I was aware of contesting in hamradio, but today I came across people who take that very serious and put time and money into scoring high in those contests making the most confirmed connections with the most distant places. Some persons and teams take this quite serious and take big setups to locations with good radio propagation properties.

Some nice examples I found: Team PI9A contest groep Assen have a modified city bus, PG5D homepage, contest reports Remco PA3FYM and Richard PA7FA use the field of a farm and the field of the neighbour to set up a 160m beverage antenna.
