The best way to get a license:
EX0A writes: "Now we haven't any special procedure for getting licence for foreign radio amateurs. Usually for obtaining licence foreign HAM contacted his radio friends in Kyrgyzstan or our Radio Amateur Union of Kyrgyz Republic. Callsign for foreign is: EX/homecall. Class of licence - same as in home country. My advice: if somebody need official licence please contact official person in our RadioAmateur Organisation: it is I - EX0A (my E-mail address is
EX0A at ), EX0M - Serge or EX2M George. Also we can help with documents which need any foreign person for getting VISA (invitation etc). Also we can help with accomodation and with shack."

Hi, Scott.
We can help you to get license. Unfortunately there is very old information about it on QSL net site. We have new regulations now. It takes about 3 month to get license, but if you send us all documents we can try to agree local authorities do it faster.
We need following documents:
1. Copy of passport.
2. Copy of license.
3. Address in Kyrgyz Republic (where you are going to operate from)
4. 2 photos.
5. List of equipment which you going to import to Kyrgyz Republic.

You can send all this by e-mail to me, or Serge EX0M, his e-mail:
ex0m at or guzevsm at


Our telefone numbers in Bishkek: George Lazerev: +996-28-28-47 (home) and Serge +996-720-233 ??
