Paperwork needed:
Bring a photocopy of your ham license and a photocopy of your passport.
The best way to get a license:
Bring these to the radio club of the major city that you intend to visit. Present these documents. The club will forward the documents to the Radio Club of Bolivia, and you may operate with a /CP on your callsign.
The information published in the last RADIOAMATÖÖRI says in an story about OH0XX's contest operation from CP6AA that the Bolivian PTT is "about" to change their system and give authorization to CP6AA to handle visitor's licenses. This information has not been verified by anyone else. The address of CP6AA is the following: CP6AA: BOX 393, SANTA CRUZ, BOLIVIA; SEP-1990 1404Z, same from HamCallTM Query

Places to operate from:
I received this information from a former president of the Radio Club of Cochabamba and their club's secretary. I was told that I could mail the documents to the Radio Club of Cochabamba before my trip, and they will have my permit ready upon arrival. But, bringing the documents is adequate. This information was accurate as of April 1999. Feel free to contact me for more information. vy 73 de David AE4LH
