Brief history

The idea of creating EA Digital Federation was born at the end of 1990 as a result of meetings between Sysops, associations and digital ham radio groups. These meetings, called SYSEA, are the origin of the Spanish Packet Radio Network: EANET.

Finally, FEDI-EA was founded on July the 25th of 1992, approving its statutes and electing its first Board of Directors.

EA Digital Federation, as special guest of DARC, was present in the well known German fair HAM RADIO'93, where the Spanish Packet Radio Network was introduced internationally .

Concerning to the relationship with the Public Administration, specifically in telecommunications matters, FEDI-EA has been doing an spreading and approaching task, writting some reports and recommendations that it sent to DGTel in order to explain the reality of ham radio.

Nevertheless, when in 1997 BOE published regulations for packet radio relay stations, which destroyed, at once, the whole task done during more than 10 years by Spanish radio amateurs specialized in digital communications, real precursors of the internet we know nowadays, EA Digital Federation decided to start the campaign "Packet YES, Regulations NO" made up of several actions, emphasizing one: to interpose a Contentious-Administrative Appeal as the only legal means to amend the errors in the published text, defending in this way the rightful concerns of the members it represents and amateur radio in general.

From a more playful point of view, FEDI-EA organized, among others, the following events:

  • SYSEA'92 Congress, where, for the first time in Spain, brought the renowned French radio amateur Jean-Paul Roubelat, F6FBB, to talk a technical lecture about message systems, supplying, besides, a simultaneously translation service to all assistants.
  • EANET'96 International Contest, where cultural exchange was promoted among countries, reaching 75% of world wide coverage.
  • publication of DIGICLUB, the unique digital magazine for radio amateurs in this country, giving it a continuity.
