Via Southgate: 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 (https://www.iaru.org/2022/statement-from-iaru/)

“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.”

Decided on July 15, 2022 by:
LB8DC Morten Kvernmoen
OH2BH Martti Laine
SM5AJV Ingemar Fogelberg
OZ2I Henning Andresen
