I'm 62 and a HAM since 1974. My home is Mechelen, a place in the middle between Antwerp and Brussels in the "surrealistic country" (dixit PM Charles Michel, I totally agree) called Belgium.
I operate CW most of the time and love chasing DX and tough awards like WAZ. My other call is ON7QRP.
- Kenwood TS-590SG;
- ELAD FDM-S2;
(SDR, connected to TS-590SG)
- Elecraft KX3;
(roofing filters, battery charger, ATU etc. included)
- low height dipole.
(axis almost true North-South, low end North, far from ideal)
That's all there is.
I'm always interested in hearing how I sound like in other parts of the world. If you happen to make a recording, please send me a copy or link together with the date and time of the recording.
Thank you beforehand.
73, good DX
(ex 9H3AK, CT9/ON6KE, TF/ON6KE, TK/ON6KE)
Done with max. 100 Watt and a low strung 20m dipole. To date : 169 worked, 167 confirmed, 165 verified.
36 years this one took me. Done with max. 100 Watt and small wire antennas.
My true pride. #652 since November 14th 1945, it's a small club alright.
Single digit! #9 since January 1st 2000, it's a very small club alright.
