Paperwork needed:
Paper work is available from the ARRL or possibly your league (at least in Finland) or the French PTT. CEPT agreement applies to this territory and licensing according to T/R 61-01 is valid. (See CEPT)
The best way to get a license:
Warning, to obtain this license in time for departure get it LONG in advance. Or better yet, if possible a contact in France (preferably Paris) can obtain the ticket. License in hand upon arrival may prevent the confiscation of your radio amateur gear in ANY OUNTRY.
The cost I believe is about 70 FF or about twenty (closer to fifteen) dollars US (1994).
