Over the years I have written well over 30 articles in Belgian and foreign (mainly the Netherlands, France and the UK) specialist magazines. In addition I was a contributor to the magazine of the VRA, the Flemish association of hams (radio amateurs) from 2009 till 2012. For them I wrote a total of 36 articles, which formed the basis of my second book. Hereafter you will find some of the relevant articles. As you can see from the title, some are written in Dutch, some in French and some in English.
