On the 6th May 1999 the first Scottish Parliament in 300 years was voted in by the people of Scotland. To honour this event special prefixes where issued from the 6th May 1999 to the 31st July 1999. Therefore GM4EMX became 2S4EMX.


Special Scottish Prefix Arranged by the GMDX group GMDX link

This year, 2009, is the year of Homecoming in Scotland. Homecoming is a year-long celebration aimed at attracting the Scottish ex-pats, and those interested in Scottish traditions, back to Scotland. Numerous supporting events are being held throughout the year. More info can be found at this link Home Coming Scotland

GMDX group believed that Amateur Radio should play its part. As such, GMDX with and   Ofcom agreed to special prefixes being used by Radio Amateurs in Scotland until 30 November 2009. The prefixes will be GA, MA and 2A. The A, replacing M in the prefix, signifies Alba the Gaelic name for Scotland.
