DD2CW/Jef and ON6UQ/Marcel
As usual they flew from Brussels to Skavsta Airport in Sweden. This year, Wednesday October 26, ON6UQ/Marcel flew from Eindhoven to Skavsta and DD2CW/Jef from München to Arlanda Airport. Marcel rented a car and drove to Stockholm/Arlanda and picked up Jef and they started their trip north up to Njurunda and Utanede.
Early on Thursday morning they made a stop in Njurunda to meet SM3LIV/Ulla and SM3FJF/Jörgen. They got the key to the Visiting Amateur Radio Station and of course a cup of coffee and sandwiches. On their way to SI9AM they also made a short stop at supermarket to buy food for the next days.
It did not take many minutes after the arrival at SI9AM before they were QRV on the frequencies. You could follow them on the cluster, where they were spotted a lot of times.
On Saturday at 00.00 Z the CQ WW DX Contest on SSB started. During these 48 hours they worked 3019 QSOs, 99 zones, 232 country multipliers, total 1.965.120 score.
They did a very good job and now we hope that they also this year will win the first place in the class Multi Operator/Single Transmitter.
Thanks for visiting SI9AM and welcome back again Jef and Marcel!
