Please read the new rules for this year! Once again we will have a lottery with prizes and also have a new class for members of SCAG. We hope 2015 will be as successfull as 2013 and give you many new friends on the air!
SOCWA is a project aimed to consolidate Morse code skills among amateur radio operators and to increase CW activity on the ham radio bands.
Encourage other ham radio operators to go CW in their own speed. Help them to increase their CW skills and experiences. Send at a moderate speed that does not discourage others from participating.
The drawing in SOCWA 2015 will be on Wednesday, February 3, at 18.00 UTC. It will be a live video transmission using Bambuser from the Univesity of Borås. You will be able to see it on this webpage.

Possibly there will be more prizes when we count the money after newyear. Date of the drawing will be announced later.
For next year we have decided not to have a lottery, however, the web page will remain with the log book and all, you have the possibility to gather new diplomas for 2016. We hope that the majority will continue to meet "on the air" and "online" as before.
Finally, we wish all participants a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2016!

Scandinavian Open CW Activity - CQ SAX
The Oland Amateur Radio Society, SK7RN and the Scandinavian CW Activity Group (SCAG) are pleased to announce a stimulating CW activity (on all the HF Bands) for Scandinavian amateur radio operators for Calendar year 2013.
SOCWA involves CW (Continuous Wave) contact by and between amateur radio operators in the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. (Prefixes OY, JW, JX, OH0 and OJ0 also count as Scandinavian countries.)
A Scandinavian amateur radio operator is:
1) an individual who holds a valid permit or license issued by one of the above listed countries, or
2) an individual whose original license was issued by any one of the aforementioned countries.
Radio amateurs from other countries outside of Scandinavia who register are welcome to participate in the SOCWA, but in order to qualify for a Completion Certificate; each qualified two-way CW contact must include an amateur operator from one of the listed Scandinavian countries.
The SOCWA program will be in effect for Calendar Year 2015 (01-Jan-2015 through 31-Dec-2015) in order to maximize the total amount of qualified two-way QSOs.
Recommended frequencies (khz): 1835-1840, 3535-3540, 7035-7040, 10125-10130, 14035-14040, 18085-18090, 21035-21040, 24905-24910, 28035-28040
