SOTA HamRadio 2024

Great news indeed! I’m pleased to be able to say that after missing the 2023 Ham Radio FN, I will be there this year. I will be travelling with Victor @GI4ONL . We are meeting in Luxembourg on Wednesday evening 26th June, and will drive from there to the show. There may be one or two activations on the Thursday as we travel. We are staying in Tettnang on Thursday and Friday night, leaving on Saturday afternoon for SOTA activations (Mainly DM/BW area), which will end on Thursday 4th July. I return home early on Friday 5th July.

I did look into flying via Ryanair from Stansted to Memmingen (50+ miles from FN) where the car hire and flights are cheaper. However, it was not possible for Victor to reach there from Ireland so we settled on using Lux Air to get to Luxembourg which Victor discovered fly out of Dublin and Manchester on the same days of the week.

Thank you to the organisers of the SOTA stand and programme, especially Jean Pierre @HB9HBV and Jens @HB9EKO . It’s a big responsibility for you. I will be making a contribution to the fund via PayPal and hope that there will be a SOTA Dinner arranged for the Friday evening, or if not, an informal get together at a local hostelry. I would be happy to spend a few hours on the stand on either day, however I am not multi-lingual unlike so many of my SOTA friends in Europe!

Liebe SOTA-Community,

Euer Engagement für SOTA-Aktivitäten und die Teilnahme an der Ham Radio 2024 in Friedrichshafen sind beeindruckend. Es ist wunderbar zu beobachten, wie Amateurfunker aus aller Welt zusammenkommen, um HB9SOTA sowie SOTA Deutschland und Österreich zu unterstützen und zugleich die weltweite SOTA-Organisation zu fördern.

Dank eurer großzügigen Spenden haben wir bereits 873 CHF sammeln können, was uns hilft, einen Teil der Kosten für unseren Messestand und die Werbegeschenke zu decken. Dieser Beitrag ist essenziell für den Erfolg der Veranstaltung und gewährleistet unsere fortlaufende Präsenz bei zukünftigen Ham Radio Events.

Wir möchten es euch so einfach wie möglich machen, uns zu unterstützen, daher hier nochmals die Spendenoptionen:

PayPal: PayPal @SotaHamRadio2024 ( PayPal.Me ) (Bitte beachtet, dass für Schweizer zusätzliche Gebühren anfallen können.)
Twint: +41 79 321 53 72

Zudem bietet die Mitarbeit am Messestand eine hervorragende Gelegenheit, ein aktiver Teil unseres Teams zu werden und die SOTA-Bewegung unmittelbar vor Ort zu vertreten. Die Mehrsprachigkeit ist dabei ein enormer Vorteil, um mit internationalen Amateurfunkern spannende Gespräche zu führen.

Für die Standbesetzung könnt ihr euch hier anmelden: SOTA/HamRadio 28.-30. Juni 2024.

Euer Engagement ist von unschätzbarem Wert für die Weiterentwicklung und das Wachstum unserer SOTA-Community bei der HamRadio. Wenn ihr noch weitere Fragen habt oder Anregungen uns mitteilen möchtet, zögert nicht, dies hier im Reflektor zu tun.

Ein herzliches Dankeschön an euch alle für eure Unterstützung. Ich freue mich darauf, viele von euch persönlich auf der Ham Radio 2024 in Friedrichshafen zu treffen. Es ist eure Unterstützung durch Spenden, freiwillige Hilfe oder einfach durch eure Teilnahme, die die SOTA-Gemeinschaft stärkt und zur Förderung des Amateurfunkhobbys beiträgt.

Liebe OM’s und YL’s,

ich möchte euch heute den aktuellen Stand mitteilen: Bislang sind 1020 CHF an Spenden von euch eingegangen. Dies ist sehr erfreulich, da somit auch etwas für SOTA UK übrig bleibt.

Für das Essen am Freitag haben sich bereits 53 Personen angemeldet. Dank eurer Unterstützung wird es sicherlich ein großartiger Anlass bei der Ham Radio 2024 werden.

Zudem möchte ich euch informieren, dass wir wie im letzten Jahr unseren Stand in Halle 1 (A1-190) für HB9SOTA, SOTA Deutschland und SOTA Österreich am gleichen Ort haben werden.

Hier noch ein paar Infos, weitere werden noch folgen:

  • Wie auch letztes Jahr gibt es wieder eine kleine Tombola (Wettbewerb) mit tollen Preisen.
  • Für alle, die an der Standbesetzung mithelfen: Es wäre toll, wenn ihr auch etwas von eurem Equipment, das ihr zum Aktivieren benötigt, mitnehmt. Bedenkt jedoch, dass ihr selbst die Verantwortung für euer Material während der Ausstellung tragt.

Dear OM’s and YL’s,

I would like to update you on the current status: So far, 1020 CHF in donations have been received from you. This is very pleasing as it means that something remains for SOTA UK as well.

For the dinner on Friday, 53 people have already registered. Thanks to your support, it will surely be a fantastic event at Ham Radio 2024.

Additionally, I would like to inform you that, like last year, we will have our stand in Hall 1 (A1-190) for HB9SOTA, SOTA Germany, and SOTA Austria at the same location.

Here are a few more pieces of information, more will follow:

  • As last year, there will again be a small raffle (competition) with great prizes.
  • For all those helping with the booth setup: It would be great if you could bring some of the equipment you use for activating. However, please remember that you are responsible for your own material during the exhibition.
