SAC 2022 cancelled

Let us say loud and clearly; No one is more sad of this situation than us, the SAC CC members, who only want to make a good Contest experience.

SAC CC consists of four members from four different Nordic countries and the individual countries’ organizations have different ideas about how to handle the ongoing war in Ukraine in the context of amateur radio contesting often referred as radiosport.

Each of us had to follow the statements of our respective organizations and we had no other solution than to cancel 2022 Contests.

We have no further comments.

On behalf of the SAC CC

Scandinavian Activity Contests 2022 CANCELLED

The SAC Contest Committee has unanimously decided to cancel this year’s two sections of the Contest.
Our decision has been made due to the ongoing war in the region and in consideration of the IARU declaration about friendship between people. 
We hope that the situation will change for the better, so that we can once again compete against each other as the SAC rules dictate.

From the IARU web page (
“IARU is an apolitical organization focused on promoting and defending amateur radio and the amateur radio services. The amateur radio service is about self-instruction in communications and friendship between people.”
