Hello, my name is Philippe or just "Phil". I'm licenced since 1993. After passing my exams I got my first callsign ON1AHC. The next few months I studied my morse code and I passed my test to become a fully licenced operator. I've been on the air for a few years with the callsign ON4BAW and early 2002 I applied for a vanity call. Since then I go by ON4VP  or OR5A.

My qth is situated aprox. 50 kilometers north east from the capital Brussels in the northern central part of Belgium.

Main radio interests are chasing dx, occasionally participating in major contests and experimenting with different antenna systems. From time to time I build a small project. I'm mostly active on 10 to 20 meters. Also 6 meters got my interest and I make contacts on a regular base on 40 and 80 meters to. Mostly on SSB or CW, occasionally on RTTY or PSK31. Since 2010 I installed a half wave dipole for 30 meters to work some CW on 10 Mhz.

My main shortwave transceiver is an Icom IC-7600. The IC-7600 is fully integrated with a pair of Microham devices. My top band antenna is an Ultrabeam 6-20 meters full size 4 element dynamic yagi for 20/17/15/12/10 meters with 6 elements for 6 meters. The Ultrabeam controller is connected to a Microham Station Master that also controls my antenna switch and rotator. Due to tower restrictions I can't raise the yagis above 60 feet. I have an Acom 2000 automatic amplifier for HF. Lower band antennas for 30 to 80 meters are simple inverted-v dipoles at present time.

I also have a fully functional FM dualband Yaesu FTM10SR transceiver with a Diamond dualband antenna on my motorcycle integrated with a Sena bluetooth headset built in my helmet.

I upload my logs to LOTW, E-QSL and Clublog on a weekly basis. After 20 years I stopped collecting paper qsl cards. Besides the online logbook services I run my own online logbook server where all my qso's are logged and available for checking.
