Sweden’s Minister for Defence is radio amateur, Carl Anders Peter Hultqvist SM4HCF, he was appointed on October 3, 2014
On Friday, December 11, 2015 the Swedish national amateur radio society, SSA, had the honor to receive Peter Hultqvist, SM4HCF. He was in Karlsborg on official mission, but after this Peter took the time to complete a telegraphy test in a classroom at the old S2 led by Kjell SM6CTQ and Fredrik SA6CJZ, and then devoted an hour to the SSA archives.
The Defense Minister expressed surprise that the archive was so extensive. Eric SM6JSM had picked up some interesting documents such as QSL card from the Swedish military and humanitarian operations in a distant land, from the Palestine conflict in 1948, Katanga, Cyprus, Afghanistan and so on.
A small gift was presented, consisting of old issues of the QTC from the 30’s. We hope that at some later time have the opportunity to present other delights. The picture (follow the link below) was taken in our archives and shows from left Eric SM6JSM, Peter SM4HCF and Kjell SM6CTQ.
