I hear k2uyh trying to make his schedule with KJ7F, he was trying to
pass over a report.  Signals were wery weak cause we were having an
aurora at the time.  Quite noisy here on 6 at the time, two other very
eak signal heard here, but not able to copy their call signs. 
Everything looks like someone came and painted huge layers of frost on
everything.  Maybe that is the reason why my SWR went sup all of a

Great holidays to and happy moon hunting to everyone.  Lets not try an
knock Santa off his destined route with our signals.

Hi Joe,

I have been qrv last night (this morning in Italy) on 23cm. Had few qso's
including new initiali KA0Y with very good signal. Congrats KA0Y, what's
your equipment alike? Also heard pretty decently W7QX calling on his sked
at 0300z on 1296.050, could have been a qso with new initial but I decided
too late to call him not to disturb him on his sked. The thing that
surprises me it is to see here that QX was only running 50Watts.  My echoes
ranged from never heard so strong to very poor, lots of qsb, wheather here
is rain for two months every day got mushrooms in the shack... 73 to all!

Hi Joe,

A near miss with Terry last night.   The pol rotator stopped working
again, but this time the situation was reversed.  I could hear Terry FB,
but he could only tell I was there.  Terry has a good signal signal and
should be able to make many QSOs.

If this cold WX continues, I am going to put some heater tap around the
pol rotator.  It was again working fine this morning.

I will be away on business (in Phoenix, AZ) during the next SW... maybe
I can get on from CJO or GBI's QTH?  Thus no skeds for the SW.  I can be
on before of after weekends for reskeds.

73, Al - K2UYH



   Nuts.  I thought for sure I would be able to work you tonight.   I
hearing my own echoes during the entire sched and I could see you on the
waterfall display the whole time.  But I could never get more than a
here and there.   Enough to be sure it was you calling but nothing more.
You were just to weak.

   Thanks for the effort and maybe next time luck will be with us.
