OF9X Santa Claus CW Radio from Lapland Finland
I had no idea Santa had a CW station near the Arctic Circle. Much to my surprise, I heard him transmitting on the 10 meter band this morning. His helper was OF9X in Muonia Lapland Finland, who, by the way, was a courteous ‘ol fellow who actually adjusted the jolly ‘ol beam a bit to pick out my 3 watt signal from West Virginia.
What a nice Christmas gift for me!
This “Official Santa Claus HQ Station” was a joy to work, and at 4,159 miles, with 3 watts of power, qualifies for a jolly ‘ol “1000 miles per watt” contact.
Here’s a link to the “Official Radio Station”:

BTW/ He’s a good CW operator!
