The national radio societies of Azerbaijan and St. Vincent and the Grenadines are the newest members of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU). According to the ARRL Letter, the Federation of Radio Sport of Azerbaijan (FRSA) counts all of the country's 50 licensed amateurs among its members. The St. Vincent and Grenadines Amateur Radio Club has been in existence for more than 60 years and includes 21 licensed members from the country's total ham population of approximately 134. Their applications were accepted by current IARU member societies in a vote held on November 1 and announced in mid-December.
