Licensed since 1980, I have been active as 5N6/ON7VD from 1983 until 1988, when I was based in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. Working conditions in that era were an Icom 720A, FL2100Z and a TH2Mk3 2 element tribander up about 8 meter on a pole in the garden.

Since 2008 again active from Belgium with a mobile whip outside at the balcony of our flat up about 22 meter ASL, a Little Tarheel II, tuneable from 80m to 10m. My station is a Flex-Radio 3000 SDR, running barefoot. This is a very lightweight setup, yet a fun heavyweight.
