2016-02-17 Last Sunday was PACC contest
Last Sunday was PACC contest, a radio contesting event especially around Dutch radio amateurs. The contest is scored around making the highest number of contacts between radio stations, in this contest at least one of them has to be in the Netherlands. Contacts are made in speech ('phone') or in morse code ('cw') Some people at my club were going to participate and started building antennas on Friday and were active from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. I had time on Sunday but I did not feel very well so I left the contesting to the people who had a better mood for it and I just looked at the action and helped with dismantling the antennas and cleaning up after the contest. There is also a short report in Dutch at PACC contest 2016, voor de laatste maal op Fort de Gagel - Veron afdeling Centrum.
