On behalf of the Dutch Kingdom Amateur Radio Society (DKARS) we would like to invite you and your fellow Radio Amateurs to participate in the third Dutch Kingdom Contest which is scheduled to take place during the first weekend of June on June 3 and 4.

The purpose of this contest is to show the consistency of the countries within the Kingdom of The Netherlands to the rest of the world, also give Dutch Amateurs residing abroad a role in it, and last but not least, we also want to show young people how versatile and interesting our radio hobby can be.

The date and time of this contest are 100% simultaneous to the IARU CW Field Day, but we are not meaning to interfere with it as the contest exchange is the same (599+serial). We hope to generate more activity on the band so both contests can benefit!

After the contest the logs can be submitted to our website robot at:
