1st Open CW Contest Party
14-17 September 2009
Bulgarian Federation of Radio Amateurs (BFRA) is pleased to invite individual CW contesters and visitors/guests from all over the world to 1st Open CW Contest Party to be held in Bulgaria in September 2009.
The Contest Party will be held in Obzor, situated at Black Sea coast, 60 km south of Varna and 60 km north of Burgas. Obzor is a relatively small town (population 2400), but one of well known Bulgarian sea resorts. Many factors make it a preferable destination for the summer vacation – ecologically pure region, 5-km-long beach, active nightlife.
