RECIPROCAL AMATEUR RADIO OPERATING AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF VENEZUELA
The Government of Canada and the Government of the Republic of Venezuela, taking into account that on November 22, 1961 an agreement was reached between the two countries by which amateur radio stations of each country were permitted to exchange messages proceeding from or destined to third persons and wishing to strengthen further the amicable relations existing between the two Governments and peoples, have decided to conclude an agreement by which licensed radio amateurs of one country may be authorized to operate their stations in the territory of the other country while temporarily resident therein under the following terms:
A person who is licensed by his Government as an amateur radio operator and who operates an amateur radio station licensed by such Government shall be permitted by the other Government, on a reciprocal basis and subject to the conditions stated below, to operate such a station in the territory of such other country.
The person who is licensed by his Government as an amateur radio operator shall, before being permitted to operate his station as provided for in Article I, obtain from the appropriate administrative agency of the other Government an authorization for that purpose.
The appropriate administrative agency of each Government may issue an authorization, as provided for in Article II, under such conditions and terms as it may prescribe, including the right of cancellation of said permission and the convenience of the issuing Government at any time.
This agreement shall enter into force fifteen (15) days after signature. It may be terminated by either Government on sixty (60) days notice in writing to the other.
