Special Call Sign OE 1970 WWL in 2020

In the year 2020 I celebrate my 50th anniversary of my amateur radio examination and my first amateur license as OE5WWL.

Locations are either Vienna (JN88EF) or Apetlon, Burgenland (JN87KS), rarely Ried im Innkreis, Upper Austria (JN68RE) or portable.


The special contest call sign OEØWWL is issued for the WPX contest during the last weekend in March 2020 only.

QSL Policy: I confirm first contacts via the bureau if desired. I upload my logs to eQSL and LoTW once a week. I would confirm direct cards directly as I always did.
