I obtained my first JA ham radio license in 1964 and first USA license in 1976.
I have been enjoying DXing as well as chatting on digital modes. I am active on 20m PSK, MFSK, Olivia and CQ100. My recent activity is mainly on Olivia mode and I have been enjoying chats with DX stations on Olivia mode. I normally use radio frequency 14.072.0MHz or 21.072.0MHz 16/500 or 8/250 mode 1500Hz audio center frequency and call CQ between 23:00 and 07:00 UTC beaming to North America and on 14.106MHz 32/1000 mode 1500Hz audio center frequency between 07:00 to 08:00 UTC for Europe. I might operate around midnight on weekend for Europe.
I recently joined The Olivia Belgium Club #317.
