“Two CW [Morse Code] stations have appeared on the higher HF bands, claiming to operate from Donetsk, as promoting a separatist ‘Peoples’ Republic of Donetsk’, or ‘NovoRossiya New Russia’.

The callsigns, D0A and 1C4M are believed to be two operators on the same transmitter. The callsigns are invalid and do not count for anything in ham radio terms.

While a QSL manager may be appointed shortly in Donetsk, communications are poor, and direct QSL is unlikely to succeed.

There is some doubt that the stations are really in Donetsk. There is evidence that they may be operating from Kazakhstan.”

Many thanks to the Southgate ARC for this news item.

Has anyone logged or recorded these pirates?
