PA400MAR – 400 years Admiral M.A. de Ruyter

In the period of friday the 24th of august until sunday the 9th of september 2007 the clubmembers of VRZA Zuid West Nederland were active with the special event station PA400MAR. This was to commemorate that 400 years ago the most famous dutch navy admiral Michiel Adriaensz. de Ruyter was born in the city of Vlissingen, in the south-west part of the Netherlands.


During forementioned period we were active on the various HF bands in SSB and CW, as well as on the VHF bands (50 and 145 MHz) in SSB and FM. We will confirm each QSO with a special QSL-card. Send your QSL for PA400MAR via PA3HFJ through the bureau.

For further information about this activity you can mail to .

UPDATE november the 7th 2007:

The PA400MAR special QSL-cards have been shipped to the Dutch QSL-bureau, so stay on the lookout for your local QSL-manager!!
