I got my first license in 1989 as novice. In 1997, I got my HAREC license and then I got the access to all frequencies above 30 MHz. I caught my first DX on the VHF bands.
5 years later, in 2002, I passed the CW exam and got the full license which permits the access to all HAM bands.
My main interrests are DX chasing on the HF and VHF bands mainly in SSB and digital modes.
I'm member of the UBA (Belgian Amateur Radio Society)
and my radio-clubs are:
UBA section: ON4RSX
Belgian Air Force Amateur Radio Association BAFARA

My QTH is at 150m asl
My main antennas:
I respect the DX Code Of Conduct
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
Cu on the air.
