I'm down to only about 2 days work left to be all ready for the crane, but
it looks like I won't make the Italian contest with the big dish. I have
too many interruptions and can't get the time I need to finish. I will
shoot for the ARRl contest instead. I may get on with the old array, but
I'm not sure. The tower top pictures on my web site look like a work of
art, Check it out.
Tnx & 73

Hi Joe - will be on during NA & EU windows over the next few
w/ends incl this one - conditions appear to be excellent at the
present time with little or no Faraday but zero activity.
Hope your dish project is going well.

Hello Joe. Thanks for the help from you and the gang. What was the comment you made about having a 1296 amp that you would sell? I may be interested. I am beginning to heal over from getting the 432 amp. Hi.
My Info: #########
Curtis (Curt) Fouse
Route 2 Box 10
Washington, Wv. 26181
I use an FT 736-R transceiver. The 25 foot dish is scratch built from rusty steel tubing formed with a hb bender/roller. The center 15 feet of the dish is covered with 1/4 X 1/4 galvanized mesh, the outer part is 1 inch chicken wire. Weight about 1000 lbs. It is elevated through gear boxes with a garage door opener. Rotation uses a 1/8 HP gear motor driving a gear box from an old German Extruder. After the project I am a little better using my wire feed welder. Most all of the material was sorted out from what was on hand. From this you can guess that I have a junky qth.
