Arctic Radio Club celebrated their 50th anniversary with some special broadcasts from the “peace kingdom” of Morokulien on the Swedish/Norwegian border during late December and early January. This special event station broadcast on 1584 khz with a power of 400 watts. These special broadcasts were arranged in cooperation with the amateur radio stations SJ9WL and LG5LG in Morokulien.
I only had the chance to listen in to the first broadcast on December 28 and to my surprise their signal was received quite well at my home QTH. The programme I listened into was a “nostalgia broadcast” with music from the 1960s and 1970s and with some interviews with people working on the Swedish offshore pirate station Radio Nord in the 1960s . I received a QSL sent by postal mail and some information about Morokulien last week.
