GA4JPZ Scotland flag Scotland

Login is required for additional detail.


Page managed by GM4JPZ Lookups: 3008


GA is a special prefix for amateurs resident in Scotland, valid from January 25, 2014 until November 30, 2014 in honour of the Homecoming Scotland celebration, the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow this summer, and the independence referendum which was held on September 18th. The "A" in the prefix stands for Alba, the Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland. You will also hear MA, and 2A prefixes during this period.

I would like to thank KG7MAK from the QRZ.com administration  for changing the flag next to this call to the Scottish flag, as that should help to remove any confusion regarding our DXCC status. Some logging programs give GA as belonging to England, and I'm afraid QRZ.com was supporting this mistake by placing the English flag next to the call.

Full information on the special prefix can be found at:


The last time we had this special prefix was in 2009, when I worked several hundred stations. As of late September I have worked around 1200 stations with this prefix and look forward to working many more before November 30th.
