As nobody else has constructed a poll / survey about this red hot topic, DX-World is doing it:
[FOR] A contest is basically “Radio Sport”. It might come as a surprise to some, but all other (global) sports featuring Russian or Belarussian teams have been banned from participating for “punishment” of Putin’s illegal war. So, let’s add radio contesting to the banned list.
FOR THE BAN
- YES (100%, 2,037 Votes)
Total Voters: 2,037
[AGAINST] Ham Radio has had in place since the beginning a kind of agreement that politics and radio do not mix. Basically, it’s called “Ham Spirit”. To this end, by banning (innocent) Russian and Belarussian hams is incorrect and has no place in our hobby.
AGAINST THE BAN
- YES (100%, 1,312 Votes)
Total Voters: 1,312
There can be no sitting on the fence for this. You are FOR or AGAINST.
Depending on the outcome we may email the findings to various contest committees.
