Freedom

70 years ago the allied forces liberated The Netherlands from Nazi rule, ending the second world war five years after it started. The southern part of The Netherlands was liberated in the autumn of 1944, while the northern part was only liberated in the spring of 1945. On May 4, 1945 the German forces formally capitulated to the British Field Marshall Montgomery. The capitulation was effective the next day. We therefore celebrate the end of WW2 for the whole of the country on May 5 every year. Tonight I worked the first 2 special Stations on 40 meter phone: PA45FREE and PC45FREE with 5 watt QRP SSB. Also worked R120D from Russia on 40m though a big pile up, he did hear me. I had a nice qso with F1VAM from the Elzas, France.
