Donetsk People's Republic

No QRZ entry yet.

This is not a long range call, but a politically significant one. Donetsk is one of the disputed Ukrainian territories and wikipedia is a good source of background. It is a massively complex geopolitical situation, born from the mess in the region brought about by disquiet in the Ukraine and the annexation of the Crimea.


The question of working countries not recognised by the ITU is always going to be vexed - but perhaps the best view to take is the one on the BBC coat of arms....

It might not be a bad thing if we were able to talk to North Korean hams more freely..,


The call sign that doesn't exist...

Plenty of customers for what may be a very rare QSO


The Donetsk People's Republic (DPR or DNR) (Russian: Доне́цкая Наро́дная Респу́блика, tr. Donétskaya Naródnaya Respúblika; IPA: [dɐˈnʲɛtskəjə nɐˈrodnəjə rʲɪˈspublʲɪkə]Ukrainian: Донецька Народна Республіка, Donets'ka Narodna Respublika) is a self-proclaimed state in the Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine.
