Spend your Ham vacation with family or friends at the Radio Shack of OH73ELK
The Savonlinna region is the heart of Lakeland of Finland. This is an ideal place for those who love a calm aura.
The cottage is located on a small island with a bridge (it is possible for any type of transports). On the island, you will have complete privacy (2.5 hectare land, own 300m coastline, forest paths).
After a day on Ham Radio bands, you can relax in a traditional Finnish wooden sauna, located just 10 meters from the lake.
Each season in Finland has its own charm. Look at the photos on our website and see for yourself starting from winter! Here you will have an unforgettable Ham Radio vacation!
There are WWFF areas on our lake and different SOTA close to us.
Our modern cottage was built in 2007 by Honka, a world-famous log house designer. Inside you will find all the necessary modern amenities. 3 separate bedrooms and a large living room are available.
This rental QTH is available for 6 persons all year round.
The rental price for Cottage is standard for this region, but it varies depending on the length and season and the number of guests. Use of the sauna, grill, firewood, Yamaha motorboat, fishing rods and other benefits is included in the price. Unlimited Wi-Fi is also included.
There is no additional charge for the use of Ham Shack.
