Recent Contests Outside USA:
OZ1ADL http://www.hamband.com/html/oz5e_oz1adl.html checks in with K3ZJ at OZ5E, the "Danish Contest Academy" (DCA) station in Stjaer, Mid Jutland, Denmark. OZ5E is maintained at OZ1ADL's rural QTH by members of the DCA captained by OZ1XJ (license holder of OZ5E). Wonderful people, premier station. See http://oz5e.dk/antenner.htm (click on English for translation). One also can see OZ1XJ's "The Ham Band" perform from the top of the OZ5E tower and purchase a CD or download an entire collection of ham radio songs.

Bangsbo Fort is part of the larger Bangsbo Museum and well worth the visit. Be sure to see the small radios used by the Danish resistance during WWII in the Museum.
