In April, a VE team consisting of U.S.-licensed hams administered FCC license exams to three Cambodian nationals affiliated with the National Polytechnic Institute of Cambodia. Two earned Technician Class licenses and one, a professor, went all the way to Extra Class.
They will now be able to apply for reciprocal licenses in their own country. Examiner Mike Adams, KH0AS/XU7AJA, said he hopes this will help persuade government officials that there is a demand for amateur radio licenses among Cambodians.
