Grimeton sänder på FN-dagen den 24 oktober

Grimeton/SAQ kommer troligen att sända med sin Alexanderson alternator den 24 oktober, på FN-dagen. Vi är inte hundraprocentigt säkra på att ha tillgång till antennen, eftersom en annan organisation använder den.

– Sändningen kommer som vanligt att ske på 17,2 kHz klockan 10:00 UTC. Start och avstämning börjar 09:30 UTC. Meddelandet som sänds har skrivits av danska studenter. Denna gång efterfrågas inga lyssnarrapporter. QSL kommer inte att besvaras.
