A serious Multi-Multi operation is planned from Estonia in the upcoming CQWW Contets.

The contest site is located in South-Estonia (QTH of ES5Q). Some new antenna systems were just recently put up in preparation of the contest. The callsign for this operation will be ES9C. The prefix ES9 is not too common and is exclusively used in connection with the Estonian Radioamateurs Union (ERAU). This operation was put together with a lot of teamwork and also has international participation.
