Between 1965 when becoming radioamateur and spring 1968 we used wire antennes for transmission on HF, long wire, zepp and dipoles.
One of them was the W3DZZ a populair shorted multi band dipole.
 


 
From 1968 till 1970 we started with a 3 band vertical from Hygain the 14AVQ replaced after some time with a home brew cubical quad.

For mobile fox hunting on 2 meters we used a turnable 9 el tonna on the car roof



 
We moved to near Brussels in 1970 and installed our first tower, 18 meter high with on top a 2 el 3band cubical quad.

In 1972 we moved to our actuel Qth and changed the quad to a duo band Yagi.
