Here, each signatory association has one vote. The two founding associations, however, each have two votes. 4.2. Each association can leave this agreement at any moment. However, this must be done in the sense of "hamspirit" so that the remaining associations suffer no damage. The remaining associations define new rules by respecting the absolute majority. 4.3. The paragraph 2.3 is not negotiable and must be retained unchanged whenever this agreement is changed. 4.4. The „LX National QSL Bureau“ is voided, if it has no member (luxembourgish amateur radio association) for more than a year.
