I år är det återigen dags att kryssa på Östersjön och vill man inte missa en sekund av programmet bör man ta sig till Helsingfors för att redan på fredagseftermiddagen borda Viking Mariella.

På lördagen ligger båten i Stockholms hamn och där är man välkommen som dagbesökare. Något som många SM brukar passa på att göra. Missa inte detta tillfälle att träffa Dx:are och contesters från när och fjärran! Snacka med din kompis och boka nu!

Påminnelse: DX & Contest-möte i Stockholm

Dear Fellow DXer, Contester!

OHDXF organizes the 21st DX & Contest Meeting during the first weekend of April. This time we will have the traditional cruise from Helsinki to Stockholm and back. The departure date is Friday the 5th and the arrival on Sunday the 7th of April 2019.

On Friday we shall get together once the ship leaves Helsinki. Christian Janssen, DL1MBG, the President of WRTC 2018 e.V. will be our Guest Speaker that evening. At 8 pm we’ll have a common sea buffet dinner and thereafter lots of eyeball QSO’s with old and new friends.

The actual meeting will be on Saturday on the ship while it is in Stockholm Viking Terminal. We expect many Swedes to come to the day meeting, since the first part of the day is used to the aftermath of WRTC 2018 competition. At least the Swedish and Finnish teams and possibly one or two other teams shall debate. Tomi, OH2BBT has done a comprehensive RBN-analysis of the all the WRTC 2018 stations. And of course the referee will be Chris, DL1MBG.

Fabio Schettino, I4UFH will introduce the next game, WRTC 2022 in Italy right after a small lunch break.

Thereafter we’ll give the stage to Martti, OH2BH, who starts the DX section with his guaranteed know how and style. His presentation may still change, as we know much is on the stake again. In addition there is one or two DX presentation still waiting the consent of their speakers.

Booking is open so book your cruise now at www.ohdxf.fi. All the required information is there and I’ll update the page as soon as there is new development. So please follow the page. Should you have any questions or need help, please contact me and I’ll try to be fast to respond.

The day visitors participating just the Stockholm meeting on the 6th of April, please check the OHDXF web page for registration instructions.

CCF/OHDXF-mötet 2018 hålls i Åbo


The Annual OHDXF & CCF Meeting will be this year in Turku, Finland on 9 – 11 March 2018. The organizer is OHDXF. The meeting will be held in the Holiday Club’s Caribia resort which is located just two kilometers from the City Center.

The actual meeting day is Saturday, the 10 th of March. OHDXF has reserved the auditorium for the whole day. The Meeting package includes a morning coffee or breakfast, a buffet lunch and afternoon coffee. We will also have a common dinner but due to practical reasons, the dinner is not included in the Meeting package but rather charged individually by the resort.

We are putting together a most interesting program. Year 2018 will be a big year in contesting due to the WRTC 2018 in Germany, thus we certainly will put an emphasis there. But since the year will start with the most expensive ever DXpedition, Bouvet Island 2018, we just must highlight it as well. These meeting have always been twofold between Contesting and DX’ing. We are working to tie the presentations into a common thread, the Theme of the Meeting. This all will come out along with the detailed program.

The fee of the Meeting package will be 75 euros to all with the exception of those who stay overnight in Caribia the Friday night. Their fee will be 67 euros since the breakfast is included in the room charge. OHDXF will charge the fee during the booking. The Saturday night dinner’s package price will be 35 to 47 euros depending which menu we will choose. Holiday Club wants all participants to have the same menu, or buffet.

On Sunday all participants who desire are invited to visit OH0X contest site. Depending of how many of us joins the visit we may rent a bus or just use own cars. You should reserve 6 – 7 hours for the trip.

The room charges are reasonable. A single room will cost 108 euros, a double room 128 euros and a triple room 168 euros per night including breakfast. Holiday Club offers 10 % discount of all their Spa services on Saturday. The link here will introduce you to the resort. https://www.holidayclubresorts.com/en/resorts/caribia/.

Turku has excellent train, bus, ferry and flight connections especially domestically and from Stockholm. We will advise soon of these.

Stay tuned. More information will come up to OHDXF and CCF home pages later this week. We should be able to open booking with detailed instructions within a week.

73’s, Kari OH5TS
Secretary OHDXF
