It has been some time since I have been QRV. I was down due to a move. I
just got my 70 cm EME array back up and heard a faint Echo on Monday
September 11. I am not quite ready for Skeds at this time, I need to
tweak the system a little more and check sun noise. I don't want to
waste anyone's time until I think I have the system up to snuff. I am
working also on getting the HF system going. I have been tuning in your
20 meter nets from time to time on a indoor wire antenna. I hope to have
some type of temporary HF antenna up so I can take part in the nets
before winter. It has been raining a lot here in Virginia and all I seem
to get done is mow grass. This has slowed down my antenna project
progress a lot!
My new address is : ########
