CQ policy on stations in Crimea using Russian-issued call signs in CQ contests

After considerable deliberation, CQ has determined that the best course of action regarding Crimea and CQ contests is to follow the lead of the United Nations and the United States government, both of which continue to consider Crimea to be part of Ukraine, until such time as the political situation there is resolved. Therefore,

Logs will not be accepted for any CQ Contest from stations in Crimea operating with Russian-issued call signs. Contacts made by others with those stations will be removed from contestants’ logs without penalty. No contact or multiplier credits will be given.

We fully realize that our action may very well disenfranchise several Crimean contesters who use Russian prefixes instead of Ukrainian prefixes. As regrettable as that may be, our action is consistent with international law, as well as with our own Rules.

It seems the world political scene impacts Amateur Radio in many unforeseen ways.  “CQ” Magazine’s policy on Crimean stations using Russian-issued call signs now aligns with previous actions from “QST” and the U.S. State Department.  “CQ” says its action is in accordance with International Law and its own internal policies.
