Special Event Stations OF9X, OH9SCL on the Air from the Land of Santa Claus

12/20/2014

The Santa Claus stations, OH9SCL (“Santa Claus Land”) and OF9X (“Old Father Nine Xmas”) are on the air! As Santa is busy loading up his sleigh preparing for his journey around the world, his elves will be at the controls of Santa Radio and can tell you Santa's whereabouts. Stop by and say hello. Santa’s journey starts from Finnish Lapland, continuing through the dangerously narrow Baltic airspace to end up on Christmas Day in the US.

Principal radio activity will be over the weekends before and after Christmas. The Santa activity should be around 25 kHz from the band edges, and the SSB pole position is at 14,225 kHz. My DX Summit will feature OH9SCL and OF9X on its Santa menu selection. Occasionally Santa will be available on video, mostly when on 20 meters SSB. Tap the Video and Audio button on the OF9X page, and you may not only see Santa but hear how your own signal sounds in the Land of Christmas.
