The NTC was founded by Rien PA7RA, Joop PG4I and Theo PA3HEN on January 31, 2021. Our goal is to promote, foster and preserve Morse Code. We also feel that creating friendly ties between radio amateurs is important. Our club is open to all with an emphasis on Dutch speaking radio amateurs.
The current board consists of Theo PA3HEN, Joop PG4I, Luc ON7DQ and Simon PA2SQ.
To become an official member you must make a QSO with 2 club members, at least one needs to have a Dutch callsign. Both need to be a member at the time of the QSO. See “List of members” which includes admission dates. To help you out we are listed in the CW Club RBN Spotter. If you want to become a member of the NTC please use “Apply for membership” and fill in the form. We will check for you if your QSO’s are valid.
After becoming a NTC member you will get a membership certificate and you will get access to a private mailing list and a SKED page to communicate with other members. There also is a public Facebook page, so people can find us.
Our meeting frequencies are 3568, 7038 and 14058 kHz. Our one hour QSO party takes place every third Thursday of the month at 19.00 UTC (see activities -> NTCQP).
Our club call is PI4NTC. We also use the special event callsigns PG6NTC and PF6NTC. Our QSL policy: if you send us a QSL card you will get one back. We don’t send out a card for every QSO we make.
