ONFF-437 Papendel Begijnendijk on the air

What do you do on a beautiful sunday morning ? Yes, packing the portable station and going to the bushes for an ONFF-activation.

ONFF-437 is a new reference, Papendel reserve in Begijnendijk (VB). Rather windy gave some problems to set up the antenna but once this was done we were ready to fire out a CQ on 40m …

Couldn’t believe my ears but W3DIY from Virginia came back with a solid 59 signal !


What a start ! It ended with 177 QSO’s in 26 DXCC countries.


The pile up was very solid … enjoyed it ! And thanks to my good friend Mario, ON7YZ for the company and help by setting up the antenna !

Some photos from this activation :
