OPENING FOR WORLD'S NORTHERNMOST CONTEST TEAM, OH8X

Far above 60 degrees North in the icy arctic reaches of Northern Finland
lies a log house with an original Finnish sauna and cozy sleeping quarters
along with the radio station OH8X with its massive antennas springing up
from the barren tundra. See www.radioarcala.com

Should you like to experience the deep North with its blazing Aurora
Borealis coupled with unique polar openings to the United States, this is
your chance. Radio Arcala will host four or five younger contest types
participating as a multi team in the ARRL DX (CW) Contest on the weekend of
February 20-21, 2010. The event will start Thursday evening on the 18th and
finish on Monday the 22nd. SSB/WARC operating will also be available on
those days, including on a limited scale during the contest weekend.

Your destination will be the city of Oulu from where we will take care of
you. Just drop us a note and explain your desire as well as your potential
as an operator on a multinational CW team. Send your email to team leader
Marius Hauki, LB3HC [mhauki@gmail.com] and he will give you more details.
Please contact Marius soonest but no later than January 30th.

You may also approach your favorite Contest Club and/or contest operators in
your area for their expected support in making your trip a reality. You
would owe them an adventure report upon your return.
