Welcome to the CERAC website

 

 

 

Created on 5 May 1949, the Council of Europe is the oldest European international organisation which today includes 47 member states with its headquarters in Strasbourg (France). It has an extraterritorial jurisdiction and is an advisory member of  the United Nations within the framework of chapter VIII in the UN treaty of 1 April 1998. The Council of Europe’s Radio Club  (CERAC) was established on 26 June 1986, which is the date of the first broadcast with the prefix TP2CE (CE standing for Council of Europe).

Two years previously, two French amateur radio operators, Francis Kremer (F6FQK) and Patrick Bittiger (F2DX) were asked by the head of the Council’s audiovisual department to discuss cooperating with the organization, with the aim of promoting its non-political activities in accordance with the regulations and  amateur radio callsigns. Initially the International Union for Telecommunications was contacted in order to obtain a prefix. Given the difficulties this presented, the IUT made contact with the French Telecommunications service who gave us the official title of the radio club – TP2CE –and TP prefix which could used to mark important events involving the Council. The Radio Club operates on average between three and four weekends per year, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

 

Since 1986, radio amateurs from many different European countries have been invited to participate in different activities. The Radio Club consists of six permanent members:
