In Holland two national contests are held on a yearly basis. One is the PACC contest in February, aimed at contacts with other countries. The other is the PA Trophy contest, where only traffic between Dutch stations is allowed on the 75 meters and 40 meters bands. Holland measures only 130 x 200 miles, so in some other countries this would probably be considered a ‘local contest’. Out of sheer curiousity some radioamateurs 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.
