    Breaking News!

    We are sorry to inform you that SI9AM, the Visitor´s Amateur Radio Station in Utanede, Sweden will be closed down on December 1, 2020.

    The Visitor´s Station is owned by eight radio clubs in the third call area in Sweden. SI9AM has reported losses for several years and has not had any guest operators since February 2020 due to the Covid19 Pandemic. The board has now decided to close down the visitor station.


    We started the Visitor’s station on July 19, 2000 and have worked about 160,000 QSOs.

    Thanks to all Guest Operators, Visitors, all radio amateurs who have worked us and everyone who has supported us during the years.

    We will continue to answer QSL-cards and send SI9AM Awards.
