Newsflash August 18. There seems to be an early post on POTA about merchandising that will be available through this website soon. That is correct. We are working on that. And NO! You will not have to buy an activity membership to purchase these goodies.

The official POTA merchandising for the EU will be available to ALL HAM operators visiting this website.


Our memberships are for participating in activities with free use of equipment and food and accommodation.

August 28: By popular demand and promoting the 'be active' amateur radio outdoor lifestyle.

Over the last 10 days we had so many EU POTA Activators and Hunters contacting us that we are pleased

to offer this Icom IC-705 special to all HAM operators in the EU. Shipping costs to most EU countries will be around 25 Euro. Contact us for more details. No membership needed to order this special offer.

And yes, we have the units IN STOCK !

Let us make contact on October 15 & 16 !

WEBSHOP ENKEL VOOR LEDEN 


Dit is een website voor actieve POTA, SOTA en DX radio amateurs.


Maak je keuze uit 3 lidmaatschappen en word een actieve deelnemer aan onze POTA en SOTA activaties en DX velddagen. Je krijgt toegang tot de mobiele shack en kan gratis gebruik maken van het beste en nieuwste HAM radio materiaal op de markt. Bovendien kan je aankopen doen en krijg je extra kortingen in mogelijks de goedkoopste HAM webshop op het internet. Niet leden kunnen geen aankopen doen maar kunnen zich wel registreren voor onze nieuwsbrief.

FDXC REMOTE LIDMAATSCHAP


Het is de bedoeling van FOTA BV om OP8L tot een volwaardig contest station uit te bouwen en dit aan fervente DXers zowel remote als ter plaatse met accommodatie te laten gebruiken. Daarbovenop geeft dit speciale lidmaatschap toegang tot antenneparken op 5 continenten. Dit is niet bedoeld om DXCC awards op een onconventionele manier te behalen. Neen. Dit is bedoeld om in SSB in goede omstandigheden aangename QSO's te maken met OM's die je anders niet hoort of die verdwijnen in QSB. Dit lidmaatschap geeft toegang tot het Remote HAM Radio netwerk.

WEBSHOP FOR MEMBERS ONLY 


This is a website for active POTA, SOTA and DX radio operators.


Make your choice out of 3 membership packages and become an active participant in our POTA, SOTA and DX field days. Membership will give you access to our mobile shack and let you use the latest and best in HAM radio equipment. Only members are allowed to buy through our webshop and will receive extra discounts on top of what is possibly already the best value HAM radio webshop on the internet. Non-members can not make any purchases but can register for our newsletter.

FDXC REMOTE MEMBERSHIP PACKAGE


It is the intention of FOTA BV to remodel OP8L towards a worthy contest station and make it available to its members by means of remote operation or as a full accommodation hideaway shack. This special membership also gives access to antenna parks on 5 continents. This is not meant to be used to obtain DXCC Awards in an unconventional way. No. This is meant to be a great means to make QSO's with OM's that are otherwise not heard or fading in QSB. This membership also gives access to the Remote Ham Radio network.
