  • Caching: We have installed a caching plugin which might cause some problems. It may be that some links that lead to pages on this website, not work. If you find one, please post an email with the link and on which the page the link doesn’t work! Thanks in advance.
  • New Website: The new website is after more than two months of work completed and online! We now need to test every page and see if all the photos are visible, but it looks like there are quite a few errors that need to be repaired. More work… 🙂
  • Radio op afstand bedienen?
    Dit staat er op de site van het Agentschap Telecom te lezen:

    Sommige radiozendamateurs hebben een radiostation dat op afstand kan worden bediend.
    Als de zendamateur zelf de enige is die het radiostation kan bedienen, is dit gebruik toegestaan.
