Summary on station ON5PDV:

Working Conditions:

Hello, thanks for visiting my qrz.com web page.

My name is Paul, I'm 49 years old and I live in a village called Londerzeel, 20km (12.5mi.) north of Brussels, the capital of Belgium.  Member of the PRA radioamateur club : https://www.on4pra.be

HAM licensed since 1990 ('class B', ON1), upgraded to 'class A' license (HAREC) in 2002 being among the last HAM's taking the mandatory morse-code exam in Belgium back then.  I'm practicing CW again, if you hear me and want to work me, take your time... 

On the picture above you see the broadband 'hexbeam' in operation since july 2014 (designed by G3TXQ, manufactured by MW0JZE).  
I decided to replace a Hy-Gain TH3MK4 3 element Yagi by the hexbeam to have the additional bands (6 bands in stead of 3), even if it (theoretically) meant slightly lower gain and a bit less directivity and selectivity.  

Until now, I don't regret the choice ! To be able to work on any HF band (20m and above, depending on propagation conditions) with high efficiency (full size, no traps) and a low SWR over the whole band, is something worth the very small sacrifice of loosing a director element.

The broadband hexbeam is a slightly modified version of the 'classic' hexbeam, yielding a wider usable bandwidth.  It's certainly worth looking at the theory behind this interesting antenna on the website of the broadband hexbeam designer, G3TXQ  http://www.karinya.net/g3txq/hexbeam/broadband/

Currently I'm experimenting on 40m with a vertical half-wave dipole using 1/4wave mobile HF antenna's.  The picture below shows the setup, it's a vertical dipole (tip of the bottom leg is about 50cm above ground) using 2x Diamond HF-40CL 1/4wave mobile antenna's.
