The 1980 Summer Olympic Games was celebrated primarily in Moscow, with some events held in Tallin, Leningrad, Kiev and Minsk.
A large number of existing stations were QRV for the event, using a special prefix for the event.
100 stations were QRV from Moscow, and another 25 were QRV from each of the other cities that hosted events.
These stations were QRV from January 01 until August 03, as follows:
|Normal prefix||Special prefix||Note|
|UA||RX||2-letter suffices only|
|UA||RZ||3-letter suffices only|
In addition, the following SES stations were QRV. Note that the second letter of the prefix indicates the city:
|RM3O||European Russia||Moscow||July 01-August 03|
|RT2O||Estonia||Tallinn||July 01-August 03|
|RL1O||European Russia||Leningrad||July 15-August 03|
|RK5O||Ukraine||Kiev||July 15-August 03|
|RM2O||Belarus||Minsk||July 15-August 03|
