In connection with the Bicentenary of the Norwegian Constitution 1814-2014 we will celebrate by using a special prefix LI(Lima India) LI8W. Please also look for our personal call signs LJ1GB and LJ8IB during this period. They are even more rare! We hope you will enjoy the celebration on air and our QSL cards.
Special QSL cards are printed by UX5UO for the occasion.
LA Contest Club har åpnet eget bruktmarked. Det er fritt for alle radioamatører å selge, kjøpe, bytte, og gi bort alt av amatørradio-utstyr. Det koster ingenting å annonsere, pluss at det ikke finnes noe ventetid etter at administrator har godkjent annonsen. Den er synlig for alle med en gang etter godkjenning. Det er også mulig å redigere annonsen etter publisering, pluss at du kan forlenge annonsen(hvis 60 dager ikke skulle være nok) uten å måtte gå via opprettelse av en ny annonse. Sjekk ut www.contesting.no/bruktmarked/.
