The Österreichischer Versuchssenderverband (OEVSV) (in English, Austrian Amateur Radio Society) is a national non-profit organization for amateur radio enthusiasts in Austria. Key membership benefits of the OEVSV include the sponsorship of amateur radio operating awards, radio contests, and a QSL bureau for members who regularly communicate with amateur radio operators in other countries. OEVSV represents the interests of Austrian amateur radio operators before Austrian and international telecommunications regulatory authorities.

The OEVSV is organized on a federal model, with a Dachverband, the National Umbrella Organisation, nine Landesverbände, the Provincial Associations, and the Austrian Military Radio Society.[1] OEVSV is the national member society representing Austria in the International Amateur Radio Union.[2]


OEVSV organizes annually two amateur radio contests:[3]

  • The All-OE 40/80m contest and cross-service event, always on May 1
  • The All-OE 160m contest in November
