I'm 60 and a HAM since 1974. My home is Mechelen, a place halfway between Antwerp and Brussels in this crazy country called Belgium.
I operate CW 99% of the time and I love chasing DX and tough awards.
Hardware here is a Kenwood TS-590, a Yaesu FT-817ND, a few keyers and a low 20m long OCFD, that's it.For /P work I use a magnetic loop or a 20m end-fed and 9:1 Un-Un.
I'm always interested in hearing what 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 DXGust ON6KE
