OK, another un-activated and brandnew ONFF-reference knocked from the list : ONFF-469 Wijngaardberg Wezemaal. Arrived just after sunset and a curiuos little redbreast kept an eye on that strange human setting up some extra poles to sit on …
Conditions were sometimes poor, some minutes later with good openings, changing rapidly. Groundwaves were better on 20 meter than on 40 meter … strange !  Managed to work one VK : VK5PAS, Paul, is in the log. Listened for more VK or outside Europe but no luck.
The weather was excellent with at my /P-shack on the south flank a very comfortable temperature of 21°C. Even got some sunburn. Defenitly spring in Belgium.
ON3FY, the superb catering service from Radio Club Leuven, showed up again. Thanks mate!
Tried some CW but the physical situation of my right hand makes it difficult to key. Will work out another solution for this issue.
After about 4 hours of being active I made 243 QSO’s in 27 countries, 2 continents. Not bad.
