This year the SSB contest starts on 3 Feb at 1100 and continues to 4 Feb at
1200. (The intention is to give everyone one common moon pass.)
Operation is on 1296 only. Scoring will be contact points times number of
Grid Sectors (IO, JM, FN, ...). SSB to SSB contacts will count as 2 points.
SSB to CW (or CW to SSB) 1 point. The exchange is your Grid Sector.


The date for the Eur EME Contest have been set as 31 MARCH/01 APRIL for 432
MHz, 2.3 GHz to 5.7 GHz operation, and 28/29 APRIL for 144
MHz, 1.3 GHz and 10 GHz activity.

From: (

Hello Joe,
Merry XMAS to everybody and many thanks for rearranging my scheds.
I do not know, whether the question about my 23cm-EME-activity
was from KA0Y (anyway, do not have his email-address), so
please give this information to the net:
I'm not qrv on 23cm EME at the moment (have only one 67el without
elevation). I'm building a new PA for 23cm with RS1064 at the 
moment, hope to get that ready within de next year, then will be 
back with 4x67el or (if I will find a nice offer) with a small dish
(looking for a mesh-dish @ 2.8-3.0 m for a nice price, perhaps 
I will start to built one by myself next spring). 
I will put a spot here on the NET when I have become qrv on 23cm.

Best 73 de Juergen, DL8OBU

Reply-to: (ugw)


I (SM2BYA) will drive down to the old family farm in central Sweden tomorrow.
Once I am there, will try to fire up the 432 MHz gear and get on the moon.
Should have the system going by New Year's Eve and am available for skeds
anytime thereafter until Jan. 6, 2001. Jan. 5/6 would be best though.

Locator: JP81NX

Call used: SM3BYA

Rig:    450 watts RF
        1.2 dB feedline loss
        8 x Tonna 21 ele yagis, H pol
        MGF 1412, 0.40 dB NF
        Conv/Drake R-4C/Timewave 59+ DSP filter

Last time I was there, had bad VSWR on transmit, but the symptoms looked like
water in a coax connector. Should be easy to fix.

I don't have access to e-mail or the Web at the farm. Anyone want to try, please
call me at +46 652 102 92 or +46 652 103 81.

Season's greetings
