Beginn of 2014 i have moved to my current QTH in Trausdorf (Burgenland county), due to the move, my callsign has been changed from OE3WOG to OE4WOG. I am retired, but still work part-time. I am member of the BARC ( Burgenländischer Amateurfunk Radio Club ) and of the AMRS ( Austrian Military Society ). Both organisation are embedded into the Austrian Amateur Radio Society - OEVSV ( Österreichischer Versuchssendeverband ) In the BARC i work as a deputy club manager and i also take responsibilty as a manager of the microwave section inside of OEVSV.
The Burgenland is the easternmost county of Austria with a border to Hungary. It is a small county with an area of 3.965 square Km and appr. 277.600 inhabitants. It is not an industrial area, but well known for famous wines. The Lake Neusiedel is a well known landmark in Burgenland with an area of 320 square Km, a length of 36 Km, 14 Km wide, but only 1,8 m in depth. The Lake is a bird paradise and a recreation area with nice sailing and windsurfing capabilities.
My experiences and electronic education in radio communications goes back to the time when transitors came to live and started to replace electron tubes in most applications. I got licenced in 1968 with my first callsign OE3WHC.
Today, my focus is based on microwave amateur radio work. I am the beacon keeper of the OE1XGA microwave beacon in JN88EG on Mt. Kahlenberg, located in the North corner of the City of Vienna. The beacon operates on 3 frequency bands on 5.760,883 MHz, on 10.368,880 MHz and on 24.048,924 MHz .
world DX record on the 122,250 GHz Frequency Band on 19. October 2013.
as a team of SHF/EHF enthusiasts we have extended the DX world record on on the 122 GHz frequency band from 114 Km ( held in 2008 in IARU Region 2 ) to 132km. The team and locations:
Rudi, OE5VRL on Mt. Plöckenstein, in JN68WS14QP, 1.360m asl,
Richard, OE3WRA & Christian, DL3MBG & Wolfgang, OE3WOG on Geiereck, Mt. Untersberg, in JN67MR13Bk, 1.708m asl
we started QSO´s on 24 GHz followed on 47 GHz and made the final antenna alignments on 76 GHz. Our equipment consists of a barefoot harmonic mixer for receive and a harmonic diode trippler for transmitt directions.
To change from receive to transmitt we have to replace the equipment on both sides. The path was LOS, see pic below.
