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.

Day 3 – Sunday 22 October 2017

This day will surely go into the history books as the best DX-day at Knollehof.  

Frank managed to hear a lot of “First” stations.Take a look here.

But the revelation of the day was 5AN Adelaide on 891 kHz from Australia.  We heard that one before but now with a really nice and clear ID and while Veurne is a bit further from Adelaide than Walsoorden we added 96 km to our DX-record 😊

Also on Sunday, we replaced the separated wire for half a day by the twisted pair beverage. At first sight it looked like the separated wire beverage performed better. Several IQ files were recorded for evaluation but this still has to be done in depth. We will probably not throw away the twisted pair concept completely while this is much easier to put up. If anybody is interested in the test files please get in contact. 

Here are a few pictures from the different set ups.
