Another rather small but nice park in the Antwerp province : ONFF-384 Mosselgoren
in Geel. To get into the boundaries of the park I had to carry my /P
station for about 200 meters from the car, the place where also the
Mosselgoren sign is placed. Setting up the station at sunrise is always
great, everything is wakening up. So did a couple of pheasants that
proudly showed me their kids. Cute!
Started around 5UTC on 20m CW and the two first stations were from the US followed by my buddy from Alberta Canada : VE6UX. Coincidense, when he called me two Canadian gooses flew over making a hell lot of noise. Lovely start of the day!
Moving to 20m phone I worked a lot of EU station, this time not one
VK or any other overseas DX. Worked the pile-up to the bottom and gave a
call on 40m phone, great short skip conditons there, more than 100 EU
stations within an hour.
After a coffee-break (really missed the ON3FY-catering) and the visit
of ON4CEQ I started a run on 30m CW with about 30 stations in the log.
Ended with a last run on 20m phone with again only EU stations.
While breaking down and packing a lonely cuckoo was making a lot of noice in the Mosselgoren.
