Welcome back again - Guest Operators from Belgium and Germany


For the seventh time they came back to SI9AM.


ON6UQ/Marcel and DD2CW/Jef for the seventh year, SWL ONL741/Dirk for the third year and ON7TQ/Roger for the second year. The group are now called “The R-Team” at home in Belgium. During the weekend they worked CQ World Wide DX Contest on SSB from SI9AM in the Multi Single Class.


On Wednesday the 22 October they guys arrived to Stockholm by flight. With a rented car they continued towards Utanede. In Njurunda they made a short stop at SM3LIV/Ulla and SM3FJF/Jörgen. They were served coffee and sandwiches. SA3AWT/Peller and his YL Kicki also took the opportunity to say hallo to DD2CW/Jef who they met during the summer at Jefs Gasthof “Zum Ochsen”, which is about 150 km from Friedrichshafen. Later in the evening when “The R-Team” arrived to SI9AM they were directly QRV on the amateur radio bands.


Every year on October 23 the Thai people celebrate the life and reign of King Chulalongkorn on the anniversary of his death in 1910. So this day it was a ceremony in Thai Pavilion to the memory of King Chulalongkorns death. The guys attended the ceremony in the pavilion. Read more.
