Welcome to the homepage of PI4CC. On this page you can find information about PI4CC. PI4CC is an amateur radio station, mainly designed for operating M/S and M/M entry contests on HF.
PI4CC has his location in Hoek van Holland from a WW-II bunker. We're close to the north sea shore line. Although in the lowlands, this location is still 25 meters above sea level. Our first operation was the WPX-CW contest in 1993. Ever since we are improving the station, and to date we can participate a multi/single entry contest within 15 minutes.
Our present antenna setup is :
2m / 70cm: Diamond X200 vertical at 26 meters.
6 meter: 4 el monoband yagi at 23 meters.
10 meter: 4 el monoband yagi''s at 21 meters + 4 el monoband yagi at 15 meters. Both rotatable.

The antenna's are homebrew and optimized with MININEC and ANTENNA OPTIMIZER.
We make use of Elecraft K3 transceivers, followed by legal power amplifiers. This is 400 watts in Holland.
We make use of a sophisticated network for logging, clusters, administration etc. The individual computers also control our transceivers, cw & voice keyers and the rotators.
Today our prime source of DX-info is coming from our own dx cluster PI4CC.
If you are in the Rotterdam area, you may check our UHF repeater.
