To honour the ANZAC spirit, service and sacrifice, a group of Belgium radio amateurs will be on air this Saturday, ANZAC Day, April 25. The Royal Belgian Amateur Radio Union (UBA) is setting up its OP0PPY station at Dreve, next to the Polygon Wood Memorial of WWI.

There are several stations on HF, VHF and UHF looking to include many contacts with Australia, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Among the array of equipment for OP0PPY is a Hex Beam for the HF bands. Also on display from WWI is a private collection of communication apparatus and photographs. The "Brothers in Arms Memorial Project" is part of the world commemoration of WW1 and the Centenary of Gallipoli which led the ANZAC troops to the western front in Europe, including Belgium.
