    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    FROM THE SANTA OFFICES, NORTH POLE, FINLAND
    Dec.19,2016
    WELCOMING SANTA TO THE XMAS SCENE, WITH MORE FIREPOWER TOWARDS NORTH AMERICA!
    With December 20th approaching, the Elves at OF9X have captured more than 20,000 QSOs but only some 1,200 to the U.S. Efforts are continuing towards doubling that number, and more firepower is being added to the OF9X U.S. script.
    Santa will arrive on American soil, activating W1/OF9X from New Hampshire (NH). When finally boarding his sleigh, he will say goodbye to America as W7/OF9X from Tacoma, WA. Working Santa from these two U.S. locations adds 25 points each to the Santa Award program, as compensation for Mother Nature’s poor propagation.

    Santa is ever grateful to Ray, W2RE and Lee, WW2DX at Remote Ham Radio (http://www.remotehamradio.com/) for supporting him on his world tour, featuring the latest amateur radio remote technology.
    Santa will start appearing also from his site starting this Wednesday. He can talk to you and your children daily, starting at 20:00 UTC, via video/audio streaming at  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChAyOCitjGNMyHf6hJTXZBQ/live. Santa will personally invite the top scorers for a private conversation with their children and grandchildren later this week. You can also ask for an appointment after your first QSO with OF9X. Please see the application format further below on this page.
    The popular Elf-Hunt has put hundreds of DXers in arms, going for all band slots on a variety of bands; see Clublog for the current scoring situation (https://secure.clublog.org/charts/?c=OF9X#r). The global Top Ten should be commended for their dedication to Santa Claus and for honoring the statement of Margaret Thatcher during her term as the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister: “A small elf resides in all of us” – particularly in these turbulent times!
