Dear OM’s/YL’s,


On behalf of the Dutch Kingdom Amateur Radio Society (DKARS) we would like to invite you and your fellow radio amateurs to participate in a new annual HF Contest which is scheduled to take place, on the first weekend of June which is:

2 and 3 of June 2018


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. Attached in this letter you find a copy of the contest rules.
The date and time of this contest are 100% simultaneous to the IARU CW Fieldday, 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 .
The rules for the Dutch Kingdom Contest are attached to this document and they can also be found at our website.
For any further questions or comments you can contact the DKARS Contestmanager via:


We hope to hear you in the contest!
