SARFEN.
 
SARFEN was formed on the 1st September 2004 to represent all Somalia amateur radio operators and persons interested in Amateur Radio.

Like the American Radio Relay League 
who adopted a name that says something about what hams do, the name Somalia Amateur Radio Friendship and Emergency Network was adopted for the same purpose. 
 
A major value ham radio offers to Somalia is the opening of friendships world wide.

 
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN SARFEN AND HELP BUILD SOMALIA.
 
 
SARFEN will explain the special purpose of the Amateur Radio license to the new Somalia Governments so they understand why:

1. Somalia Amateur Radio Licences should be issued free of charge because it is not a money making license.

2. SARFEN conducts free Somalia amateur radio license courses and issues free certificates to those who successful complete its Somalia amateur radio license qualifying courses.

3. SARFEN issues free Somalia lifetime amateur radio licenses and call signs as authorised by the Government licensing agency to those successfully completing its Somalia amateur radio license qualifying course.
This allows licensing on the same day students complete the course.

4. SARFEN issues free Somalia lifetime visitor amateur radio licenses and call signs authorised by the Government licensing agency to visitors holding any class of foreign Amateur Radio License:

     a. As a courtesy to welcome all visitors to Somalia and
     b. To encourage visitors to return to Somalia.

This allows the issue of the Somalia visitor amateur radio license on the same day visitors arrive in Somalia.

5. SARFEN issued amateur radio licenses and call signs are

     a. Kept up to date, 
     b. Listed on the Internet and 
     c. Supplied to the Government licensing authority under whose authority SARFEN issues those amateur radio licenses and call signs free of charge.

From 1993 to 2004, Sam Voron VK2BVS, 6O0A, 6O1A of Sydney, Australia performed free of charge the functions of issuing:

     a. Certificates to persons who successful completed the Somalia Amateur Radio License Qualifying Course SARLQC and 

     b. Lifetime 6O0 and 6O1 Somalia call signs to students who successfully completed the Somalia Amateur Radio License Qualifying Course SARLQC,

     c. Lifetime 6O0 and 6O1 Somalia call signs to visitors holding a foreign amateur radio license.

When the national amateur radio organisation SARFEN was formed on the 1st. September 2004 Sam Voron transferred his responsibilities to them as was authorised in the authority given to him.

6. SARFEN acts to maintain and improve the amateur radio regulations that have been in use in Somalia to this time to establish Somalia as the best country in which to conduct Amateur Radio research.


SARFEN will work to:

1. Represent Somalia at International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) radio conferences by becoming a member of the IARU.
It is seeking help to cover the payment of the yearly IARU membership fee and costs to attend international amateur radio conferences where SARFEN will represent Somalia.
In Somalia all radio amateurs automatically become members of SARFEN at no charge.
With no income SARFEN needs support to help it represent Somalia at the International level.

2. Attend United Nations International Telecommunication Union (ITU) World Administrative Radio Conferences (WARC) as part of the delegation with Somalia Government officials so as to consult with them on matters that affect Amateur Radio regulations.

3. Ensure Somalia has the best amateur radio regulations that will:

     a. Promote national development through the study of the Somalia Amateur Radio License qualifying course and

     b. Attract International visitors by making Somalia the best holiday destination for foreign amateur radio visitors.
This will give Somalia amateur radio operators the benefit of free international training, experience and encourage the donation of equipment that is needed to help get licensed Somalia amateur radio stations on the air.



SARFEN will promote: 

A. A Somalia national emergency Amateur Radio communications network that is able to deploy volunteers with radio equipment into disaster areas within Somalia and overseas and that can provide:

B. Emergency communications for agencies or persons involved in emergency, disaster or humanitarian relief activities and

C. Heath and welfare communications for communities, agencies and persons involved in emergency, disaster or humanitarian relief efforts or in temporary situations where regular communications is overloaded, has failed or is none existent. 

D. Skill in passing messages (called third party messages) through amateur radio stations between members of the general public so that during disasters radio amateurs already have some experience in interacting with the public. This is allowed so long as such messages are: 

     (1). Handled free of charge and amateur radio operators receive no compensation.

     (2). Such messages must be of a personal nature and not involve business, commercial or financial matters. 

     (3). Are messages that would not normally be made over public or private telephone or business radios.

     (4). Such messages can be exchanged with any country that has no objection. 

     (5). The use of amateur radio frequencies to handle the day-to-day activity of any organisation or business is not allowed.

E. All aspects of amateur radio throughout Somalia and highlight its free communications system that is designed to promote friendship between the citizens of every nation.

F. Amateur radios capability in the peace process through its ability to bring all Somalis together by its inclusion of volunteerism and the HAM (Helping All Mankind and womankind) ethic that is included in the HAM RADIO license training course.

G. Amateur Radio Training throughout Somalia, in organisations, schools, collages, clubs and homes.

H. Other organisations to work with SARFEN to introduce the benefits of this training to other countries especially in Africa where Amateur Radio is unknown to the local population.

I. The development of ideas, proposals and programs where amateur radio can be of further benefit to the nation and the world.

J. To establish an amateur radio station at a national SARFEN office that can be used-
