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.

WAL19 kick off
We are up and running. We have beverage antennas to the Far East 60°, India 90°, South America 240° and North America 290°. We expected a very muddy field but the owner had put winter wheat on it and was kind enough to make no objections to trespass the field. Furthermore the weather was fine. Unfortunately we had an issue finding a bad connection in the extremely long coax for the south American beverage and our PMR devices didn't reach far enough to stay in contact. But after all it works now. The only thing we need now is better conditions.
And off course, after running on and off a lot of times along the beverages, we need some food. A terrific Chinese meal brought by Marc.
