AZORES POISED TO HIT HARD AT ARRL SSB DX CONTEST
The group out of Radio Arcala and their associates will put the Azores on
the air on a variety of bands for the ARRL SSB weekend. CU2CE, CU2DX, OH2BH
and OH8NC will be at the controls to provide you with an elusive Azores
multiplier under a callsign not determined yet. Please update your CTY files
to take note of the fact that the CR2 prefix along with the traditional CU2
will represent this Azorean outpost, the westernmost point of Europe, one
hour behind UTC time.
Soon Radio Arcala is scheduled to hold their Annual Meeting in the Azores
and may activate several stations for the WPX SSB contest. The meeting is
expected to have on its agenda the important issue of broadening the scope
of the original Arcalians and their mission by inviting several
international partners to join the radio operator team and to enter into
Radio Arcala technology partnerships.
