Special programming and QSLing from Arctic Radio Club

Arctic Radio Club celebrates the 2017 Convention in Jönköping, Sweden May 6 and 7th. Our radio station will be on the air with many different types of programs, mostly in Swedish.

The transmitter will have a power of 250 W (ERP) on 1593 kHz and the antenna is located on a high hill near Lake Vättern. In the evening of May 5th we will start tests. There will be station identifications in English, too.

The official start will be May 6th at 1900 UTC and the programs will be running until 1100 UTC on Sunday noon. On the 7th there will be a program dedicated to the local SR P4 Radio Jönköping that celebrates its 40th year of broadcasting this year. This program starts at 1000 UTC and will be in Swedish until the station signs off at 1100 UTC. Reception reports are appreciated and a special QSL?card is issued, if you enclose return postage in your letter. Reception reports by email will be answered by an e-QSL.
