Welcome to SMSS!

A new contest in which all radio amateurs can participate in SMSS, Swedish lakes, to activate and chase lakes in Sweden. You can join free of charge! Moreover, it is simple. Logs can be uploaded on the website in the ADIF format, or be entered manually. All what is required is that you register and log in.

In Sweden, there are over 100 thousand lakes and the contest is to run portable hams radio from these lakes. The race is a points race where a contact is equivalent to 1 point. At least one of the stations have to be located at one of these lakes for points to count.

With the help of Google Maps in our search engine, you can quickly and easily locate areas near you, or your vacation-haunt. Click on the map (karta) in the menu above to try. The map shows the nearest 400 lakes from your QTH locator when you are logged in. Zoom into QTH by right clicking!

Our hope with this contest is that Radio Amateurs will go out to discover our beautiful Swedish nature. Another advantage that in most cases, receiving is completely free from noise and areas close to the lake are usually also offer a very good takeoff for our broadcast signals. Lakes are also very convenient because they are so numerous, that the vast majority have very many in his neighborhood. This saves costs and the environment because we do not have to drive so far with the car.
