Regardless of appellations used in the licence, a station transmitting for
pure amateur pleasure with no professional/commercial intent is by all
standards of English usage...

an "amateur radio station"...[your honor, My Lord, Judge, Maitre, Ref.  )
etc.

Hi John and Group
My licence EI2AE says Experimenters Licence and not Radio Amateur Licence.
I
expect all EI licences say the same.
Maybe it has been changed to accommodate recripocal licensing arrangements
with other countries that specify Radio Amateur Licence. The main point
being that anyone can interwork between EI and the rest of the world, so
by
the same logic I do not think there would be a problem in the UK working
an
experimental type station in the USA or elswhere.
The problem might be at your end if it specifically states only inter PART
15 contacts.
So you take a chance or you  dont!!!!!!!! If we were all closed down would
it make that much difference!!
