On Sunday 10 October 2010, Curaçao and St Maarten became constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Officials in Willemstad on Curaçao lowered the Antillean flag at midnight (Sunday at 6 a.m. 10-10-2010 in the Netherlands).

Curaçao is in the southern Caribbean Sea. Following a referendum, and as a result of constitutional change, Curaçao became a constituent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands on October 10, 2010.

The constitutional changes marked a new start for the islands, one that put the wellbeing of the islands’ people first.

After 10 years we – as Curaçao Amateur Radio Group – will remember this first decade of the new country Curaçao with a Special DX event. On 10-10 2020 Curaçao Amateur Radio Group will be DXing with the special callsign PJ2C.
