Hi Joe:

I wonder if you could pass to GM0ONN that I won't make our sked today as
I want to concentrate on the 1296 SSB Contest.

I was on 432 last night, but I had problems and did not make it on the
moon until nearlly the end of my JH0WYF sked...  my preamp failed.

I thought the problem was in the wires that provide the voltage to the
preamp. Trouble shooting was complicated by snow on the ground.  We have

had snow for more than 3 weeks.  This is unusual in New Jersey.  By
the time I had the problem located and the preamp replaced, it was the
start of sked time.  Then I discovered a problem with my AZ readout.  By

the time I had the readout fixed and had my dish on the moon, the
sked was almost over!  (JH0WYF sent me an e-mail that could not make the
sked because it was out of his window. I did not read his message until
this morning.) After the sked I did work N9AB and JA2YT sent a QRZ, but
did not respond to my reply.  I was still hearing echoes up to
about 0405.

I plan to be on 432 on Sunday evening/Monday morning, if anyone is
interested in skeds.

TNX & 73, Al - K2UYH

Hi Joe, 
Please tell to W1QC that he must listen more carefully , I called him last night many times without reply. He should get I guess bit better preamp, to hear the other stations than big guns !
Not many stations yesterday, but all with good signal including SV1OE, also CWNR, hi. 

Greetings to all on the net,

Subj:    Antenna Problems
Date:   2/13/00 7:07:29 AM Eastern Standard Time
From: (Harry Price)

Dear Joe,

Experiencing problems here with dish probably resulting from ice damage.
Trying to work it out, however, please cancel my skeds with John and
Fortuanto for today so they do not waste time trying to hear me. Major
problem is getting the time to  isolate the problem.  

Thank you. 

73, Harry K3HZO

Subj:    Sorry for W1ZX
Date:   2/13/00 9:35:04 AM Eastern Standard Time

Dear Joe,

I got the short term arranged yesterday sked with W1ZX just in
time with your fine net notes, but wind was too strong yesterday,
so I could not be QRV.
I will be QRV today (Sunday, 13.2.00) between 19 and 22 UTC,
and I am open for skeds again ( W1ZX, WA9FWD, WA8WZG, VE4MA, VE6TA,...).

I also will try to be QRV in the net to confirm any "online-skeds" !

DF3RU, G3LQR, F5AQC, I0UGB, DF4PV, OZ6OL, DL0SHF,OE5EYM ...all in the
last 2 or 3 months, BUT still 10 (TEN) QSLs missing...even from very well known
BIG GUNS on 23cm EME....hmmmmmm...hmmmmmm

73 and thanks, dear Joe, for your great job in the net and with the net-notes!
