History

Bassas da India, Europa and Juan de Nova Islands became French possessions in October 1897 and have been directly governed by France since 1960-04-01.


From 1960 until 2007 Les  Îles Eparses, which includes Europa & Juan de Nova, were administered by the prefecture of Réunion, under the authority of the Minister responsible for overseas territories.During that period Reunion callsigns were used, appended with /E for Europa and /J for Juan de Nova. Since 2007-02-21, Les îles Eparses have been administered by TAAF, and the callsigns are now of the form FT#E & FT#J.
