NET BEGINS
NEED 10GHZ STATION THAT WILL BE ACTIVE ON APR 28/29. PLEASE SEND REPONSE TO ME.

I have arranged a lot of skeds, but some of the sked partners may not receive 
NET NOTES. If you see stations on sked list please QSP to them. Also please 
check all skeds and send corrections/additions/deletions to me ASAP. Thanks
for all your co-operation. There is still time to add skeds, as Al (K2UYH)
is traveling this week and News Letter will be a bit late.

net starts

W2UHI:  all is well.. did have hi winds during the week.. have replaced/
        repaired cabling that rodents had chewed through.. looking for
        any 23cm activity off the moon.. wnats to try polarizer screws
        vs hybrid for circularity.. 

W5LUA:  lots of 6 meter F2 contacts and 2 meter AU.. did work W6HD on 3cm..
        a little more progress on 24ghz tropo.. has received about 15 CDs
        from the EME 2000 conference. Those interested in aquiring one 
        of these CDs, contact W5LUA. Al will be forthcoming with the cost.

VE6NA:  working a bit of 6 meter and 2 meter AU.. will be taking a 12 day
        cruise to Spain from Florida.. will be back first of May.. not
        available sked weekend.. 

K0YW:   have been very busy.. will be in Nashville for conference.. QRV on 23cm.
        W7CS, WA7CJO, W7GBI, W7BBM meeting in Az was good.. will be back on
        the air on 23rd.. 

W4RDI:  not much to report.. wx all ok.. QRV on 23cm..

VE4MA:  wx not that good.. for W6HD, can you hear your own echoes.. 

K5JL:   no contact with PY5ZBU.. we are still in need to talk with Don. Not the
        MOV on the amp. Cavity megs out fine.. still getting wierd indications
        from p/s.. Tube also megs out fine.. 

K9BCT/M: doing some tower work.. not QRV.. this week.. for VE1ALQ: pkg in mail.

WA4NJP: worked FO5 in Fiji on 6 meters.. did work the Faulklands..No more skeds
        for this month.. nice day in Ga.. QRV on all bands.. Will see all in
        Nashville..

W5ZN:   not much.. 

W7MEM:  just checking in.. on 9th, worked first ZL in 10 years.. will work 
        random on the 28th on 70cm.. 

VE6TA:  just listening .. 

K6IBY:  had cataract surgery.. should be back on the air soon.. has a new amp
        for 70cm..

W4OP:   concentrating on 23cm.. 13.5db sun noise so far.. not QRV 10ghz..

K5WXN:  will be on sked weekend looking for 70cm activity. During last contest
        weekend, polarity was pretty sharp. some folks seem to be receiving fine
        but possibly xmitting on the rcv pol position instead of where they
        were xmt when the station replied.. hard to handle pol change on a fast
        exchange.. Reccommend that each station always xmit on the pol that they
        were rcvd by the other station, regardless of where their rcv pol is. 

N6CJR/M: In Dallas.

Hi Allen and Joe !

News from OK1KIR:
In the first part of European Worldwide Contest 2001 OK1KIR worked:
432 MHz: PA in trouble, so only 150W from SS driver (old surplus Motorola PA module 
from base station of previous Austrian 450 MHz NMT mobile phone network) allowed 
on Apr 1st at 1131 HB9Q 569/549 and at 1140 OZ4MM 559/429.  HRD: DL4MEA, DL7APV, 
DL9NDD (CWNR)  and VK4AFL. 2304 MHz: on Mar 31th at 1316 OE9XXI 559/549, 
at 1324 OZ4MM 549/439,at 1815 OK1UWA O/O for init.# 41, at 1920 HB9SV 549/539, 
at 1928 W5LUA 449/449, at 1945 OH2AXH 549/539, at 2019 LX1DB 559/449. 
SM3AKW heard in March. 5760 MHz: Apr 1st at 1856 LX1DB 549/449 and at 2030 partial 
CT1DMK M/? (suprised with Luis very weak signal).  Nil in skeds with IK2RTI and W5ICW.
Moon noise was 1,2 dB and CS/G 3,8 dB (heavy water clouds). Circular feed used whole 
the time. In the 2nd part of EU EME Contest we will be on 1296 MHz on Sat, Mar 28th 
and on 10368 MHz during Sun, Mar 29th. We are eager for 1296 MHz skeds with F1PYR, 
F1OAT, VE6NA(NO), W9OUU, W7BBM and 9H1ES. On 10368 MHz we would like DL2LAC, DL0EF, 
I5PPE, IW4BTJ, IK5WDJ, S57UUU, OH2AXH ?, VE4MA, W7CNK ?, W6HD,VE7CLD, WA6PY and W4OP? 
We have either rotateable linear or circular polarization on 3 and 6 cm, but such a 
change takes at least half an hour.

