Report from TusLA on air -event   Leave a comment

TusLa on air -event was organized in 13.2.2011 @ market square of Turku, by TusLA association. The event was succesful, but weather was extremely cold. In the beginning of the event temperature was about -18 C, but in the hours of afternoon sun was warming little bit, rising the temperature near -10 C degrees. Because it was so cold, there were not huge crowd in the market square. There were anyway many people passing by the area, and some came to discuss an ask all kinds of things with us. Also some many DXers in Turku area visite our place! ūüėČ TurPa or SDXL didn’t got any new members, but we were succesful in selling some books (although they were little bit antiqued already…). Our event team included me, Jan-Mikael Nurmela, Hanna Aho and Linda Laakso who was there with me during the last hours of the event.

TusLA had also managed to get three high hoists to lift people in the air to see Turku from bird’s perspective! TusLA also tried to make longest QSO from market square of Turku that ever had been done. Their trial was succesful, they managed to make QSO to Nakkila and Tampere.
