Hello,
 
I live on a sailboat (home harbour is Antwerp) and love to sail and freedive in my spare time and off course HAM radio.
I got my license in January 2013 and have since been active on all bands and modes that my license permits.
I really enjoy amateur radio and find it to be the perfect combination on a sailing boat.
Lately I'm having the most fun operating QRP in CW from wherever you can think off. I'm active as chaser and activater in the SOTA program and chaser in the EU QRP FOXHUNT. Not for high ranking but just for fun. And the more I'm learning to operate cw as good operator the less I use every other mode.

Equipment:
Transcievers:
-for /MM & /P: Elecraft K2
-for /P: Yaesu FT 817ND and Elecraft KX1(super little rig)
 
Antennas:
-for /MM: LDG tuner and an end fed wire antenna 18m vertical, fed with a UN-UN 16/1 (thnx to ON4EZ)
-for /P: my favorite is a buddipole: quick setup, no tuner and for 20 to 2 m resonant full size antennas (vert and hor dipole) wich are always better performers and for 40m with a coil. For the KX1 I use a couple of wires or a doublet. For the rest an LDG Z817 qrp tuner with G5RV jr but I rarely use it and prefer by far the buddipole or just wires.
 
Paddles:
-KENT single paddle in the boat
-ON6UU mini paddle for /P
-KXPD1 paddles wirh KX1
 
Logging:
-Rumlog for iPad and macbook
 
Sailboat:
