Only a few people know Morokulien. It is situated at the border between Norway and Sweden at the old royal route from St Petersburg to Oslo. 300 years ago the Swedish and Norwegian (Danish) soldiers had a fierce battle at the entrenchment of Ed. In 1914 Swedish and Norwegian peace friends erected a 18m high peace monument made of grey granite with the inscription "Future wars between Skandinavian brothers will be impossible" added by the Swedish king Oskar II.

A peaceful area developped around this monument since then. Moro is the Swedish word for 'joy', Kulien means the same in Norvegian and both words together made the name Morokulien. Meanwhile this became also a large centre for handicapped people.

Amatur radio: Prefix LG or SJ, no extra DXCC entity. In 1968 some amateurs wanted to help handicapped people out of an isolated situation and built up an amateur radio clubstation with the call LG5LG. Then some Swedish amateurs attended and a cooperation across the border started using the call SK9WL. The border cottage was not in use, it was planned taken away. Radio amateurs from both countries occupied it, cleaned it and made an amateur station there which can be used also by handicapped people. SK9WL was replaced with SJ9WL and in this way both callsigns became very special presumably being the only clubstation in the world licensed by two countries.
