Amateurradio in Morokulien

There is a cottage located close to the border. The cottage (called "grensstua") contains an amateurradio station. Licensed radio amateurs may transport the idea of Morokulien to the world on the short wave bands. For that, the amateurradio station is assigned two special call signs: SJ9WL as Swedish call, and LG5LG as Norwegian call.
