To Western European WPX CW Operators:

From:  K5RX

I will be in the Netherlands at the time of the WPX CW Contest in May, 1995.
I would very much like to operate the contest at a multi-multi or
multi-single within a 6 hour train trip of Amsterdam.  I have considerable
contest experience.  In the WPX CW, several times I have placed in the top
ten USA single-op all band, both low and high power, from my own modest
station and have been on 2-man teams breaking the multi-single world record
in 1984 as ZF2HF and in 1987 as V31A.  If you need another operator, please
contact me by May 5.   

>From PA3ERC member of Contestgroup Oude Maas PI4COM

Hi Brent can you pass on this message to K5RX.

We will be active as multi-multi entry in the coming WPX CW contest. 
The contest location is near Rotterdam in the city Barendrecht. I am 
organizing the contest for our members. For your information we will 
use the following setup:

10 meters 7 elem monobander on 24 meter tower
15 meters 6 elem monobander on 24 meter tower
15 meters 3 elem monobander on 18 meter tower
20 meters 4 elem monobander on 24 meter tower
40 meter2 2 elem monobander on 28 meter tower (first time use)
40 meters dipole for Europe
80 meters 1/4 wave vertical
80 meters dipole for Europe
160 meters Inverted L
160 meters Dipole for Europe

We are working on a 1/4 wave vertical for 160 but that won't be 
finished before the contest.

The logging will be done via CT9 using ct network for all pc's and a 
local PacketCluster (PA3ERC) which is connected to PacketCluster 
PI8DXC which runs at my home and which is connected to the European 
PacketCluster network.

So I hope this setup sounds good enough hi, I must say it is no hotel 
at our contest location but you can have a sleep if you got an 
sleepingbag hi. If you are interested please let me know via internet
my e-mail address is norf at or via packet radio PA3ERC @ 
PI8MBQ, or telephone (0)70-3861512.

In total there will be about 6/7 operators excluding you, so if you 
are interested you can operatore several hours/days hi.
