Hi Joe:

Everything worked out fine last night.  I was able to reach Don on the
telephone and move the sked to 0300.  I needed the extra time to get
setup.  Unfortunately I heard nil from Don during the sked.  I thought I
heard someone on frequency, before the start time, but nothing during
the sked.  Around 0320, I gave up and went down to .010 to call CQ.
After a few CQs, WA1JOF showed up calling CQ.  Signal strength was not
bad, but he had a big "wuuup" to his signal.  The signal sounded more
like arroura then EME.  It took a 2nd transmission before I could
identify him.  We completer a good (O/O) QSO.  After we finished, G4CCH
showed up and called Don several times, but Don did not reply.  I then
had a quick SSB QSO with Howard.

TNX for the help.

Hi Joe, Well, we are almost there. After a lot of trials and tribulations
with a recalcitrant tracking controller box...Long story,,,but it was a
bad ground on the S-100 offset encoder...We gotr calibrated and up on the
moon tonite..Just in Listening mode...After I learned how to correctly
dial in the track offset...I found the Moon and heard J, K5JL 579. He was
2 khz higher than he said he was...No problem...Just like his scatter sig
on 6m...High by 2 khz!! He then cq'd and was answered by Frank, W2UHI,
nice 559 copy hr in my 500 hz BW with no audio processing. Don, WA1JOF
then called J...He was dirt weak here until I decided to check the elevation
manually as J was down a couple of S units...Up he came to a solid 519...After
a telephone hiatus...I tuned across Allen K2UYH in SSB QSO with G4CCH...Both
had nice Q5x5 SSB sigs....I then heard G4CCH do a couple of 2.5 min cw
CQ's. He was a steady 559 on the meter. I had a chance to manually tweek
the dish and set up the rx....It is nice to remember to put the 500 hz
stuff back in!! altho he was q5 in the 2.7 SSB BW of my old TS-850S. All
in all a fun night...Thanks especially to J and Darrell, VE9DW, for their
help in figuring out the tracking box problem!! And to J for all his efforts.
The TX stuff is close!! 73 Bruce K0YW.
