The Yasme Foundation Board of Directors has approved a grant to be used to purchase amateur radio transceivers for three members of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society. Ethiopia came back on the air in 2011 with the re-opening of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society station ET3AA. The Yasme Foundation issued a grant to pay the fees associated with licence examinations for 25 members of that club but under Ethiopian regulations they could not receive a licence without proof of ownership of an amateur radio station. This latest Yasme grant is a step in getting individual Ethiopian amateurs back on the air.
