ANY offer made by OE3FVU or PE0WGA on Ebay is fraud. My username on Ebay doesn't reflect anything related to my callsigns !!!
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 as OE3FVU. Worked 88 countries, 38 USA States, 600+ squares on 2 meters. My goal is to acquire DXCC and WAS on 2 meters. Feel free to help me, by calling me.
Setup are 4x 14 ele MXP28 Yagi from M-Square with H and V feedlines (30 meters ECOFLEX 15), 2x MGF1302 pre-amps in each RX line, FT847 and IC275H (swapable H or V), 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 in the mast with an MGF102 pre-amp and ECOflex15 back to the shack to either FT-847 or IC-475H.The first successes with 70 cm EME have already been achieved by using 35 Watts only, without pre-amp. a 4 Meter beam is temporarely fitted in this mast but will be moved to the second mast soon.
SO I am QRV again on EME !
The second mast carrying a 6 element with MGF1302 preamp is 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 to the IC-275H.
Further plans are to complete the EME system with a dual IQ+ receiver allowing for more complex EME signal processing; and to complete the old IC-260E with a 70 MHz transverter to be prepared for that band as soon as the Austrian regulator.
As from mid 2010, I am enjoying early retirement, and hence I will be available for skeds at any time of any day (at least in principle ;). So feel free to contact me here or via my website www.oe3fvu.eu for any sked on 2, 4, 6 or 70 cms. (4 meters for X-Band only).
QSL will be sent to any first 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 charges. Typically I will be in PA every 3-4 months (april, september, december) . PA postal charges are about half of the austrian ones. If, howver, you would like a QSL directly on a short notice, please send me a direct QSL with some green stamps in it NO SASE or SAE please.
Furthermore, from time to time (every 2 - 3 months) I upload all QSO's to E-QSL - and I would like to upload to:
Since a few months I can not upload to LotW; I must say that the LotW software is not state-of-the-art; a typical example of how security is implemented in a VERY user unfriendly way. Until I receive the proper support (which was requested 2 months ago and still nil today on 31 may 2012) there will be no uploads to LotW.
