1st place in the Netherlands

Earlier I posted about entering a ham contest for the first time. Being licensed as Novice, I could only utilize the 20m band in the European PSK DX contest as stated by the rules of the contest.  I expected to end up really low, if not last, i didn’t have enough time to put into the contest because of the formula 1 races among other things that weekend.

Today I received an email message send by the contest organisation:

Dear PD1WES,
Thank you very much for your participation in the EU PSK DX 2015 contest, for your interest and support of the digital modes.

The European PSK Club congratulates you on your achievement!

We are looking forward to see you in the coming EPC Contests.

As it turns out, i ended up in the first place in the Netherlands for the contest :p YAY 🙂
