POLAR BATTLE UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
STARTS THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, AT 12.00 UTC
The Scandinavian Activity Contest (SAC) is a matter of equality when
some two-hundred Polar Contesters gather, gaze under the Aurora Borealis
and flex their muscles under somewhat equal conditions. The snow is now
settling at 60 degrees North, and the Polar bears are already preparing
their dens and fattening up for their long and dark winter rest.
But at 1200 UTC Saturday, October 13, the Polar People will be at it
for 24-hours solid with no rest. Go and get them all – The Scandinavians --
and provide them some radio meat during their winter preparation. These
include the LA, OH, OZ and SM folks, as well as the rarer OH0, OY, JW
and TF types.
The Radio Arcala flagship, OH8X will be piloted by Pasi, OH6UM while
the Aland Island outpost, OH0X, will be activated by OH2BH, OH2GEK, OH2MM,
OH2UA and OH8NC. You may also catch the seasoned Azores Island site, CR2X,
beaming North, remotely controlled from the Aland Islands. OH8X QSL via
OH0XX, OH0X QSL via OH2TA and CR2X via OH2BH.
The recent OH0T operation by OH2GEK and OH6VDA was to prepare the actual
event. OH0T QSL via OH2GEK.
So go and get them all – and salute your Northern friends.
