HF0F (QSL via SP9BRP) will operate from Kraków to mark the visit of His Holiness Pope Francis to Poland from July 25-31. The program includes the Pope’s participation in the World Youth Days taking place in Kraków.
The Pope will also travel to the national shrine in Czestochowa to honour 1,050 years of Christianity in Poland.
The last event will consist in paying respects to the victims of the former Auschwitz Nazi Concentration Camp.
