    DX Summit Blocking Cluster Spots From Warring European Nations/Regions

    Posted: 03 Mar 2022 08:33 AM PST http://cqnewsroom.blogspot.com/2022/03/dx-summit-blocking-cluster-spots-from.html

    DX Summit has announced that it is blocking posts from all countries and regions involved in the current war in Ukraine, partially at the request of
    the Ukrainian government and partially of its own accord. The following statement was released today:

    A message from the operators of the DX Summit http://www.dxsummit.fi/

    A state of emergency was declared in Ukraine just prior to the Russian
    military invasion. Among other things, the February 24 decree from
    President Volodymyr Zelensky will remain in effect for at least 30 days
    and may be extended. The state of emergency includes “a ban of amateur
    radio transmissions”.

    As per Ukrainian presidential office request, we will be removing the
    Ukrainian callsigns from the DX Summit.

    DX Summit wants to avoid being an advertising medium for war and war
    related messages of any kind. As a result, we see it reasonable to block
    out all cluster posted messages related to this unfortunate event.

    In addition, as of this moment, we are also blocking callsigns and
    messages posted by hams from the invading countries and regions such as
    Russia, Belarus and Donetsk (D1).
