“Sea of Peace” (SOP) - Pennon

SOP Pennon Since 1991, we have presented the SOP pennon, continuing a tradition over 40 years old. Every year in July, the radio amateurs of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern district accomplish special activities supporting the application of the SOP. The SOP is awarded for contacts with different countries/areas bordering the Baltic Sea and Norway in one year from 1st to 31st of July. Starting in 1992, we award SOP sticker (small pennon) every one for yearly continuing accomplishment of the SOP comperition.

  • On HF, European applicants have present contacts for 15 and non- Europeans for 10 points. Germany is compulsory.
  • On frequencies above 30 MHz exclusively applicants need only 5 points. DL is here not compulsory.
