To commemorate the crossing of the river Dender from Schendelbeke to Onkerzele and the inspection of troops in Onkerzele, the UBA (Belgian Amateur Radio Society) section Geraardsbergen (Grammont) will deploy a special event shortwave amateur radio station at the location where the inspection of troops was held in 1815. The call sign used will be OT2ØØGBN.
 
  • On Friday, May 29th, 2015 the special event station will be operating in Morse code on Shortwave 3-28MHz from Schendelbeke.
  • On Saturday, May 30th, 2015 there will be Voice operations on shortwave 3-28MHz from the town of Onkerzele, from the same location where the inspection of troops took place (now part of ‘De Gavers’ recreation area). 
 
The special event operation is a token of appreciation of the Belgian amateur radio operators for the British and their support in liberating Belgium of French rule in 1815.
