Celebration time did not last very long. Public transport in strike
and an very bad traffic jam direction Brussels, the way to 209 …
When arrived in the area it was a hell of a job to find the nature
park : ded-end streets, one-way streets etc made me coming about half an
hour later than planned in the “Vogelzangstraat”. If you ever like to
activate this one I might be your guide ! Not one sign to find refering
to ‘Nico de Bouvé’ … only a small sign saying this is protected bird
area from “DE Wielewaal” … that’s it. Already a bit stressed we started
The stress disappeared during running the pile-up, in the meantime
watching playing rabbits just a few meters before me. This was also the
first test for my new portable headset from Heil … needs some fine
tuning but it worked.
Also an unicum is that I made a few CW QSO’s ! Very QRS, I’m getting
nervous from CW pile-ups and my CW skills are not that good. But we did,
something we will do also on next activations. My challenge for 2015 is
to be able to manage a CW pile-up !
I ended with 155 QSO’s in 22 DXCC countries.
