Abstract

In Holland a couple of national contests are held on a yearly basis. One contest drawing a high participation, the PA Trophy contest, is held in November. In this contest only traffic between Dutch stations is allowed on the 75 meters and 40 meters bands. Holland measures only 200 x 300 kilometers1, so in some other countries this would probably be compared to a ‘local contest’.
Out of sheer curiosity some radio amateurs of the Radioclub of the Dutch Radio Agency participated in a very special way in the PA Trophy contest. Using a professional shortwave direction finding installation elevation angles of as many participants as possible were measured. The results are presented here.
