My name is Jody
I am Secretary on THE TURKS & CAICOS AMATEUR RADIO SOCIETY, and at our January 1999 meeting we voted to increase the cost for a VISITORS LICENSE from the original $21.00 to $25.00. We would appreciate it very much if you would update your information in regards to obtaining a recripocal license in VP5land. All of your other information seems to be correct.
Thank you very much in advance.
