LA8G was also this year QRV in the WPX contest. LA9IY Bjørn and LA9GY Morten went to Spitzbergen and joined the QTH of JW5E outside Longyearbyen.
Also in 2001 the call used was JW8G during the contest, but JW9IY and JW9GY was used outside the contest. Operations were primarily CW on all bands where condx and antennas were available. They worked some PSK31, SSTV and satellite.
