Leaving home sweet home at 6 in the morning … target is to activate ONFF-297 Hornebos and ONFF-194 De Knoppel in the south of the province of Limburg.Hornebos is on the border between Flanders and Wallonia, so also known as “Bois de Horne“.
Nothing special on this one, only woods, trees and forest. That’s it.
Setting up has become piece of cake : in about 10 minutes I’m able to
install the complete /P station so we started very fast on 14.044 CW
followed by 14.310 SSB and 7.097 SSB. Made 168 contacts in 32 DXCC and 4
continents. Best DX : VE6UX and VK1DI/P.Breaking down goes even faster than setting up, under a cloudy sky we headed to Mettekoven for the second activation : De Knoppel.
