2017 Agenda

This will be my (contest)agenda for 2017. I have to balance the hobby with my family and so it's better to make a schedule so my family knows when I definitely have to be in front of the radio. Not that I will be on the radio all the time, but these dates I will try to spend as much time in front of the radio.

The actual dates are already on the family planner. This post is for archive purposes.

First time in 2 years I will be able to spend more time in the PACC. Unfortenately the PACC is at the same time as the CQWW WPX RTTY. That means you'll never hear the biggest contest stations ever in the PACC. And I will not participate in this RTTY event either as the PACC is much more important for Dutch stations.

11/12 Feb. 12-12 UTC 24 hrs PACC 2017 contest
25/26 Mar. 00-24 UTC 48 hrs CQWW WPX SSB 2017 contest
27/28 May 00-24 UTC 48 hrs CQWW WPX CW 2017 contest
03/04 Jun. 15-15 UTC 24 hrs Dutch Kingdom Contest 2017

19 Nov. 11-14 local time Friese 11 steden contest 2017

  1. Good evening Bas, very good idea and for sure it does help to have a contest plan for the year.

    1. Hello Mike, it shure is something I have to do in a busy family live. 73, Bas

  2. Hoi Bas, mooi dat je voor je zelf een agenda heb opgesteld met de contesten waar in jij wil werken. Gelijk overleg met de achterban en dan kan dat ook geen wrijving geven. Toppie! Ik wens je veel succes met de contesten.
    73 Hans, PE1BVQ.

    1. Hallo Hans, ik heb ooit van iemand de tip gekregen en het werkt grotendeels. Contesten vind ik erg leuk maar tijd is altijd een probleem. Daarom alleen de grootste (belangrijkste) contesten op de agenda. 73, Bas


Thanks for your comment. Bedankt voor je reactie. 73, Bas
