md ), Drumul Viilor 28/2 street, MD-2021.

[b]ALL MOLDOVAN CALLSIGNS STARTS WITH ER.


Be very careful when making QSO with this transdnestrian so-called T10VB.

After reading this post I had a bit of a browse like you do and theres quite a few people talking about this T10VB

One thing dodgy is he has signed up to the qrz forums here http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?40 ... &p=2937687 asking to be added to the database but this is not how it is done he should be added by another ham that knows and can vouch for him personally. this is easy as the ham who passed you or anyone at the club you did it could vouch for you.

There is a bit of a discussion going on here http://dx-world.net/2013/t10vb-transnistria/ to be honest in our country ofcom seem lax at dealing with pirates on ham bands and being an ex pirate myself that would have been good in the old days but one thing is when i was a pirate I didnt do stupid things when i was a pirate like play music or jam people or use silly voices with the sole intent of causing annoyance which is what many do now. those are not pirates but parasites and I wish hams would get out like they did in the old days and df them. not saying that this T10VB is one of them as I know nothing apart from what I read the past few minutes but putting fake details using your callsign in a log is not very good and your best course is to just contact the site its on and explain and they should remove it.

That is not exactly true..Look at

http://forums.qrz.com/forumdisplay.php? ... e9a6ba2747

Many amateurs request for thier data to be added. I from time to time add people, in the same way someone added me. It is a perfectly legitimate way of being added & that is why there is a forum for those wanting to be added this way, after all we don't all know someone who can, or will help..

This callsign looks to be legitimate..
http://dx-world.net/2013/t10vb-transnistria/

It's well known DX'er Vladimir Bykov UA4WHX & the callsign is legitimate & issued by Transnistria. It is not a Moldovan callsign..

Such callsign DOES NOT EXIST! Transnistria is not officially recognized country and its eastern region of Republic of Moldova controlled by separatist regime.

In 1991 when Republic of Moldova declared its independency from USSR, it has been recognized officially by ALL countries in the WORLD with transdnestrian region as WHOLE country with capital of Moldova being CHISINAU(KISHINEV).

ALL FOREIGN HAMS WHEN VISIT REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA(INCLUDING TRANSDNESTRIAN REGION) SHOULD USE ER/CALLSIGN

I do respect experienced amateur operators, but what was doing Mr. Bykov in regard of using T10VB is called RADIO HOOLIGANISM AND PROMOTING OF SEPARATISM.

By Legislation of Republic of Moldova all foreign ham operators must work only as ER/callsign. As example: ER/UA4WHX

All callsigns in Moldova starts ONLY with prefix ER. ER callsign can be issued only to citizens and residents of the country. Travelers can only use their homeland callsign as ER/homelandcallsign.

Amateurs have done similar things for years..
UK wise..Some radio amateurs operated on Sealand in 2000..Callsign 1SLA1..But amateurs had done it many times before, using other callsigns..Also there were the NS1 (North Sea one) calls used from the radio stations in the 70's.. Phil Perkins, G3OUV used NS1A. Ian West G3SZC used NS1C, as far as I know no action has been taken against any of the operators, it all adds to the flavour of the hobby..
Most of the offshore engineers were amateurs..And that still applies as Mike Barrington who does a lot of Engineering on Sealand is I believe an Amateur, although he is better known as a very keen SWL. Mike is a former Radio Caroline & Radio Sovereign engineer, who is also well known as being the victim of an attack by DTI officer Eric Gotts during a raid on Radio Jackie..Mike was about 14 at the time & Gotts was prosecuted successfully for the assault.

As I explained before:

All visitors of Moldova must use ER/homelandcallsign. Local callsigns are issued only to citizens and other people who has domicile in Moldova.

Looking at the history behind this issue. It would seem that it is like the problems with Northern Ireland...The area defines it's self as a separate state. It even has it's own boarder guards with Moldova, has had a bitter conflict with Moldova & runs many of it's own institutions separate to Moldovian state institutions..For example it's schools & postal services are separate..The schools all being Russian speaking..
It would seem that if many other Moldovian state controls are ignored, then radio laws are being used to make a political point, rather than a common sense one..As any country that runs it's own border guards, post offices & schools is a septate state by any reasonable standards..I bet for example China does not allow Tibet to do the above & we certainly did not have such freedoms of independent state for Northern Ireland..

Yes, they have so called governement, army, institutions. But they can travel abroad ONLY with moldovan, russian, ukrainian passports and all major transdnestrian companies uses moldovian registration and they cannot travel with their car registration numbers abroad.

WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY IT IS IF THEIR PEOPLE CANNOT TRAVEL WITH OWN PASSPORTS AND THEIR MONEY CANNOT BE USED ABROAD?

Their transdnestrian roubles can be exchanged only in bus station of Chisinau.
