Radio Fallout from Ukraine Invasion Expands

Newsline reports that Russia and Belarus have been indefinitely suspended from the CEPT, the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations, in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine. This affects amateur radio operation in Europe, as CEPT members accept amateur licenses from other member countries. 

This action suspends the automatic authority of hams from Russia and Belarus to operate in other parts of Europe, and of hams from other CEPT signatories (including the U.S.) to operate in Russia and Belarus.
