SANTA HUNT -- OF9X ACTIVE FROM DECEMBER 01 THRU DECEMBER 31, 2016
SANTA RADIO, OF9X IS INTRODUCING THE HARD WORKING TWELVE (12) ELVES
As for many years Santa is now setting up for his world tour - including Amateur Radio -- and will
provide your family an added pleasure for this Christmas. The exciting news is that for the first
time in the history of OF9X, Old-Father-Nine-Christmas, and the elves will step forward so that you
can get to know them and their part in the Christmas scene. And better yet, you can make an effort
to find them together with your young ones whether within your family or in your immediate
There are twelve elves operating OF9X and they indicate themselves with the 3-
letter identity thus your maximum elf-multiplier can be twelve (12).
You should try to work them on all amateur bands and modes (CW/SSB/DIGI from 630m to 70 cm) and each
QSO would give you a one-point (1). If you are outside of Europe your points are doubled (2).
Summing up the QSO points and multiplying them with contacted number of elves makes your Frozen
Santa Bag, the final score. Only 2016 QSOs are valid for the Bag.
If you miss the elf identity for whatever reason no problem as you can send your QSO listing to
Santa HQ and these elves would count them for you. (email@example.com); you can also look for your
QSOs at the Club Log and each slot may illustrate the elf you had contacted.
Here is your slate of elves:
Arto, OH2KW (ART); Arttu, OH2FB (ATU); Jyri, OH2KM (JYR); Martti, OH2BH (MAR);
Niko, OH2GEK (NIK); Pauli, OH5BQ (PAU); Pekka, OH2TA (PEK); Pertti, OH2BEE (PER);
Raimo, OH2BCI (RAI); Tom, OH6VDA (TOM); Pertti, OH2PM (SIM) and Erik, OH2LAK (LAK).
Your efforts will be rewarded by Santa Awards with the following awards:
A: SKC - Award (Santa is King of Christmas); minimum of 50 points
B: WMC - Award (Warm and Memorable Christmas); minimum of 35 points
C: RNS - Award (Remember those Red Nose Elves); minimum of 20 points
The full-color awards will be sent by email if you send your log and your point calculation to
firstname.lastname@example.org by January 05, 2017 - please also include the name to be printed on the award
and the email address the awards should be sent to.
High scoring stations with their children in each continent will be offered an opportunity to have a
two-way conversation with true and live Santa during the Christmas week. More details on this will
be presented at OF9X QRZ.com where Santa video/audio screening will take place.
May this Christmas be a good one for all children of the world.
