My name is Wolfgang. I am a middle-aged guy, born in Austria, never shaved and work for a large semiconductor company.
My academic background is Communication Technology and Electronics. Of course I have a proper radio amateur license, hi.
I am happy about everything I can do by myself. And I am addicted to microwave radio...
I spend a lot of my free time time together with my wife (OE8PZY) for dancing, golf, large scale fireworks (also with my wife, we both made a proper license for it), exotic beer tasting and maybe a little skiing. We are like to travel quite a bit across Europe. If some time is left, I use it for my electronics projects, restoring and replicating old computers, arcade machines (I have some at home as well) and not to forget amateur radio on the highest possible bands!
You can find me in Hübners "whoiswho" or on Linkedin. Contact me first (see below) and I tell you my nicknames and/or homepages on these sites.

About my rigs:
Stationary: FT-450AT + EMCOM II for the lower bands (SSB/PSK31/PSK63), FT-736R + 23cm module with rotor and 70cm and 23cm Yagi antennas (about to be installed).
Portable: 2x FT-817ND with transverters for all bands starting at 23cm up to millimeter waves (currently up to 122GHz - mainly with parts from DB6NT
1.2m Grid-Dish (rfHamDesign) for 23cm to 3cm, dedicated smaller (Procom 50/25cm) dishes above.
Mobile: FTM-400, several handheld transceivers for FM, C4FM and DMR.
About my lab:
Equipment for spectrum analysis and power measurement up to 122GHz from Anritsu (special thanks to OE2JOM and DL2AM
for their support and experience sharing). I also bought quite some of my lab equipment at Rosenkranz Elektronik
. If you are living close by and need some measurement done I'll be glad to help (if my time, YL and QRL allows).
Equipment for SWR / S-parameter / network analysis (VNWA) up to 26.5GHz from HP.
Equipment for power and frequency analysis up to 26.5GHz from Anritsu and XL microwave.
Equipment for NF noise and gain analysis up to 18GHz from HP.
Calibrated measurement equipment and voltage supplies from Keithley.
Arbitrary function generator and 4ch DSO up to 250MHz BW from Pico Technology.
Digital analsysis tools e.g. 36ch LA and protocol analyser (for PCI, USB, ...) up to 500MHz from TechTools.
Powerful Lab PC with GPIB and USB/Uart control for the equiment with fast 8-core Intel Processor, 32GB RAM, 8GB 3D-Video, and 512GB M.2 SSD (and of course Win7 Pro 64bit).
Software packages like Matlab/Simulink (noncommercial license), Target 3001 Economy (commercial license) and several microwave design tools (academic/educational or open source) like QUCS.
