OF100HQ Will Celebrate Finland’s Centennial in IARU HF World Championship Event

The commemorative call sign OF1ØØHQ will be on the air during the IARU HF World Championship event July 8-9 to mark Finland’s 100th anniversary.

“Finland has been under Swedish and Russian rule, and has had to fight her way to her own destiny of freedom in securing her identity during the World War II,” well-known Finnish radio amateur Martti Laine, OH2BH, pointed out in announcing the HQ multiplier station call sign for the annual event. Laine said Finland has succeeded so well it now ranks in 5th place in the 2017 World Happiness Report, surpassing both Sweden (10) and Russia (34).
