However, it seems that the police/military have been in touch with the licencing department, and instructed that I should not be allowed to operate on any bands where ham radio is not the primary user.
What does this mean? Well, I am denied to operate on 472 KHz, 60m and 6 metre bands. But additionally, I will no longer be allowed to operate on the 80 metre and 30 metre bands, since ham radio is a secondary user on those bands in Region 3".

"Therefore, in order to provide as many QSOs as possible, from now until that cut-off time/date, I will ONLY operate on 80 and 30, using FT8 on the normal frequencies. I will monitor 80m during local night-time hours, and will monitor 30m during the local day and evening hours, i.e. from about one hour after local sunrise to about 15 UTC (or later if I can 'jump' between 30 and 80!). I will especially respond to calls from stations that I have not worked previously". QSL via LoTW, or via EA5GL.

73s.. The 3Y0J Team
EP, IRAN (News). The following was forwarded by QSL Manager Pedro, EA5GL, [edited]:
The Alborz DX group (EP2C) was founded in 2015 with the help of the 3 most active Iranian ham radio operators (EP2LMA, EP2LSH, EP2MIR). For the first time in the last decade, we managed to conduct serious ham radio activities, such as classes, field days, camps, international DXpeditions,
and IOTA activations. The most significant activities of the Alborz DX group were support and cooperation with EP6T, EP2A and EP6RRC.
In 2019, due to the expansion of activities, growth of members, and the need to communicate with national and international authorities, we upgraded to an NGO named AARS (Alborz Amateur Radio Society). Due to the growth of members and absence of any ham radio shop and also economic hardship, most of the licensed ham radio operators cannot access the required equipment and the AARS cannot fulfill their needs so all kinds of donations (money, equipment, and even printed material) will be appreciated.
You can send your donations through Paypal to: Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots. JavaScript dient ingeschakeld te zijn om het te bekijken.
With your donations:
1 - We can improve our club condition.
2 - We will be able to work on more bands with EP2C, so world hams can have more contact with EP stations.
3 - Happily will report all donations with the photos on our website. Our Website is: http://www.ep2c.ir
Thank you, Mohammad, EP2LMA, President of AARS
