Hi dear friend,
Thanks for having done a QSO with me. Here follows some details about me. If you plan to come to Belgium, feel free to ask me any assistance.
Proud UBA board member (National RoyalSociety of Belgian radio amateurs).
Please don't send me QSL trough eQSL, I enjoy only old fashioned paper QSL cards ! I'm 44 years old, married with Isabelle, we have a lovely daughter named Marine. We are living not very far from Namur, in the countryside, in a village called Malonne.
I believe in the radio-amateurs ethics including the courtesy, respect and friendship. Hence I also believe in human solidarity.
One of the fascinating things about amateur radio is its wonder. Wondering if the band is open, wondering who we’ll hear, wondering what equipment the other person is using, wonder, wonder, wonder.
Wonder allows us to reach out to people who share our hobby without regard to the normal filters that people use in predetermining whether to engage one another. We don’t, because of the nature of the hobby, get to assess appearance, socioeconomic status, or a myriad of other qualifiers that we oft times unknowingly employ in our social, or not so social, interactions.
We are figuratively in the dark, flying blind as it were when we talk with someone for the first time without visual cues to assist us in making judgments. Amateur radio is a contact sport, but it is one of the few where where the players don’t normally get to see one another and to me there is a certain beauty in the blindness (k3wi).
