IARU Welcomes Two New Member-Societies

The IARU member-societies have voted to admit two new members for Kyrgyzstan and Bahrain.

The Amateur Radio Union of the Kyrgyz Republic (ARUKR) was founded in 1993; more information is available at

The Bahrain Amateur Radio Society (BARS) was organized in 2020 and replaces a previous association that no longer exists.

Contact information has been posted at:

Adoption of a proposal for membership requires the affirmative votes of a majority of the member-societies that have participated in recent votes. Currently there are 105 such member-societies. With 53 affirmative votes required for passage there were 70 for ARUKR and 71 for BARS, and no negative votes or abstentions.

The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) is the peak body for Amateur Radio in Australia. The WIA voted in favour of admitting these two member societies and welcomes them to the IARU.

Congratulations to the officers and members of our newest member-societies!
