Turkey's Erdogan Is Trying To Stop The Signal

He has some pretty smart people working for him, I'll give him that.
Shutting down the legal Ham Radio Network is a brilliant tactical move by this jerk of a Tyrant but I'm sure there will be a few, ahem, ahh, resistors who will find a way to pirate out what's going on over there anyway.


You can't stop the signal.

Following the coup d’etat – of July 5th – many things are changing in Turkey. TV , Radio licenses have been cancelled and this involved also our colleagues : ham radio amateurs. The number of amateur radio operators in Turkey is not too much, but according to the site TRAC.org it looks like that around 3000 licenses have been revoked. Who’s transmitting outside turkey without licence should be considered a pirate – said Mr Erdogan.

The Supreme Council of radio and television of Turkey (RTUK) has cancelled the licenses of over 20 radio and television broadcasters as well ham radio operators.

The Telsiz ve Radyo Amatörleri Cemiyeti (TRAC) is the national non-profit organization for amateur radio enthusiasts in turkey. The TRAC was founded in 1962 as the Türkiye Radyo Amatörleri Cemiyeti, adopting its current name in 1980. It’s located in Istanbul, with branches in 44 locations across Turkey. TRAC is the national member society representing Turkey in the IARU. Now, it has been closed down.

We look forward to have news from Turkey ham radio league.

Turkey’s coup in numbers

21,000 private teachers have licences removed
15,000 suspended from education ministry
8,000 police officers detained or suspended
6,000 soldiers detained
1,500 staff at Ministry of Finance dismissed
3213 ham radio operators with license revoked.
2745 judges dismissed
1,577 deans – Education board demands resignation
492 sacked from Religious Affairs Directorate
399 from Ministry of Family and Social Policies stripped of responsibilities
257 fired from the prime minister’s office
100 intelligence officials sacked
47 district governors dismissed
30 provincial governors dismissed
20 news websites blocked

Looks like Erdogan is going all in on his bid to become the worlds newest dictator.

Shutting down a lot of communications avenues is his way of trying to control the narrative and shut off the flow of news of what is going on over there.
He also declared a state of emergency for the next three months.

It looks to me like he has gathered most of the ingredients to bake a full sized insurgency.
People don't like it when you pull shit like that.



On one hand, it's the smart move for a dick tater in the short run. In the long run, you can't stop the signal, ever.
Information will still be moved around, it will just take some imagination on some peoples part.

I'm sure it won't be long before there is an underground network set up complete with live feeds and video.

Foolish man.

    3. Liar, liar, pants on fire! http://www.trac.org.tr/haberler/258-update-on-ham-radio-operations-in-turkey.html

      There is no ham radio licence revoked in Turkey and ham radio operators are operating normally.

      The reports on ham radio licenses being revoked by The Supreme Council of Radio and Television (RTUK) are unconfirmed and speculative. RTUK is not a regulatory body of ham radio. We believe that it is against ham radio ethic to share unconfirmed information, especially in this sensitive time. We would like to remind every ham radio operator to avoid sharing unconfirmed news and speculation.
