SOP - The Sea of Peace hunting started...

Hi all,

The Sea of Peace hunting started. If you want to get also your beautiful SOP pennon awarded first time by the amateur radio organization of the former GDR in 1958... then you should turn on your radio!

SEA OF PEACE is the certificate steeped in tradition of the DARC district Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

This certificate in form of a beautiful silk pennon will be awarded for QSOs with the Baltic neighbouring states and regions in July. Annual stickers can be acquired for repeated fulfillment of the rules during the subsequent years.

Beyond coming SOP-owners will receive special recognitions after 5-and 10-times achievements of the pennon and stickers. This popular certificate was awarded by the amateur radio organization of the former GDR in 1958 and has been continuing by the DARC district Mecklenburg-West Pomerania since 1991.

In 2008 it was celebrated 50 years of SOP with a special call signs and a jubilee pennon.

The SOP pennon is pentagonal and multicolored; 22 cm wide and 33 cm long. The sticker about 7 cm wide and 10 cm long.
