Please insert this in your Net Notes for me. I have received 5 QSL's all
looking for a VE9DW QSL card form the first half on the ARRL contest,
problem I do NOT have made up at the moment for VE9DW....soon perhaps.
The second point I wish to express is this: If the Stations requesting
VE9DW QSL card are NOT an Initial and simply card collectors I believe it
would be prudent to enclose return postage as well. Cost, especially
overseas, if very high and I do have to maintain friends with my XYL, hi hi.
Regards & Thanks, Darrell, VE1ALQ

Just a quick note before heading for bed - ended the contest with 77x32.
Very slow on this second weekend - partly the result having had such a
good first weekend. Thanks to everyone who stayed up late / got up early
to give some points away.
Initials now stand at 311 (if KE2N is a new one - very good signal).
Now the contest is over, can we give some thought to the EME QSO
procedures? They haven't been published since 1992!!!
A draft for comment is at Klaus's site, http://www.dl4eby.de This is
the same as the Rio paper. The main difference from older drafts is that
it's much more about random QSOs, with more practical advice on "how to
Allen is publishing the paper copy in the NL, but I hope we can start a
good discussion on 14.345 and on MOON-NET. Remember, it's only a *draft*
at present, and anything can be changed if someone points out a good

Very difficult to find new stations to work in the last session.... many
very loud stations crammed in between 1296.000 & 1296.025 all calling CQ
and very few qso's happening until someone new turned up... then the
massive pile up!!
I managed to work Don WA1JOF 529/539... he called me earlier than the
Didn't find F1OAT again so only partial QSO with him.... would like to try
again, perhaps a sked would be a good idea fo next month.
Someone called several times between 0900 & 0915.. but I was unable to
identify them, very very weak.
Barry VE4MA was not much louder but we completed OK O/RO.
Gotaways were JH3EAO and W0KJY... both heard easily in QSO's but never got
to work them.
Worked K4QI with 2 deg elevation, and heard K2UYH, VE9DW and my own echoes
down to moonset.
Made 3 extra initials this weekend... now standing at 139, 28 DXCC
Countries, 22 US States and WAC.
My final score in the contest was 84 x 32.
This was obviously my best EME contest ever ... many thanks to all who took
time to work me and the odd station who called and I failed to hear them.
84 QSO's is one more than the total initials worked with my old 8ft dish in
16 years !!!!!
We'll see how it all pans out after its all over.
Best 73 & GL with the dish project

Subj: DL0AO: 70cm random with 80W

for the night from friday to saturday I went to bed early, as my son
normally likes to play with me specially during the night. This time he
prefered to sleep, so I fell out of the bed pretty early, and I decided to
go to the DL0AO location. The moon was still over 45 deg. elevation, so I
could not bring the 2m antennas in position.
I pointed our 2x 38 El. M2 to the moon. At the time we use a IC 202 with
transverter, as my 432/28 MHz TVTR died after testing 2xGS35b on HF (got
some RF inside). The amplifier is a brick running 90W out.
I made a very easy QSO with N2IQ with 0/0. K1FO was so kind to pick me out
of the noise, too. We made it with o/m report.
I was very pleased to see the antennas working. Unfortunatelly I have not so
much time to work on the TH327 amp. for 70cm.
Called and got "QRZ": HB9Q, OH2PO
Called but no reply: KA0Y, K5GW, OZ4MM, OE9ERC, G3SEK.
Hope to be really "on air" one day.....(never ending story, hi)
