While doing the traffic net tonight we were talking about how we should send traffic out, just for practice on handling traffic. Some one suggested that we should use the handling instructions of “HXG” so we would get a return on the traffic. I was thinking since my sister is in Austria I was wondering if about 3rd party traffic agreements with Austria. So I ended up looking it up. What I found interesting, even though Austria is considered a friendly nation, we don’t have an agreement with them. But here were the kicker was, Cuba which is a nation that is considered an enemy nation we have agreements with. So the long and short of it is, if I wanted to send a Radio gram to my sister in Austria I can not, but if I knew some one in Cuba I could send them a message. I just found that odd, I would have guessed that things would have been the other way around.
Here is a page that lists countries we have 3rd party agreements with.
