Activation of PAFF-042 by PA3Q

SOTA and PAFF in one go

Wil - PA3Q - activated Terletse Heide (PAFF-042) on August 18. The area is used as an airfield for glider planes. The highest point is just over 100m ASL - which is incredibly high for Dutch standards... this top has in fact a SOTA reference (PA-005).

Wil has put together a nice little video about the activity. Check out this YouTube link.
