SC9ØSM is a special call during April 1, 2017 until Dec 31, 2017 activated by
SK5SM to celebrate the 90 years ago when The Motala LW broadcast station
began operations in 1927 with a 30 kW TX built by Marconi. The towers are

120 m high with a cage antenna between the towers. The first TX was replaced
1935 with a 150 kW TX - the strongest BC station in Europe for some time.
In 1962 Motala went QRT.

The call ‘Stockholm- Motala’ became a household name in every Swedish
home when the station began broadcasting. Today, Motala Radio Amateurs
using that suffix SM (SK5SM and SC9
ØSM) in their calls. SM is an abbreviation
of ‘Stockholm-Motala’ which means that the audio was sent via a telephone
line from Stockholm to the transmitter in Motala.



The old station building now houses  SK5SM  and MOTALA BROADCASTING
MUSEUM - loaded with old TX's from 1920 and forward. Open during summer.
Visit us - you will love it!

All QSL's will be sent out after the expire of the call, probably January 2018.

QSL via Bureau OK

QSL direct via SM5ELV Kent. Please enclose SAE and postage.