Vy 73s from Tonda&Vlada  *******  not QRV 10ghz=W7CNK, VE7CLD?, W4OP, W6HD(no skeds)
                                VE4MA(maybe) Not QRV/no skeds pse 23cm=W9OUU, VE6NA.

Hi Joe and Dave,

I am off to France today for a week. I will be back on the 21st.  As
usual I am running late.  As a result the May NL will probably be
delayed a week.  If I can find an e-mail port and can finish up the NL
while I am traveling, I may be able to get out the e-mail version on
time.  (Dave, I will likewise try to pick up your netnotes while
traveling.)

73 and have a nice Eastor Holiday,

Hi Joe:

For the net notes: W6HD plans to be on 10368.100 from Moonrise Hill
(CM98) on Saturday April 28th beginning just after rise at 1712 UTC.
I'm running 20 watts out with a 3.1 meter dish so will be looking
for BIG guns.  I'll be transmitting horizontal polarization and can
vary receive pol instantly.  I can also change transmit pol if 
necessary.  I can only be on the air for two to three hours before
running out of battery power and generator gasoline!

No skeds but if anyone wants to email me with the fact that they are
going to be on the air at that time I'll be looking for them.

73,  Tay  W6HD    hthoward@stanford.edu

Dear Joseph,

thank you very much offering us to co-ordinate a few EME skeds on the
28th and 29th of April for 10 GHz.

Our Callsign is DL0EF and we are located in JO30IN (50 deg. 34 min 9.2
sec N/6 deg. 43 min 25.0 sec E). We have a 10 m solid dish and 20 W at
the feed. We are receiving moon noise with around 3.5 dB and can hear
our own echos with 6-7 dB in 2.5 KHz.

Our prefered working frequency will be 10368.030 MHz, synthesizer
controlled.

Due to logistic reasons, we can only start operation on the 28th of
April as from around 12h00 UTC, that is why I limited the attached draft
schedule to skeds in the evening of the 28th and 29th. The schedule is
on an Excel File, with the EME-Windows calculated for a number of known
stations in the US. If you wish, you can use it for your convenience and
ease.

We are basicall interested in any station as we have not been in the air
for two-way contacts before and believe, that we can work them all.

DL0EF is a clubstation from Germany`s first radio telescope built after
WW II and we have refurbished a 10 m dish during the last 3 years, which
was used for sun spot measurements on 17 and 36 GHz in the 1950s! We
have  precise pointing  and can track the moon accurately.

For mor information, look on our webpage at:

http://www.astropeiler2.de/as/frames.html

DL0EF is in the QRZ.Com Database. We will confirm all contacts directly
with a nice QSL and Photo.

We have a team of several operators and I will operate as well. My call
sign is PA3GLB and German Callsign DL5FAB. I took the task to
co-ordinate skeds using the Internet or the VHF/UHF Net. We will keep
the latest sked list up-dated on our Webpage.

I would appreciate, if for this sked list, you will use my E-Mail
address (Manfred.Lugert@Inter.NL.Net).

Again, thank you very much for your help. I am looking forward for some
return messages on skeds.

Regards and 73

Manfred Lugert
(PA3GLB/DL5FAB)
