Subject: [amsat-bb] Third Party questionnaire

I could use a little help. I'm trying to get an idea of which countries
permit third party traffic (communications by an unlicensed person while
under the control of a licensed operator). It would appear that the full
gambit exists. Some countries do not permit third party with any
unlicensed individual. Some countries permit just a select list of
countries that they have agreements with and others permit third party
traffic with anyone (as long as the other party's country does not
prohibit). So, could a few kind souls answer these questions to with
accurate information about various countries regulations?

1. Does your country permit third party traffic between stations within
your country?

2. Does your country permit third party traffic between your station and
a station outside your country?

2a. If so, which ones?

3. Does your country have a link to the regulation regarding third party
traffic (please provide)?

For example, the answers for the USA would be:
1. Yes

2. Yes (just specific countries)
2a. Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Belize, Bolivia,
Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Federal Islamic
Republic of Comoros, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic,
Ecuador, El Salvador, The Gambia, Ghana, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana,
Haiti, Honduras, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan, Liberia, Republic of the
Marshall Islands, Mexico, Federated States of Micronesia, Nicaragua,
Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, St. Christopher and Nevis, St.
Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sierra Leone, South Africa,
Swaziland, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, United Kingdom (special event
stations with call sign prefix GB followed by a number other than 3),
Uruguay, and Venezuela. The United Nations also has arrangements with
the United States to permit an amateur station regulated by the FCC to
exchange messages for a third party with amateur stations 4U1ITU in
Geneva, Switzerland, and 4U1VIC in Vienna, Austria


Of particular interest are countries that do not prohibit third party at
all (like Canada and New Zealand). I'd like to compile a list of these
countries in addition to identifying countries that do permit third
party traffic with agreements and possibly try to add more countries to
their list. This could be very helpful when supporting education events
where unlicensed kids might participate.
