In September 2008 Hans (age 51), as a member of a the Swedish radio-orienteering team, goes to Korea to participate in the 14th World Championships in Hwaseong, south of Seoul.
The Swedish team consists of 7 members who attended the following program.
Arrivals and registrations
Training on both bands, opening ceremony
144 MHz Competitions and awarding ceremony
Free day, excursion
3.5 MHz Competitions and awarding ceremony, farewell party
Departure of participants
To enable time for time adjustments (–7 hours) the team arrive one day earlier. They also spend one extra day in Hwaseoung after the competitions.
The Swedish runners saw one snake and some spiders, but no dangerous animals.
The hotel room had cupboards, a TV and a telephone, but no furniture... After some time we got simple beds and after some days we got two chairs and a small table. Anyway, we slept very well in the beds and were quite happy with the arrangement.
