Date : 25-09-2015
Operators: Danny
 Location: Errezee




Not much to say about this one … Au Rond Chêne is just a small forest with no signs at all. The streetname has the same name, the only way to find this protected area.
Had to setup near the street, giving lots of QRM from passing cars.
159 QSO’s with 26 DXCC in 4 continents. Again some VK hunters in the log !

Operators: Danny  
Location: Comblain au Pont




ONFF-0421 Thier Pirard is a chalk rock rising out of the river the Ourthe in Comblain-au-Pont. Very hard to find a good spot to put up antennas, I managed to setup just near the river. All surrounded by wild orchidees and Canadian gooses …
Conditions up and down, my first SSB call on 14.310 put VK5PAS Paul in the log. Followed by a bunch of other VK’s : VK7CW, VK4HA, VK4RF, VK5CZ, VK3PL and VK2IO. ON4BB worked me over the long path !  Several kingfishers popped in to say hello … great!
144 QSO’s in the log in 21 DXCC, 3 continents.

Date : 11-09-2015
Operators: Danny
 Location: Rotselaar



The K-index jumping to 7 knocked out almost all HF traffic. Count also a high QRN and regular planes passing over on the way to touchdown in Brussels Airport and you can imagine this was not the best activation so far.

ONFF-485 Zammelsbroek

Call: OT4V/p
QSO's: 187
Date : 05-09-2015
Operators: Danny
Location:Zammel



I’m very often facing those days that the mind says “GO” but the body refuses to follow. That’s simply explained how the life of a chronic pain patient goes on … Today was one of those days … the mind won … but the body is feeling now like having completed a few marathons in a row … OK not too much complaining … ONFF-0485 Zammels Broek was for the first time on the air !
Zammels Broek is the area where I took the photo’s from the kingfisher, also printed on my paper QSL cards.  One of the most beautiful but also most rare birds in Belgium.
Again poor, even very poor conditions on the bands. I started around sunrise and 20m was still very quiet. Had to beg for QSO’s, so QSY to 40m CW and SSB.  Lots of EU and then suddenly VK4RF calling me 40m SSB ! The DX of the day. Ending on 30m with a good EU run, finally 187 QSO (115 SSB & 72 CW) in 28 DXCC and 3 continents.
Faced also a complete “no respect” for /P stations trying to work other WWFF … I called IZ8DFO/0 in IFF-0810, he called me several times as the /P station but others (even some regular WWFF chasers who were already in MY log) kept calling over me. Shame ! A”Park2Park” award for activators is one of my ideas (like S2S in SOTA), but let’s hope to get some more respect for /P stations !
Almost forgot but local ON7IG Mil was on visit for an great eyeball ragchew. Thanks Mil !

Kan geen bord tonen, enkel bordjes voor wandelpaden en privaat. Ik zat in Anthisnes, misschien staan er langs de kant van Esneux, maar betwijfel het.
Bois d' Anthisnes et d' Esneux is een vrij groot bos, deels toegankelijk voor wandelaars en deels privaat. Ik activeerde aan de zuidkant, in Anthisnes. JO20SM.

Rain from start till end. Made it myself comfortable and dry by operating from out of the car. : ONFF-0386 Heiderbos in AS (prov Limburg)
