OP0HQ in the IARU HF Contest
Submitted by: ON4UN
IARU-logoFor the first time in many years the UBA will participate in the IARU Contest on second full weekend of July, in a well concerted HQ-effort. We have put together a competitive team to man 12 band-mode slots aiming to give you the ‘UBA’ multiplier on all 6 bands and both modes. We will be using the call OP0HQ, which is an all-time new prefix. So, prefix hunters, watch out for us!

Starting a few weeks from now, you will regularly hear the somewhat unusual callsign ON4DAMIAN on the air. Here is the story on this special call. ON4DAMIAN is a special station commemorating “the Greatest Belgian”, a title Father Damian earned by a popular poll during a series of TV programs where Flemish people were searching for a Belgian, worth this honour.
