LA-DX Group Meeting : 29 - 30 April 2006
The 2006 LA-DX-Group Meeting was held in Starum (about 100km north of Oslo, near Gjøvik going in the direction towards Lillehammer) and was attended by over 50 delegates including about 40 LA's, two SM's, three OH's, two G's and Wayne N7NG (Mr LoTW) from the ARRL. The venue was a civil defence facility on the shores of 100km-long lake Mjøsa.
The venue of the 2006 LA-DX Group Meeting was just next to the Gjøvik club station LA5G in Starum on lake Mjøsa . The 2006 LA-DX Group Meeting started with the AGM chaired by Rag LA5HE, which was attended by about 40 LA-DX-G members.
