In order to promote the idea of the Special Olympics, we will be running special event stations and issuing a special prefix, which is available on demand to all Austrian amateur radio stations. Many of our colleagues requested the prefix OE2017 to promote the idea of the Special Olympics.
In 1977, 40 years ago, the first Special Olympics World Winter Games (hence OE40SO, OE40WG) took place. The idea took root and gradually grew, so this year, the 11th games (hence OE11WG, OE11SO), with over 2700 athletes from 107 different countries, will be held in Schladming, Ramsau and Graz.
From March 14th to March 26th 2017 the following club stations will be active on all bands:
- Kainachtal (OE6XRG / OE11WG)
- Leibnitz (OE6XFG / OE11SO)
- Mürztal (OE6XMG / OE40SO)
- Technical University of Graz (OE6XUG / OE40WG), see picture below:
- A great many OE2017 stations.
