Subj: F5HRY ARRL EME 23cm
Date: 11/19/00 10:12:34 AM Eastern Standard Time
I spent a little while this morning (11/19) on 23cm EME with
my weaky rig and worked OE9XXI, N2IQU and OZ4MM.
OE9XXI was the loudest, peaking 529 on my modest
16x23 F9FT, phased with RG213 and "T" N couplers,
and amplified with and old 0.8 dB BV preamp ...
Heard also F5PAU and others unidentified signals.
TX power was less than 500W from a TH338.
I am looking forward to find the time to set up my
3.10m dish waiting in the backgroung of my garden !
73's to you and the EME community

Noticed that there was a communication error on my score. My totals are
70cm 25 x 16 with 5 ones : GW3XYW, G4YTL, KA0Y, K5AZU, UA3PTW. Of
course these guys were worked in October.
23cm 26 x 18 with 3 new ones: K5GW, IK2MMB, EA3UM. Was only really on
for the second pass of this November weekend as the wind was really
howling for the first pass. Wish I would have had more time as 1296
really sounded good with lots of activity.
I plan on being on 1296 for the next few months so will be sending you
some sked requests. ie I0UGB, HB9Q, LU8EDR??. ********

Had a good time in the contest, worked more stations. Hope to upgrade
antennas by next year. In the meantime am working on getting the new 1kw
amp on line. All set except for interface.
In know lots of people are working random, but with my small array, I
should run skeds and then random if I can hear them.
Open for skeds in Dec.
Hope to have new amp on line by then.

WA6PY - On Friday I decided to try on 1296 in the contest. At the afternoon
I unpack all my 1296 rig from moving boxes packed back in Sweden, and
mounted 4 ft dish f/D 0.37 with W2IMU feed. I was ready to go at Moon rise,
but I could not hear any body. Then I measured deepness of the dish and
found that focus should be at 50 cm. Original mounted 14 GHz feed had
distance 65 cm. After mowing feed to the calculated focus I immediately
heard N2IQ and OE9XXI, but I could not get attention with my 300W at the
feed. Next day I spend on optimising feed position. Finally I've got 4.5 dB
CS/G and 6 dB Sun noise. Next night I heard OE9XXI - loudest, N2IQ K5JL
OE5JFL, two other stations with #5 in the callsign, one of them F5P? and
SM3 probably AKW.
I could not get attention of OE9XXI and N2IQ, and later my only TH328
I am in desperate need of TH328 in good shape. I can test those tubes. My
old 3xGI7B PA I sent back to Mike SP5CJT when I was moving from Sweden.
My installation is temporary, due to the fight with the neighbours who do
not like that I built fences around my property. For now I can not erect
big dish before they will calm down. Mean time I am searching for big gear
for rotating the real dish. I visited almost every junk yard in San Diego
