PI4UTR is the callsign of the VERON radio club department "Centrum". UTR stands for Utrecht, the city we are located in.
Our local club has approximately 200 members and we are active on HF/VHF/UHF from our clubstation on each tuesdaynight. We are also active in a lot of contests on HF and VHF/UHF.
VERON is a Dutch Radio Society founded in 1945, and member of the IARU region 1.
Special event/contest callsigns we use are: PC6NHW/PA0AA.
Our normal clubstation setup is:
HF : ICOM 7400PRO
2 MTR; KENWOOD TR-751A/E
70 CM: KENWOOD TR-851A/E
We have recently moved from our old location at Fortress De Gagel (for over 40 years our QTH) to a new location.
The shack is not installed completely yet and the same goes for the antennas.
On the day of our official opening, saturday 20 augustus 2016, we were QRV for a short period, using an ICOM 7300 and and ICOM 7200. Respectivaly on 20 meters in PSK 31 (PA3GQY) and 40 meters PE2LZ (SSB) and PA5ABW (CW). Two temporary dipoles were installed for that occassion.
From saturday 10 september 2016 on PI4UTR is on the air again. With the help of a classical firebrigade laddertruck we managed to tow two antennes between some trees on our location. A dipole, which is good for 80 meters and a sophisticated FD4 for all the bands between 80 and 10 meters.
But we have more plans on our minds. The fantastic 3 elements SteppiR we had on our old location at fortress De Gagel, in still in store and will be erected some day, that is if 'townhall' is willing to issue us their persmission to do so..........
We will keep you posted folks
the crew of PI4UTR
