Liberland flag

LARA is based in Liberland, which goes hand in hand with amateur radio philosophy – to connect people independantly of their location. Liberland is a new country and also new nation in creation, whose people come together from different parts of the world, to create new community, which is uniquely formed and not necessarily bonded to its geographical borders.

Liberland radio prefix – 1L

Each country or separate territory have it’s own prefix, so the most logical thing to do was to select prefix for Liberland. Prefixes are usually assigned by ITU – International Telecommunication Union, but since Liberland is not yet member of ITU, we decided that we will adopt temporary prefix for use till or if Liberland will become member of ITU. We will also put efforts that prefix would become recognized by some international organization like IARU, CEPT or ARRL.

There are already cases of such types prefixes being used on radio bands, so our ham society isn’t first that went through same path. Most known examples of them are:

  • S0 – Westrn Sahara
  • 1A – Knights of Malta (SMOM)
  • 1S – Spratly Islands
  • 1M – Minerva Reef

After some time and consults, we have chosen prefix for Liberland.
It’s our pleasure to announce that
official temporary radio prefix for Liberland is: 1L

Usage outside of Liberland is not advised and should be in accordance with local laws and regulations of country radio station is operating from. LARA doesn’t take any responsibility for operating in conflict with the law.
