November 2016

During November I was active with the special call OP8NT.
OP Is the special prefix all Belgian radioamateur can use in November 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, for remembering the 1st World War (1914-1918).
UBA 14-18 Award:
In commemoration of the World War One centenary the Royal Union of Belgian Radio Amateurs (UBA) issues a remembrance award.
Between 1 August 2014 en 30 november2018 applicants must collect at least 1418 points.
The following rules apply for obtaining points:
- OP0PPY = 500 points
- Special event stations with prefix OP14, OP15, OP16, OP17, OP18 contribute each for 250 points; Belgian stations need to work at least three of these stations, other European stations two and stations outside of Europe one;
- During the month of November of the years 2014-2018 all other Belgian stations will count 30 points.

There are no band or mode restrictions, but contacts via terrestrial repeaters, Echolink etc. are not accepted. Every station may be accounted for only once in the AWARD application. There is an "Endorsement" available if you collect the 1418 points in one calendar year. Five of these "endorsements" are available (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018).
The award is free of charge, and only available in digital form.

September 2016

No 50Mhz activity here on this side... We had a beautiful 'Indian summer' with temperatures up to 30°C almost every day, so in the morning we did some biking, and we were sitting outside on the balcony in the shadow until late in the evening... So probably I missed some openings...
