* SAC brings contesting into the 21st century *
Up to six top-tier entrants are selected by the
Nordic ham radio societies to represent their countries
in a national team contesting trial. Their race can be
followed on-line, sometimes also through audio and
video streams. Be sure to check out this new concept.

* Propagation planning *
The Nordic countries are located in the Arctic region,
often requiring special attention to propagation and
geomagnetic conditions. Here is material to help you
plan how to catch those Aurora-laden Northern signals.
