Martti, OH2BH, reports the following [edited]:
"In a departure from the traditional HQ pattern in Finland, the Finnish Amateur Radio League (SRAL), Contest Club Finland (CCF) and Radio Sporting Team (OH0Z) are organizing the activation of HQ station from the western Aland Islands at the OH0Z contest site (JP90xi).

The team will put a minimum of five (5) stations on the air, challenging the midnight sun of the Finnish Summer which never sets.

Now you have an excellent opportunity to work The Finnish HQ station from Aland Island (IOTA-002).

The operator roster is as follows: Bob/K3EST (guest) together with Juha/OH1JT, Pekka/OH2TA, Tomi/OH6EI, Martti/OH2BH, Kari/OH2XX, Juha/ OH6XX, Harry/OH6VM and Timo/OG9X.

QSL cards via bureau or SRAL, P.O.Box 44, 00441, Helsinki, Finland

In the same IARU HF World Championship Contest OH2UA and OH6KZP will be running multi-single as OH0X from Brando, eastern Aland Islands. QSL via OH2TA."

This year the TRAC Radio and Community of Radio Amateurs will participate in IARU HF World Championship (July 14-15th) using the special callsign TC50HQ. Activity will be on all six bands and both modes.
