Hamfest Zelzate 2001

For the First time the UBA-Sections GNT - GRC - TLS and ZLZ organized a common HAM-Fest in the St.Jan Baptiste clinic in Zelzate. The organization was as it has to be, great. 

Nice tables, wide corridors and a team of volunteers to make the event a success. 

For a first time organization I think it was a splendid start. A lot of HAM's came not only to look but also to buy and overall to enjoy the good old ham-spirit. I was surprised to encounter a lot of home-brewers on each side of the tables, selling and buying rare parts and long searched components.

I was there with some old PC-Stuff, radio tubes and books. Half of the stock was gone in the afternoon.

Next year we're back there

Everyone unpacking and preparing there stands.

Those who where not there may regret it, it was worth the displacement.

Felicitations to the organization, let it grow.

سُوۡرَةُ حٰمٓ السجدة / فُصّلَت
ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ وَهِيَ دُخَانٌ فَقَالَ لَهَا وَلِلْأَرْضِ ائْتِيَا طَوْعًا أَوْ كَرْهًا قَالَتَا أَتَيْنَا طَائِعِينَ ﴿١١
فَقَضَاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ فِي يَوْمَيْنِ وَأَوْحَىٰ فِي كُلِّ سَمَاءٍ أَمْرَهَا ۚ وَزَيَّنَّا السَّمَاءَ الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيحَ وَحِفْظًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ ﴿١٢

Surah Fussilat: Thereafter turned He to the heaven and it was as smoke, and said Unto it and Unto the earth: come ye twain, willingly or loth. They said: we come willingly. (11) Then He decreed them as seven heavens in two days, and revealed Unto each heaven the command thereof; and We bedecked the nether heaven with lamps and placed therein a guard. That is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knower. (12)

De hemelen en aarde (waren) een samenhangende massa. Wij hebben ze toen van elkaar gescheiden… Wij hebben de hemel tot een beschermend dak gemaakt … en de dag en de nacht, de zon en de maan geschapen. (Koran 41 11:12)
