That can happen only at Greece....!!!!


On video above the lawyer of SV5/DJ6SI explain how the Greek court charge the German Radio amateur for his transmissions from Kos  island.  

They arrest him and (as he said)  he try to hang himself with a belt during the police operation....!!!
Unbelievable story for us all in Radio amateur Community. 
I wrote to him an E-mail just to say sorry and to be as an witness at court just to explain  to court what the Amateur Radio is.

All those years from 1962 till today
70 countries all over the world and only in Greece the authorities think that the man was a SPY....!!!!

I'm calling all radio amateurs to accept my sorry about this.

Also remind to all ham friends before to come Greece and after finishing the paper work to contact some local ham(s) to avoid possibly situation like this.
