ANY offer made by OE3FVU or PE0WGA on Ebay is fraud.If you find OE3FVU, PE0WGA as username on Ebay it doesn't reflect anything related to me !!!
First licensed in December 1975 in the Netherlands as PE0WGA . Since March 1995 living in Austria (using PE0WGA/OE - I was not eligable for using the CEPT assignement as I was living in OE !!!); since October 1995 QRV asOE3FVU. Worked 1113 countries, 42 USA States, 690+ squares on 2 meters. I am holder of the nr. 121 DXCC for 144 MHz.
I achieved my first goal in November 2013 with the DXCC on 144 MHz, next goal is WAS on 144 MHz as well.
To my fellow HAM’s in the USA: PLEASE Feel free to help me, by calling me!
144 MHz setup are 4x 14 ele MXP28 Yagi from M-Square with H and V feedlines (30 meters ECOFLEX 15), 2x CAVeme cavity LNA's in each RX line, 2x FT847 (2x WSJT9) and parallel feeding an IQ+ Rev. B. using MAP65.TX (V or H) is done typically with FT847 feeding an Henry 3002, with appr 1200 Watts Out on EME and 400 Watts out on MS. 4x 17 CueDee for 70 cms is fitted (theoretically as the have been taken out for mainetnance, I hope to put them back in in Spring 2015) in the mast with an MGF102 pre-amp and ECOflex15 back to the shack to an FT-847 or IC-475H.The first successes with 70 cm EME have already been achieved by using 35 Watts only, without pre-amp.
The second mast carrying a 6 element with MGF1302 preamp on 6 meters and is fed by either the FT-847 or - more typically - the IC-575H. The mast carries also a 9 element homebrew 2 meter antenna with MGF1302 pre-amp fed by the IC-275H.
Since 1974VHF has fascinated me and it still does. HF was never my thing, but as I recently obtained a 3 element SteppIr for 6 to 20 meters, this might change. the antenna was installed on 8 October 2014 between the 4 longyagi's for 2m, expectingthat there would be no negative influence on the 2m performance, as the antenna is at 90° compared to the azimuth of the 2m System. Indeed i can not find any degredation of the EME array (yet). Knowing that the 2m beams are in parallel to the SteppIr Elements, I expected severe performance degredation. Actually the performance was not bad at all, only the points of resonance were off in the main direction. On 180° could find only marginal resonance differences. I have than adapted ONLY the dirctor settings for optimal SWR and was than amazed by the performance of the antenna. I have not yet been very active on the bands, but i am certain that this will change. try to find me at JT65A segment on the band, where I will try to work as many stations with 1 or 3 Watts. If you hear me in any other mode, be sure that I won't be working at more than 100 Watts.
QSL will be sent to anyfirst contact via EME directly, provided that I can find the address in the net. Else, like any other QSL, I will send the card via the bureau. In practice that is once every 4 months.
Due to a horendous price increase for mail outside Europe the following apply for non-european Direct QSL: I will wait for sending the QSL cards until I am in a country with significant less postal charges. I will be in PA every 3-4 months (april, september, december) . PA postal charges are about half of the Austrian ones. If, however, you would like a QSL directly on a short notice, please send me a direct QSL with some green stamps in it.. NO NEED FOR SELF ADDRESSED ENVELOPES.
I sedn a QSL card for every QSO (except for QSO's made a PE0WGA before 1995 as I have no log available anymore), if you have not received a QSL yet, let me know; I will resend one - as long as I can find it as a valid QSO in my log that is. However I print out the QSL cards about once every 3 to 4 months so please have some patience. Again, if you need it quicker, let me know.
LoTW and e-QSL
I am a certified user of e-QSL. I will run an upload together with printing the QSL cards.
Last QSL run was on 26 June 2014 please allow for some time to receive your card
