SJ7SOP is a special callsign used for operation in connection to the Sea of Peace (SOP) award during the month of July. I am the operator of the call during the activity and has been using the call since 2013. The call have mostly been active on digital modes (PSK31/63/125, RTTY and JT65/9).
The Sea of Peace activity for 2013 produced over 350 QSO:s while the 2014 activity produced less than 200 QSO:s. For 2015 the count was 400 QSO:s which is the top score so far! Logs are searchable at Clublog.org and hrdlog.net.
For the activation of 2017 the plan is to work as many QSO:s as possible and also add some more
SSB voice activity to the schedule. For those interested, more info will be posted to the blog before the activity season begins.
You can read more about the SOP-award here.

QSL and confirmation
For you who interested in receiving a paper-QSL for a contact made during 2017 is kindly asked to request this in the QSO, by sending a paper-QSL yourself first or by sending me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Paper-QSL will normally be sent via the bureau. IRC coupons is rejected and unfortunately not valid for use with the Swedish postal service. A request for direct QSL will be taken into consideration in every separate case, as I can´t meet every request and the cost for these.
However, EQSL:s will be sent for all contacts made during the activity.
For more information about the award, see the SOP website.
Hope to meet you on the air in July! 🙂
