QSL image for PH600NYK

27 March 2013 it was 600 years ago that Nijkerk was granted city right. To celebrate this fact, there will be all kind of activities and festivities in and around the city.

With over 40.000 citizens, Nijkerk is a small city. The city has a few communities: Nijkerk, Nijkerkerveen, Hoevelaken, Holkerveen and Driedorp.

“Nijkerk” comes from the words “Nije” and “Kerk”, meaning: new church. In the late 18 century the city was one of the largest cities around.

Also the city of Nijkerk and Schenectady NY - USA, have a long lasting history, going back to 1630 when Arendt Van Curler from Nijkerk established the trading outpost that would become the City of Schenectady. In 1909 the Dutch churches in Nijkerk en Schenectady exchanged tablets memorializing this connection. City-to-City exchanges between inhabitants of the City of Nijkerk and the City of Schenectady have been in existence since 1984.

With our special callsign PH600NYK (*) we also payed attention on the 600th anniversary of this old city.

 

The Special Event Call PH600NYK was operational from March untill July2013.

Almost 6000 QSO's were made! Thanks to our sponsors, we can send all our contacts a special QSLcard!

 

 

(*) From a radio historical point of view we have chosen the suffix NYK, in remembrance of the former Aero Nautical NDB NYKE,

which was transmitting "NYK" at 326 kHz. It was located close to its successor; the navigational waypoint "NYKER".

Our prefix is related to Dutch Airplane Registations which are starting with "PH"

 

Update 10 Feb. 2014:

For Direct QSL's; they sent to you now!
