Hi Trevor, M5AKA

The problem here in Italy is that our Communication Autority do not
recognize IARU and the IARU band.plan !

In Italy only ARI is the IARU Amateur Society representing ARI members but
here in Italy there are almost 10 different Amateur societies that are not
representing IARU and do not recognize the IARU regulations but they have
the same voice of ARI during meeting with the italian Communications

No way to solve the problem !
