The USKA and politics

On Oct. 13, 2023, a message was posted on the USKA home page about a politician and certified radio amateur running for the Oct. 22 national and state elections.

According to its statutes, the USKA is a politically and denominationally neutral association. The board is of the opinion that we basically want to support radio amateurs and make them known to our members who are committed to political offices on the municipal, cantonal and federal level, so that they can also represent the interests of us radio amateurs in these functions. This also applies to the above-mentioned politician. However, this support may only refer to the person and not to their party affiliation.

The above-mentioned News has not fulfilled this requirement. The News has clearly made propaganda for a certain party, which was not our intention.

We would like to apologize for this incorrectness.

The Board of Directors of the USKA
