Hi Joe, 
I am looking forward to making new friends in this eme group and there are 
some old ones from my 6 meter scatter operation in the 60's that are eme

I came across your WebPages via a link from E
I would like to offer the Andrew's Heliax and Connectors I have collected 
to my fellow Ham's out there, especially the EME enthusiasts out there,
might you help me?

It seems to me enthusiasts utilizing higher than HF frequencies would 
understand the value and necessity of the superior qualities of Andrew's
I have priced the pieces at about 30 or so percent of new prices and 
the majority of the pieces are actually new. (Coax is all new)

I am located in North West New Jersey for pick up of the larger cables
or I can UPS the smaller pieces

If you can take a look at the attached list of product's I have and let
me know your thoughts about them I would appreciate it.

Thank you very much,

With a dish the size of yours, it's not surprising that you hear most
people at the first tap of the key. However, that certainly isn't true
for people with smaller antennas, or for beginners whose stations aren't
optimized yet. 

Also operators on microwave bands may want more time to find the other
station because of the larger doppler and frequency setting errors.

Another thing to think about is whether we need to co-ordinate the
standard changeover time with the 2m ops.

I'm copying this to MOON-NET as well as to Joe's NETNEWS.
Open for discussion, folks...

Hi Joe,

I am sticking my neck out and setting up a bunch of skeds for 2-3-4 Feb.
The system is mechanically in good shape, and I plan to have my
improvements to the feed done in about a week.  The only thing that will
stand in my way for making all the skeds is the weather, which has been
absolutely terrible, but I am betting it will improve.  I am forwarding my
sked requests in a sked81 format, attached.

I have recently acquired a 220 MHz module for my FT-736.  As soon as I
build a feed, preamp and HPA I will be taking skeds for 220.  Any help I
can get on these items would be appreciated.
