The conditions was very good with clear dry weather in Grimeton, Sweden. The transmission hall was filled up with record-many visitors who had come to enjoy coffee, cake and Swedish ginger snaps, and to watch the activities with starting and running the old radio transmitter SAQ.
The operators from the Alexander association was a little bit concerned about the start-up, due to the difficulties on the UN-Day on October 24th, however the “old lady” showed her most positive side and we had a flawless startup and transmission.
Lars Kålland was at the morse key, delivering the Christmas message. This transmission was the grand finale for Lars, who has decided to retire from this duty.
Thank You Lars for all your great work at the Grimeton Radiostation!
