When connecting your Repeater or Gateway to some type of internet server, it is not unreasonable that the service provider might request proof of you having a valid NoV to run the station to connect to their service. It is the responsibility of the NoV holder to supply the information/proof requested, this is not something that ETCC would respond to without the permission of the NoV holder. Thank you.
