Ham radio meets heritage
Castles on the Air - The Netherlands (COTA-PA) is a national program combining ham radio and interest in historical buildings - specifically medieval castles and fortresses. The program generates attention to historical sites whilst creating ham radio activity worth contacting.
The program has started in 2012 based on the initiative of the World Castle Award program.
The COTA program in PA land is run by:
Lars, PH0NO and Hans, PA3FYG
COTA-PA cooperates closely with the WCA program, to make sure that the activities in PA are also valid for the WCA awards. We upload activity logs to our national database and to the WCA global database.
