Just a few notes on my call, as I do cause some confusion at times!
2E1FVS HOLDS THE UK's INTERMEDIATE LICENCE
The “2E1” prefix isn’t heard very often anymore, I think this is due to the majority of original 2E1’s upgrading. Since been back QRV from Sept 2007, I have worked a total of , 2 other 2E1 stations.Back in 1997 when I took the exam it was for the Novice Class B license. 50MHz and up. If I wanted to use HF back then, I would have had to do the 5wpm Morse test and change to a Novice Class A – “2E0”. Whilst I spent a few years QRT, the UK dropped the Morse requirement, as did a lot of country’s. This automatically upgraded me to an Intermediate Licencee. So today, I can enjoy HF and continue causing confusion with my unique call!
I only have a small station, a Yaesu FT-920, with antennas which have all been mainly verticals of some sort, and mainly homebrew.
Current (marked **) and past antennas used here.
80m - Inverted L
40m - 2 Phased Verticals / **Single Vertical / Dipole
**20m - Vertical Dipole
**15m 2ele Moxon @ 7m
Multiband - Hygain AV18

If you need or would like a QSL from me, please QSL DIRECT to the above address.
I am not a member of the RSGB so I can not send or receive cards via the buro.
