My name is Jean (Pierre), Ham operator since 1975.
I reside in the historical city Ghent, East-Flanders, the Flemisch speaking part of Belgium.


I enjoy working low profile so I'm running mostly 100 Watt. (also for the neighbors)

My rig for HF is a Kenwood TS-990
Microphone Neumann TLM 103
SWR bridge  Powermaster.
Antenna rotator Create RC5-3.
As second rig I use the FT-991 for 2m, 70 cm and HF.
Portable FT-2DE.
Mobile a FT-857 with ATAS antenna and FTM-400DR.
For QRP  the FDM-DUO SDR HF  transceiver from ELAD, max. 5 Watt  out.


QRP software defined radio that you can use almost anywhere. The build quality looks perfect, also inside. Works great with or without computer.
Inside a small speaker and a lot of connections on the backside.
My rigs
My shack and  worked stations on 40 m phone.           

Some audio recordings I made from friends ZL1BMW, ZL1AIX and ZL2SQ on 40m band.

Because of local regulations and a lack of space I tryed different antennas with poor results. At last I found the solution in a magnetic loop antenna.
So in 2009 I started to build a magnetic loop antenna and after a few models the results where very satisfying. For the first time I could work real DX from my location.
Now I have a good working magnetic loop for 40 m.
The size is 2.5 m diameter, 4.2 m above ground level.

If you are interested in the way I calculated and made the magnetic loop antenna you find more information on the next pages, you find also a download for  the paper "Overview of the Underestimated Magnetic Loop  HF Antenna" from VK5KLT.
