Walsoorden DX-pedition on YouTube

Loading...
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.

Morning logs

This morning I had the opportunity to use the K9AY antenna which has been erected here on a permanent basis. It does have some problems that it is designed for 160m and some filters in the switching cause poor performance at the lower end of the MW band and it also is not suitable for NDB or Navtex on longwave. However it is a nice little performer with dx heard from Radio Puerto Cabello on 1290 khz at 0630.

All the usual stations were around such as 1130 WBBR, 1510 WWZN, 850 WEEI, 1030 WBZ etc.

Thursday evening I had nice reception of HLAZ on 1566. In fact the signals rose to insane levels at 1900. Later at 2000 Air Nagpur started to fade in but never dominated. Korea stayed in for a very long period.

1557 was there with WYFR at 1915 but I have heard it better from here. No sign of VOA Poro on 1170 but by this time the Polish beer had started to kick in.
