Moray Firth Amateur Radio Society will run three special event stations throughout the duration of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.

The special stations will be located at Strathisla Distillery in Keith (callsign GB3SWF) another located at the Craigellachie Distillery (callsign GB2SWF) and a third at Glenfarclas Distillery (probably GB4SWF), says the Southgate Amateur radio club.

Festival organisers want to contact “as many amateur radio stations as possible, worldwide, to promote Scotland’s iconic dram”.

The site reports that the radio station with the most confirmed number of contacts will also win a bottle of malt whisky. There will be also be prizes of miniature bottles of malt whisky sent to the top listed stations in England, Wales, Scotland, & Northern Ireland.

The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival is held each year during the first long weekend in May (28 April to 2 May 2011).
