QSL image for PA4EME

PA4EME is the latest callsign of Frank Veldhuijsen, born 1963 in Heerlen, the Netherlands. I became interested in amateur radio in 1977 and started as a Dutch SWL PA-5751. I obtained a technical licence in 1979 as PE1FEY. 1981 I moved to Begium and started as ON8YA and later as ON4AUD. My first EME-QSO was made in 1984 with W5UN (who else at that time). Starting with a single 9 element as a SWL, I ended up with 8 x 15 el as ON4AUD. Because of QRL I moved back to the Netherlands in 1992 and suffered from the famous dip in activity; working on a carreer, MSc, getting maried, having kids. Moved back, I received the callsign PA3GIJ but it haven’t been used a lot. I restarted DX activities in 2001 and changed the callsign to PA4EME.

I'm not active on HF, sometimes on 50 MHz and 70 MHz. Main interest is 144 MHz weak signal and DX hunting. Most of my gear is home made.

For 144 MHz I'm using a Javornik 144-14 transverter followed by a FT-847 or a R2CW. The current antenna is a 14 el LFA with 3 reflectors. Preamplifier 0.22 dB (ATF54143). Recently I banned HV out of the shack and put the GS35's out of order. A SSPA with 2 LDMOS Freescale devices and which can run 2 kW easy.

I am a member of the Make More Miles on VHF team. My main task is publishing the Sporadic E reviews, Troporeports and the MMMonVHF newsletter. I'm also manager for the 144 MHz Meteorscatter Sprint Contest organised by MMMonVHF in cooperation with the magazines DUBUS and Funk-Telegramm.
