Due to several
non-ham radio obligations I have not been on air for about 2 years. The problems
with the exciter and
power amplifier are also not finally solved. However, the hydraulic cylinder
for the elevation drive has been replaced
with an oil motor, so the antenna pointing works correct now.
the equipment for 13cm and 3cm are already built, but there are enough
things left to be done, so due to my
other duties I probably will not be on air on those bands before 2002.
