Group 1884 website.
are a group of five radio amateurs who are fortunate to have their
own place at FORT BUITENSLUIS.
Fort Buitensluis is a fortress near the small town of Numansdorp
in the province of Zuid-holland in The Netherlands. The fortress
was built in 1884. As individuals, we al are also member of the
VERON department A52 HOEKSCHE WAARD, and three of us are also the
board members of this department. So we will be able to operate
under one of the club calls most of the time.
CG1884 is a completely separate initiative, and has no further connection
with the VERON department HOEKSCHE WAARD A52. Members of Contest
Group 1884 has to pay a separate memberships fee. We have our own
bunker at FORT BUITENSLUIS and it is big enough to have a full multi,
multi set-up, with all the conveniences of a big station. There
is a separate space for recreation, eating and cooking and a nice
facility with toilets, handbasin and even a shower.
At the moment we have antennas for al the contest bands and we are
constantly improving the set-up. The location is unique because
it is almost completely surrounded by water, and a good distance
away from any HF pollution.
If you want to assist or visit us please let us know, contact us
before visiting. The location is not free accessible and access
is dependent on the current COVID19 restrictions.
