of mothers and children  have left their home  without a father,  heading to
the safety of nearby countries and away from the war-zone.  At the same time
the Ukrainian men  stayed behind,  defending their homeland  from this unex-
pected attack on their country.
Amateur Radio was suspended in Ukraine on 24 February 2022, but now there is
an  allowance  obtained  to transmit  amateur radio  remotely,  by using  an
Ukraine CEPT license as long as  the RF emissions are not from the Ukrainian
Well-known DXpeditioner  Alex, UT5UY went on the air on  4 May as  EA4/UT5UY
using a remote station in  Madrid (Spain).  Amateur Radio  will also be used
during the upcoming  Mother's Day when Alex  will greet his wife, Sasha  and
his  12 year old son Daniel,  currently living in Finland.  This is in  line
with IARU's theme 'Never Alone', and showcasing the fact that  Amateur Radio
has an important role even during the world's most turbulent times.
You can join Alex and his family on the air, on Saturday, 7 May on 14260 KHz
at 11.00 UTC and again at 15.00 UTC,  and give Alex  your moral support that
he and his family needs during these dire times.
Alex is  ever grateful to  Fred, WW4LL from BeLoud.US,  as well as to Jerry,
WB9Z for providing him this remote station opportunity and for bringing  him
back to the amateur radio  brotherhood,  at a time when  moral and  material
support is needed the most.
Warmest regards,

ROCKALL 2022: POSTPONED ---> "Unfortunately,  it is now  highly  likely  the
Rockall trip  will be postponed  for a year",  DX World  reported on  1 May.
"Sadly, the team  has not been able  to secure  the correct type  of vessel.
Currently,  their only hope  is for  a cancellation  (of another  boat)  and
that's unlikely at this late stage. Rescheduled dates to be announced in the
future".  This year's trip was expected to take place on  6-19 June  [425DXN
1599], and Nobby, G0VJG aimed to be QRV from the island (EU-189) as MM0UKI/p

YASME FOUNDATION GRANT ---> The Board of Directors  of the  Yasme Foundation
has announced that it made a grant for  the purchase of amateur radio equip-
ment  and accessories  for the  Seychelles Amateur Radio Association  (SARA)
club station. SARA was voted into IARU membership  in late 2019.  Since that
time, membership has grown to thirty-three members, with fifteen holding S79
licenses. The club finished construction of a club building and meeting area
earlier this year.  Previous Yasme grants provided support for  license exam
fees and construction of club facilities. [TNX K4ZW]
