Invitation from SN0HQ

I wish to pass a hearty invitation from the Polish team for the upcoming IARU HF Championship to join the party. The activity is not going to be lower than in the past years. Improving propagation conditions promise more DX contacts. The enthusiasm of the SN0HQ group is not fading. Each year there are a few new, and usually very young, members joining the core of experienced contesters. Competitive participation from Poland in this event was initiated by Tomasz, SP6T and Jurek, SP3GEM in the year 2000. Tomasz has been leading the SN0HQ group for a decade now and two years ago sparked off a meeting of Headquarters Teams from neighbouring countries which took place in August 2009 in southwestern Poland.
