Most northern Netherlands (licensed) radioamateur station
We visited the most northern point of mainland Netherlands today. Not too far from our home. There is a monument on the dyke and lately a new monument in remembrance of a plane that went down due to motorproblems in the war. Several of the crew members were found on the northern coast here. It is a very nice place to be but on the open with a lot of very cold wind.
Now, I sometimes proudly announce on the frequency that I am the most northern active amateurradio station of mainland Netherlands. But today I was thinking if that was right? Since PA4GB Gerrie has made a appearance on hamradio again I know now were he lives. Looking at googlemaps I saw I am not the most northern active licensed radioamateur mainland Netherlands anymore, he is. So, congrats Gerrie with this new title, actually you should deserve a certificate for this. Till someone claims he is further north. By the way I think the most northern amateurradio station in the Netherlands could be PD9R from Schiermonnikoog. But I'm not certain of this. Unfortenately PD9R is not active (yet).
