I have in the past operated from Tuscany in Italy, where I signed as I/DM1CM.

While operating there, I received numerous calls telling me that I should be operating as I5/DM1CM, the "I5" being the regional prefix for Italian stations operating from Tuscany. So, is "I/DM1CM" or "I5/DM1CM" correct?

In fact, the regulations for CEPT licensees operating from other CEPT countries are very clear on this point: "I/DM1CM" is the correct way to sign in this case.

Referring to the document "Recommendation T/R 61-01" issued by the CEPT ECC (Electronic Communications Committee) , Section 2 "Conditions of Utilisation", Subsection 2.3:

"When transmitting in the visited country the licence holder must use his national call sign preceded by the call sign prefix of the visited country as indicated in ANNEX 2: and ANNEX 4:. The call sign prefix and the national call sign must be separated by the character “/” (telegraphy) or the word “stroke” (telephony)."

ANNEX 2 in that document gives the call sign prefix for Italy as simply "I".

So, the following examples should make the situation clear:

  • DM1CM operating from Tuscany, Italy should sign as I/DM1CM, NOT as I5/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from Crete, Greece should sign as SV/DM1CM, NOT as SV9/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from mainland Finland should sign as OH/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from Aaland Islands, Finland should sign as OH0/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from Arizona, USA should sign as W7/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from Wake Island should sign as KH9/DM1CM;
  • DM1CM operating from Bonaire should sign as PJ4/DM1CM,
