Dear Joe
please inform the net, that we did not be QRV for our moonset on March 3./4.
due to problems with the feed for 432. We are working on it and hope to be
ready with a much improved RX for the EME contest end of the month.
We will advice when ready!
Many thanks!

Subj:    [Moon-Net] UHF:AZ Drive Problems ATTN: PA4FP !!!
Date:   3/3/01 6:55:21 PM Eastern Standard Time
From: (Melum)

I had another drive shaft failure which is now fixed, but it will take me
1/2 to 3/4 hour to install it, so I will miss my 2330 sked today.
Hopefully will be on as soon as possible.

Tnx & 73

Hi Joe!
Many thanks for the skeds! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to be QRV for the 
RW3PF skd. I had a good qso with PA4FP, but only a M/- partial with DL5LF. 
Heavy rain, here, degraded the performance of my array, and polarization 
alignment was poor.
I will be listening to the net tomorrow. I would be grateful if you could 
ask about an e-mail address for DL5LF. I would like to try again,
next weekend, with him. I'd like to sked him via e-mail, this time, due to 
the unfavorable common moon time, and my window restrictions.
                         Many thanks & vy 73!

Subj:    Cancel Sked

From: (Melum)


I am very sorry that I must cancel our sked, due to unrepairable failure of
my temporary azimuth drive last night.  I spent all day today trying to
repair it, without luck.  I have parts on order for the permanent
replacement, so I will be ready for Dubus on 31 March.

Tnx & 73

From: (Roger K. Hansen)

Last night I heard  WB0GGM but he didn't hear me, tonight just the
reverse, one of these times we work each other.  About 45 minutes prior
to a second schedule, I worked K4QIF 549/549 and just after the second
schedule  I worked K1FO 449/549.  Will be on tomorrow afternoon
conditions permitting.

My appologies to the skeds that I had to cancel.  I stayed up to work the
European moonrise on 3 March, but at 0300 local, my azimuth drive quit just
as the footprint was reaching western Europe.  Managed to work a couple
stations before it broke.

I am off the air until the Dubus contest.  My new azimuth pinion is due in
on 8 March, so I won't have it installed for about a week or so after that.
 Worked the following stations on 2-3 March, all random:

ON5OF 559/559 #67
DJ3FI 549/449 #68
KU4F 559/559 #69
KAØRYT 449/559 
JA6AHB 549/549
HB9Q 549/549
DL9NDD 569/569
VK4AFL 449/549

Still trying to get the hang of polarity rotation.  I look forward to
working many stations next month in the Dubus contest.

Tnx & 73
