Welcome to the homepage of PI4CC. It is an amateur radio station, mainly designed for operating M/S and M/M entry contests on HF.
PI4CC is located at Hoek van Holland, operating from a World War II bunker. We are close to the north sea shore line. Although in the lowlands, this location is still 25 meters above sea level. Our first operation was the WPX-CW contest in 1993. Ever since we have been improving the station, and to date we are able to participate in a multi/single entry contest within 15 minutes.
Our current antenna setup is:
The antennas are homebrew. Most radiators are split in the middle and symmetrically fed. They have been besigned with MMana, and are tuned with a VNWA.
We are using Elecraft K3 transceivers, followed by legal power limit amplifiers (400 watts in The Netherlands).
This is supported by a sophisticated network for logging, clusters, administration etc. The individual computers control our transceivers, cw & voice keyers and the rotators. Today our prime source of DX-info is coming from our own dx cluster PI4CC.
In case you have worked us and like to receive a QSL card, you can send it via the buro or look at qrz.com for more info.
We frequently upload our logs to the Logbook Of The World.
