"Andorra  C3  Sad  news  "

"Dear friends,  "

"I want to inform you, that Yesterday the"

"9th December, the URA communicated to us, prohibition to work on 60 M.  Only Associated ARDAM members like C31VM, C31CT, C31VQ and C37AC all of us have showed interest activating mentioned band, So, I can easily understand why URA didn’t showed any interest to could allow at least some channel, considering IARU has not forbidden anything, achieving good results for all amateur radio for future 2017 year.  "

"From ARDAM we are very sorry by the Amateur"

"Radio and worldwide hobby.  "

"Best regards till more news.  Good Dx you,"

"Please  consider  financial  support  of  DXpeditions   who  take  the  time  to  operate  60  meters.  Often  the   band  is  considered  too  ""specialized""  to  spend  time   on.  But  with  a  bit  of  gentle  persuasion,  teams  will   frequently  agree  to  give  the  band  a  shot.  This  can   result  in  additional  costs  for  materials  and  shipping   and  may  also  be  perceived  by  some  expeditions  as   cutting  into  their  overall  number  of  contacts.  Your   donation  goes  a  long  way  towards  saying  ""thanks""   and  encourages  teams  to  consider  the  band  again   in  the  future.  Be  sure  to  mention  your  appreciation   for  their  60  meter  efforts  in  the  comments  section    of  your  PayPal  donation.  "
