Subj:         UHF: 13cm operating times in contest

OK Guys, thanks for all the inputs, the consensus seems to be as follows:
 We operate on the 19th Nov on 2304.1,2320.1and 2424.1 on all bands we try
and stay  +-20KHz
   0200-0330 Eu  to work the JAs and Ivo, ZS6AXT  and other Europeans
   0830-1030 Eu and ZS6 to work the USA ( and Europeans of course)
   1800-1900 for the US/JA window
Constraints to watch for are W5LUA window start at 0900, ZS6AXT window ends
at 0945, F2TU only operates  2304-2306 .UK stations can only tx on 2320.
Let me know as soon as possible if there are problems with this, and
if/when we can agree I will ask Al if it can get into the NL. I hope that
this will result in a good crop of QSOs on 13 cm.
73 to all, Peter G3LTF

Hi Joe;
Several EME'ers have been asking about John, VE1ZJ...Looking for Nova 
Scotia.  John's situation is this:
2m:   1 Yagi out of 6 working...slightly QRV, worked 10 in first half.
70cm: 6 out of 6 Yagi's DOWN...Not QRV
23cm: Dish is OK but Mast is twisted into two pieces, as well as Hard Line. 
NOT QRV.
He is QRV on 135Khz....EME????????????? I dough it (;o}
I did not complete with LA8LF, very very windy and could not see the moon 
at -18deg.

weak Sig. it may be me.  Have a great Net & Best 73, Darrell Ve9DW on EME
