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 each activation of the goal is to work as many QSO:s as possible. For those interested in working the call, 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 2018 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! 🙂
