OVERSEAS SOMALIA AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS.

Rapid establishment of communication is essential to facilitate worldwide relief actions. 

Xiriir deg deg ah oo lataago ayaa lagama maarmaan ah si loo fududeeyo howlaha gar gaarka caalamiga ah.

The stations of the amateur services because of their widespread distribution and their demonstrated capacity in such cases can assist in meeting essential communication needs. 

In iyadoo la eegayo daruufahaas raadiye yaasha amitarka ah ee adeegyada bixinaya iyo waliba sida baaxada wayn ee ay wax uqaybinayaan iyo baaxada ay kamuujinayaan xaaladahan waxay gacan kagaysan karaan inay soo buuxiyaan baahida loo qabo isgaarsiinta.

LOCAL SOMALIA AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS.

Amateur Radio Operators are volunteers developing worldwide friendship through radio communications and experimentation. Trying ideas like connecting a computer to a 2-way radio, using the 171-year-old emergency skills of Morse code and talking across the world, to the space station, the Moon and soon to people on Mars. 

Hagayaasha raadiyaha amitarka ah waa kuwo iska hiwaayad ah oo isla markaas xirfado ka abuuranaya xaqaaiq badnan oo ay isgaarsiintu leedahay. Kambayuutaka leh isgaarsiinta laba gacmoodlaha ah oo loo marayo raadiyaha, qalabka korontada ku shaqeeya, tijaabooyinka, saaxiibtinimada caalamiga ah, adeega dad waynaha, taleefishinka amitarka, qoraalada lasooguuriyey, talefishinka labogacmoodle ah eesawirada muujiya, satarlaadyada hawada kujira ee raadiyaha amitarka ah, isgaarsiinta isteeshinada hawada, isgaarsiinta fogaanta dheer ee loo adeegsanayo nidaamka codka iyo midkamorseka ee lagu maamuuso xaaladaha deg degta ah.

Your involvement is helping Somali radio enthusiasts develop their nationwide and international message handling skills. When the public needs help, HAM (Helping All Mankind and woMankind) radio operators are here. 

Howshaadu waa kaalmaynta dalka Soomaaliya raadiye xiiseeyeyaashan waxay kororsanayaan xirfado caalami ah ooy dadkooda wax ugu qabtaan, marka dadwaynu ay kaalmo ubaahanyihiin. Ham oo micneheedu yahay (kaalmaynta dhamaan aadanaha) hadaba raadiye haga yaashu waa diyaar marwalba.

AMATEUR RADIO EMERGENCY PUBLIC RADIO AND TV BROADCASTS.

Meesha laga dhagaysto warmaalmeedka amitar radiyooga iyo akhbaaraha musiibooyinka.

 

In Somalia this license also allows something not available to amateurs in other countries: 

Marka Soomaaliya loo soo laabto shatigaani waxa uu ogolaanayaa.

 

The operation of an amateur hobby radio or TV broadcasting station by an individual for the purpose of self-training in broadcasting techniques using certain broadcasting frequencies outside the normal international two-way amateur radio bands.  

Ku shaqeynta shati haystaha hiwaayadda uleh- raadiyaha ama xarunta war baahinta ee TV-ga oo uu markaasi qof ka shaqeynayo asgoo ku wajahan aqoon kakoror- siga farsamada saxaafadda asagoo markaasi isticmaalaya mowjado war baahineed oo ka baxsan mowjadaha uu ku shaqeeyo shati haystaha raadiyaha caadiga ah. 

 

This is not a community, commercial business or government broadcast station but is known as an amateur hobby radio or TV broadcast station and is done for the pleasure of operating on the air and self-training in broadcasting techniques. 

Arintaani ma ahan mid ay leedahay qoowmiyad gaar ah kuwo ganacsi, ama xarun saxaafadeed balse waxaa loo yaqaanaa raadiyaha tababarka hiwaayadeed. Sidoo kale xarumaha warbaahinta ee TV-yada waxaa loo sameeyaa ayadoo ladoonayo inlooga shaqeeyo tababara lagu baranaayo sida hawada loo galo.

 

An amateur hobby radio or TV broadcast station is not allowed to broadcast commercial, political, religious, advertising or be used for business money-making activity. Money-making activities require a community, commercial or government radio broadcast station license. 

Raadiyahaan hiwaayadeed ama xarunta war faafinta TV-ga loo ma ogola iney baahiyaan amuuraha ku taxaluqa ganacsiga, siyaasada diinta xayeysiinta iyo in waliba loo isticmaalo hawlaha faaiido doonka sida kuwa ubaahan dadka, beecmushtarka ama shatiga (aqoonsi) ay bixiso.xarunta war faafinta ee dowladi ay leedahay.

 

The Somalia emergency radio communications plan makes possible local emergency broadcasts by licensed Somalia ham radio stations that can be heard by all aid agencies and the general public using standard AM radio, FM radio or TV receivers. 

This is especially useful where existing radio or TV broadcasting stations have been destroyed or are none existent.

Specific information about the disaster relief needs and the specific locations where the public are being assisted can be broadcast and heard on standard AM radio, FM radio or TV receivers so that the relief agencies working in the field and all new incoming relief agencies can better coordinate the deployment of their resources using the latest information.

This plan is also useful in refugee camps, internally displaced camps and in humanitarian aid distribution centres by using existing radio receivers or by providing donated AM/FM radios that would allow the public to better understand and participate in the orderly distribution and collection of aid.
