I'm Back on VHF, a rather small antenna setup but I'm back.On 2m 4x 11el F9FT @ 18 and 21mover groundI'm also QRV on shortwave 80-10m with a Cushcraft R7 vertical. and a 42m off center fed dipole (FD4) will change soo to 2x 20m + open wire feed + symetric tuner.
Last week I was fortunate to receive my 144MHz DXCC award #140
All 118 submitted DXCC were accepted
On VHF I prefer te work DX in SSB/CW or meteor scatter SSB/FSK441

I was first licenced as PE1OGF back in November 1991 and mainly QRV on 144MHz in Tropo Meteor-scatter and EME. Also Iono-scatter and Aurora.
Till Dec 20 2001 my callsign was PE1OGF, I passed for my CW test and now I'm PA5MS !!! PE1OGF is QRT !!

I will QSL every QSO via buro.
All initial EME contacts will be QSL-ed direct
All direct cads I receive will be answered direct, no IRC or geenstamps needed.
I send direct cards in batches, once ever 2 months
Buro cards are send 2-3 times a year to the QSL-manager
All QSO's will be uploaded to LoTW and to E-QSL.cc
I prefer to receive cards via the buro as a cerrie on the pie ;-)
