Hi All this is Sergio IK2MMB.
I'm sorry to have lost K3AX.  I noticed I have a problem of overheating to
the preamp box, this is induced by the Sun, not the electronics inside.
Once this happens I definitely loose amplification in the rx line, most
likely also rx performance (NF). A cooking preamp is no good. So the good
season it's bringing some problems... Can't wish for rain anyhow, hi!  I
have enough experience that tells me not to use plastic boxes for
Sun-exposed mountings but sometimes I make that mistake again... After the
qso with W2UHI I definitely had to give up, will catch you later AX.  Had
the same problem in the morning with a station around 013 which was making
very long CQ's, listened for 40 minutes but couldn't copy the callsign, was
it still you AX?  It's going to be fixed soon anyhow.

Best to all,

Sergio MMB

Hi Joe,

Great progress on the big dish project.  Outlined in detail on the website,
but in a nutshell, I have the AZ/EL mount almost ready to start assembly of
the steel angle.  The pilings are in place, ended up with three 8 inch
schedule 40 casings, driven to 18 feet deep with 12 feet out of the ground.
 I plan to construct the dish on top of my trailer.  I will position it
tomorrow so I can start putting trusses together.

As can be seen on the website, the pile driving thing was a real hoot.

Erich, OE9ERC and Werner, OE9WRS, visited as planned on 7/28.  Very nice
visit.  I hope they enjoyed Alaska.


Tnx & 73
