SAQ will not air this Christmas.
Covid-19 is currently, again, spreading around the world, also to Sweden and to Grimeton.
Due to Covid-19 infection in the Alexander team, SAQ will not be able to air on Christmas Eve morning, Dec 24th, 2022. No one is seriously ill, only mild symptoms, however, we can not put anyone in the team at risk.
For that same reason, the radio station will be closed for visitors and SK6SAQ will not be QRV, on that same day.
We feel very sorry for this and ask for everyone’s understanding.
From the whole Alexander team at World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station, we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
