To get the IARP (International Amateur Radio Permit) you need to be citizen of one of the American countries being signatures of the IARP treaty. If you don't go to Buenos Aires city, the best way to get a license is send in advance a copy of all the papers via FAX with a letter explaining the situation to LU4AA Radio Club Argentino (FAX # +54-11-4305-0505) or via e-mail : lu4aa at lu4aa.org and they surely help you with the license. I'm not sure if this information is usefull but Mr Luis Calabrese speaks only Spanish and French.
If you need any other information or want to ask me something, please don't hesitate tokeep in touch with me.
