D0N  14.027 Mhz CW  2200-2330+UTC REBEL STATION DONETSK PEOPLES REPUBLIC

worked on 20m CW......

sending occasional propaganda messages...but also making ham DX contacts......

earlier in june i worked D0A from Donetsk Peoples Republic.....also on 20m CW.....it was teh day of the Ukranian airport assault and he was sending "THEY ARE KILLING DONETSK"..."STOP THE MURDER OF DONTESK"...etc.....

not sure exactly where this fits on HFU...ham-clandestine-pirate-other- or ALL OF THE ABOVE !

but surely relevant, current, and interesting.....

Not sure if this is the same station but hearing a strong CW signal @ 2358 (Jul 17) on 14027. Off @ 0004 (Jul 18).
Don't know Morse code.

Hearing CW there now, not sure if this is the same station, or just normal ham comms.

Strike that, I am hearing the D0N call. Extremely strong here!

A very interesting catch, thanks!

There isn't any Donetsk People's Republic, officially. Which would imply that D0N is an unlicensed operation. Still a cool and unusual catch, and cool contact.

Closest I hear on any ham band to Ukraine is Poland, or sometimes Russia.

I'll have to listen more closely to the CW portion of the 20 meter band.

Was the station sending in English CW, or Cyrillic? Was it very fast?
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
