I’ve been licensed since 1995 when I started as ON2BBX. Nine months later I became ON1DDE. In october 1998 I achieved the HAREC full license and obtained the call sign ON4CIP, eventually I applied in november 2008 for my definitive call sign ON7FD (“FD” stands for my personal name).
Between 2004 and 2018 I was almost completely inactive as a ham radio amateur due to professional reasons. Since 2018 I have slowly started rebuilding my home station.
Prefer operating on shortwave (HF) in SSB and experiments now and then with FT8 and other digital modes. Main interests are DX hunting and antenna/propagation studies.
I am also a member of B-EARS (Belgian Emergency Amateur Radio Service)
I love receiving paper QSL-cards via BUREAU or DIRECT and are greatly appreciated. QSL info can be found here.
