The month of July is almost around the corner and its time to prepare for the SOP-activity, 2018 edition. This year the SOP-award has its 60 year anniversary why to celebrate this occasion, a number of foreign SOP-stations have been given a special function during the activation period. SJ7SOP have been given the privilege to be one of those station which is really an big honor!
I have just completed the call sign application for SJ7SOP and will be able once again to work the call sign during the month of July. More information about how to work the call can be found on the SJ7SOP-page here on the blog.
Did you know that the SJ-prefix is actually a rare prefix in the Swedish call sign series? The prefix is, since the new guidelines from the Swedish authorities came in to place, no longer able to be assigned. Existing calls, like SJ7SOP is only allowed to be prolonged why working any of the Swedish SJ-SOP call signs is a chance to catch a rare prefix! 🙂
Now, back to preparing for the activation..
