The ON3ØEUDXF story

During the year I noticed good activity on all bands with the special *EUDXF calls from many EU countries. Since I am also a member of the EUDXF foundation and were sponsored with DXpeditions of the Rockall DX group (9Q5ØON and EP6T), I felt responsible to help in any way to activate Belgium with the special call ON3ØEUDXF. I requested the call in October, but had to wait until 2 December to get the license in my possession after many phone calls… I could only get a permit for one month, so I choose December. First I had to prepare the QRZ.com page with prepare upload to Clublog. Every ending days of activity I uploaded my log. I must say Clublog is the master in handling QSL requests! The activity was high in the first days. I was mainly QRV on 17, 20, 40 and 80m because the activity was higher on those bands. After I was spotted, hell broke loose. After about 300 QSO’s I switched mode to regain my pile up. After work a mostly worked to the west (USA and SA) before 17 and 20 was closing down. Than I had to stick to 30, 40 and 80, due to bad propagation. In the weekends I could be active early, but 10, 12 and 15 was a disaster, as many others could agreed with. So I had to start on 17m to have good pile ups towards the east. In total we (ON6CC & ON7RN) worked 4366 QSO’s. We counted 132 dupes. Eric, ON7RN who is also a member had about 160 QSO’s during the last days. Thanks Eric! It was my honour to have been working you all as part of the 30-thirtieth anniversary of the EUDXF foundation!
