This DX site was created to let fellow dxer's know what we are up to while on DXpeditions in our former Walsoorden site (HOL) and the new site near Veurne, West Flanders, Belgium. We hope it inspires other dxers to try DXpeditions.

We travel to such locations to escape noise and to be able to put out long beverage antennas. Something we cannot do from home. DXpeditions take place several times a year. Usually in winter. Dxer's from Belgium and The Netherlands take the opportunity to dx from such rural dx location.

Are you interested in future dx trips? Get in touch with us. Send an email to us. We are always happy hearing from dxer's from other countries.

DX - Downtime

We all managed a bit of sleep. A few hours here and a few hours there. Dxpeditions are never really a holiday in the sun. Its like being at work and having to be methodical in what you do.

Saturday afternoon we have extreme wind conditions and I presume the static from the antennas is causing so much noise on all the bands. So its a bit of dx downtown. we are hoping it does not continue.

We are still working through our morning recordings. More to come later.

this set up looks far too good to called DXing at least as far as I know DXing, it looks more like a radio transmitting station with antennas set up for good
