Veurne – Knollehof Belgium

In October 2017 and again in January 2018 I was able to dx at Knollehof / Veurne in Belgium not far from the Belgian – French border. Dunkirk is 20 minutes away. We stay at a vacation house just out of Eggewaartskappelle.

As you can see in the photographs, all of the dx is done these days for Mediumwave DX on the excellent Jaguar software. We also use the amazing Perseus SDR receiver which even after 10 years is still the best SDR dx machine around. There are a lot of new SDR’s around but the old girl still out-performs them all.

The antennas we use are 400m beverages. To Japan, Far East, South America, North America and for the first time in January 2018 to Alaska.

About Dave Onley

I'm an Australian dxer formerly of Melbourne who has been listening to radio since 1976. I have lived in The Netherlands since 2006. I am interested mainly in Mediumwave, Navtex, FM and NDB. I also like Tropical Band Dx and Shortwave. I'm a big DXpeditioner. I travel to remote regions several times per year to hear good dx.
