From: WD5AGO@worldnet.att.net (T & G HENDERSON)
On the Nov contest weekend I will be on 23cm calling CQ on or about
0.033 with out RIT tracking it makes it a pain for the new opp's here
to calculate RIT after station is heard calling CQ. My window is
limited to start at 25 deg on rise to 4 hours after that. After contest
I will reconfigure station which may take some time (months).

Things have finally worked themselves out. My antennas had lots of problems
with water in the feedlines and positioning, but after testing on the moon,
I feel everything is up to snuff for the contest. I'll be on tonight and on
full tilt for the contest. Hope to move up from 500 watts to 1,000 by then.
Open for schedules.

Subj: NET NOTES for NOV 18, 2000

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Melum)
9.2 meter dish progress: I fabricated a brake for the elevation drive,
fixed a few odds and ends, full system checkout and all set to go on 432
for the contest, except for mother nature. We are experiencing high winds
to 65 mph (I believe they have hit 80 at my place). If the wind subsides,
I may be able to get on for moonrise on the 19th. If I don't get to
operate on Sunday, I will be traveling to Chicago and Indianapolis next
week through the 30th, so probably no chance to get on until the next SW.
The 16 X 12 yagi array is officially decommissioned. I will try to update
the webpage this weekend.
Tnx & 73
