My hobby: amateur (ham) radio.

 

After fifteen years of inactivity due to professional reasons I am finding my way back to amateur radio.  I am slowly but surely re-equiping the shack with radios and test gear, erecting antennas, repairing or restoring electronic test / hobby equipment and enjoying occasional travel, as is evidenced on the following pages.

 

My amateur radio station is called ON4TA (Oscar November Four Tango Alfa) and is located at my home in Geetbets, a rural town in Flanders, north-west Europe. Radio amateurs might want to use Maidenhead grid locator JO20mv to compute location and distance.

 

As a "ham" I spend a lot of time listening (rather than transmitting) on frequencies allocated to the amateur radio service.  I have preference for using speech on the HF bands and the lower VHF segments. 

 

I was introduced to SOTA (Summits on the Air) in spring 2010 and as an activator I combine hill walking and amateur radio from hilltops in my home country and abroad.  See the pictures from my SOTA Wales & Ireland holidays.

 

I enjoy travel off-the-beaten-track and have used my amateur radio station from the Puntland State of Somalia and from The Gambia.

 

I enjoy reception of broadcast stations on medium and short waves, VHF-FM, DAB, DVT-T and satellite bands.

 

Kind regards, Filip
