After this date the new Dutch Kingdom Constitution came in effect and with that 5 new DXCC‐countries joined de Kingdom.

Contest Award yearly

On behalf of the Dutch Amateur Radio Union (DARU) we would like to invite you and your fellow radio amateurs to participate in a new annual HF Contest. 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 schedule of this contest can be found in the agenda on our homepage.

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 www.daru.nu. The rules for the Dutch Kingdom Contest are attached to this document and they can also be found at our website.
