OF9X – - OLD FATHER 9 XMAS
Do you remember the Ho-Ho Santa Claus who penetrated the bands and talked to children all over the world from Santa’s homeland - Finnish Lapland?
If you don’t – just refresh your memory at QRZ.com. Santa's helpers are now whispering that the white-bearded Old Man will be on the air this year again. The focus is on this coming weekend to remind you of the fun period of Christmas and to create the right spirit for families with children throughout the world. Just as last year, this will happen on the radio waves and hopefully on a variety of bands. Not many people knew then that Santa can even send Morse code!
Already tonight and over the next few days, Santa will appear around 14.225 kHz while loading up his sleigh for the weekend’s world tour. Just go for it and get involved – let your children or grandchildren feel the true coming of Christmas and the presence of Santa Claus.
The announcement is released below and we wish you a Merry Christmas and Good Luck for contacting Santa Claus!
The OF9X Santa Radio will be active in December from the Land of Santa Claus (QTH of Santa-Radio http://www.harriniva.fi

If you contact OF9X during December, 2013, a slick Santa Claus CW-certificate and a fact sheet will be sent to you as per your email request to . The certificate can be issued also in the name of your children or grandchildren and used as a entry document with a discount program on your potential visit to our radio location at Harriniva, Muonio.
