Amateur Radio In Ukraine
“Any radio amateur currently transmitting from Ukraine is risking his or her life. If you hear a Ukrainian station, do not broadcast its callsign, location or frequency — whether on the band, in a cluster or on social media. You may be putting lives at risk.” – IARU-R1
Amateur Radio Ukraine
With traditional means of communication such as phone and internet lines often cut off, eventually, Amateur Radio could become an essential lifeline for many people in the country.
When permitted at a later date, Amateur Radio operators could help connect people in a number of ways, including by providing information, news and even helping to coordinate humanitarian aid efforts. In addition, Amateur Radio operators would be able to connect people with loved ones who are displaced or in areas that are cut off from communication. This would be extremely helpful. As the conflict in Ukraine continues, we’ll be on the sidelines waiting for when Amateur Radio can be used.
For now keep checking the links below for updates. I am sure in the future Amateur Radio operators will play an important role helping to connect people and provide vital information and assistance.
