ON1418 Special Event Stations
In light of the centennial of the first world war we are setting up a special even station in November for all the years of the duration of the Great War. Every year in November we will activate another SES callsign.
With our Special Event Stations we commemorate the first world war in Belgium, also known as the Great War 1914-1918, during which hundreds of thousands of soldiers were dedicated to defend our country. Many of them were heroes and we remember them in our prayers. Belgium was completely destroyed after the war and the first flower that grew was the poppy. Thousands and thousands grew in the area around Ypres (Ieper) West-Belgium. Hence the reason this region was given the name "Flanders Fields".
Special QSL-cards designed by ON6DSL Luc will be sent via UBA QSL-buro after each november activation. YOUR QSL IS NOT REQUIRED - WE SEND QSL TO ALL LOGGED CONTACTS! We will also upload the full log to Club Log, eQSL and LoTW. If you are not a member of any buro you may send your QSL direct, however please be aware, postage in Belgium is expensive. PSE send your QSL and SSAE together with 3 USD ($) to the club address.
Different club members operate various HF bands and modes in multiple sessions. Most of the operating sessions are supported by real-time QSL lookup functionalities. You may want to check your QSL here!
