Update from Pierre, ON4IV dating 27/11/2016 :
The 2 m and 70 cm beacons ON0VHF are back on-air as of 25 November 2016. Antennas have been moved 70 m away and 3,5 m lower than the previous location. However, the radiation patterns are now cleaner, there are less disturbing metallic structures around (e.g. mobile phone antennas).
Current status : On Air
Update from Pierre, ON4IV dating 19/08/2016 :
The beacons ON0VHF are temporarily out of service as of 19 August 2016. The reason is that it was installed on a building that the University of Louvain decided to vastly restructure. As it may last for 1 year, we hope to find a temporary relocation. We keep you informed.
