    Following the inquiry of the Administration of Serbia of 16 March 2018
    regarding the use of Call Sign Series Z6 by amateur radio stations of
    Kosovo*, I would like to provide the following statement:

    Pursuant to Article 19 of the Radio Regulations, notably its
    provisions Nos. 19.28B and 19.33, the management of international series
    of call signs is a prerogative of ITU. Call sign series can be allocated
    only to the administrations of the ITU Member States by world
    radiocommunication conferences or, between radiocommunication
    conferences, by the ITU Secretary-General. In this respect, the
    attention of the ITU administrations is drawn to the fact that ITU has
    not allocated call sign series Z6 to any of its Member States.
    Consequently, the utilization of call signs series Z6 by any entity
    without a formal allocation and consent of the
    ITU represents an unauthorized and illegal usage of this international
    numbering resource.

    * This designation is without prejudice to position on status, and is in
    line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ opinion on Kosovo declaration of
