After a request from our landlord Reine Svensson, who was one of the organizers of the Diggiloo-show, we had accepted to put up and pull down four tents and have a liaison commission between a HQ-station and liaisons operators on different places in the Thai pavilion area during the show.

All amateur radio traffic during this liaison commission was on 145.500 MHz. We had 2-meters hand portable transceivers and all of us were dressed in yellow waistcoats with the printed text “RADIO”.

From the HQ-station we had the full control of were everyone was located from time to time and we could call for everyone and ask them to go to another place were they were more needed.
