SvalbardSMØMDG Björn and OZ1LXJ John were active from the JW5E club station in Longyearbyen, Svalbard Januari 8-13, 2009. A total of 1.011 QSO’s were logged.

  • 1002 QSO’s 160CW

The radio used was an Elecraft K3 with a TL-922 amplifier, the TX antenna was a double inverted L and for RX we added two BOI (Beverage On Ice) and a pennant.

QSL route is via homecalls, buro or direct. If you worked us both and prefer to send direct, it is enough to send to one of us.
