Netherlands Special Event

On Sunday, September 7th, the 73th annual National UNESCO Heritage Flower Parade of Zundert will be held.
This event is visited every year by over 50,000 visitors. Just like every year, the parade will have over 20 floats that will make a round-trip through the center of Zundert. On Monday, September 8th, the floats are exhibited on the exhibition site of Zundert for visitors.
The 20 neighborhoods of Zundert and surroundings will participate in this event with their own float. Look for more information on:
To celebrate this event, several radio-amateurs of VERON Section 54 will
activate the special callsigns PA73CORSO, PA73EBP and PA73LOU.
The reason they have chosen the 73 callsign is that it also has a special meaning in the amateur radio world.
The station PA73CORSO will be activated between August 12th and September 8th, from Zundert and surroundings. The highlight of this event will be on Sunday, September 7th and Monday, September 8th, when the callsigns will be activated from the exhibition site of Zundert.
The station PA73CORSO will be activated on all bands, HF and VHF and on all modes. A special QSL card and a beautiful special award will be issued.
For more information on the station, pictures of some floats and details on the "73th BLOEMENCORSO ZUNDERT AWARD", see:
