Santa Claus from Romania….

Santa Claus and his Ham Radio elves are coming back to YO again in 2018 for the third consecutive time.

The YP-XMAS callsigns are already a tradition and the Romanian RadioClub Association (ARR) aims again to give to the Radio Community moments of joy around the Winter Holidays

The beautiful Santa Claus story on radio waves started by Finland’s radio amateurs (OH9SCL in 1986 and later the OF9X team) has been taken over in recent years by different colleagues from several European countries.

In this context, the initiator of the Romanian team, Sorin YO2MSB, put his traditional Santa clothes, a white beard, and three years ago he went looking for the elves eager for such a radio event. And they rushed to say “yes” to the call of Santa and began to prepare their necessary radio equipment. Therefore, on December 01st, 2016, the first calls with YP-XMAS were heard in frequencies.

Today, in 2018, we are preparing for the largest team with activators in all the districts of YO
