Since I did not get any replies to my 13cm operation today
(Saturday) I was on 23 cm. Activity was quite poor, worked
7 and CWNR 3 stations. Then later there was W..BBM calling
me, but he disappeared after few calls. Pitty. Hope he will
be QRV on Sunday, I will certainly look for him. (I found in
NL that it must have been W7BBM).
Conditions were funny during the late afternoon, with signals
up and down. Hope that it will be better on Sunday and also
that there will be more W stations !
Next weekend I plan to be on 6cm if any interest. Please
contact me directly on Email.
GL to all, 73, Ivo

Dear Joe, thanks for the "Net Notes" and especialy for the latest
Sked List which included my sked with PA4FP, that finaly resulted a
quick (10 minutes) nice QSO, in fact my #150 on 432 MHz EME, a fine
"gift" for my 60th birthday !. Have heard for the first time the
signals from UA3PTW on .010 calling CQ, CWNR, would like to have a
sked with him. Tried also with DJ3FI a sked on .030 this was NC.
Do fight the heavy QRM from the "armada" of PC-s placed in the
nearby offices ( 8 meters from my antennas ! ). Here is a maximum
of noise around 432.070, so skeds on 040 or even lower are welcome !.
73 & DX, Szigy.

Its a beautiful calm evening and total degradation is VERY low, and 1/2
hour before sked time we got 5 minutes of pounding hail. 300 Watts
reflected! Busted! Murphey strikes again!
I am off the air. I may try to restore before moonrise. I have no more
skeds so no big deal. Here are the gruesome details and blow by blow (just
for the heck of it):
RA3LE Nil ???
OE3JPC Copied him "O" no completion
IN3AGI Copied him "O" no completion
G3LQR O/O (polarity = 72 CCW - perfect, no Faraday) Initial# 85
SM3BYA Nil ???
DL5LF 3 separate skeds copied him each time, no completion (single yagi)
CT1DMK Cancelled (advance email very much appreciated)
W7MEM Cancelled (advance email very much appreciated)
RW3PF Very sorry, the hail storm cancelled this one.
UA6LGH Nil ???
UT3LL O/O Initial# 86
7M2PDT Nil ???
JA8IAD 3 tries. Last one he sent Os I sent ROs but never got R. No QSO.
JHØWJF O/O (perfect case of about 30 degrees of Faraday) Initial# 87
WB5APD Cancelled (advance email very much appreciated)
JH1XUJ Nil ???
Percentages stink but the bottom line is, I had a GREAT time!!!
The icing on the cake: some great QSOs with some of the veterans:
HB9Q 549/549 What a great beacon!
VK4AFL 559/559 Trevor was having fun with SSB. I taped him and HB9Q.
DL9KR 569/569 Unbelieveable
SM2CEW 559/559 Great signal (consistantly)
DL9NDD 569/569 Another unbelieveable
KU4F 569/569 Les seemed to be having fun too - strong!
JA5OVU 549/559 Tom has been QRT w/ 1.6:1 (running 300w today) Visiting
Alaska next month
WA4NJP 559/559 Great signal, perfect case of 45 degrees of Faraday
Tnx & 73

Subj: net notes sunday

From: email@example.com (Dominique Fassler)
had a good time in Dayton. Met with many EMEers and had fun at the small
signal gathering. Hope not to have provoked too much about 110V
Wkd many stn yesterday, F6ETI escaped.. His signal moved up and down by
about 4kHz, so finding and tracking him is kind of challenge!
HB9MPU whom I wkd some weeks ago had a hear attack but is recovering. EME
was not triggering this, however, he needs a couple of months to get back to
Will be qrv today for anyone on 1296.

I'm back on 432, however do not have a tower and antenna up for the 20
meter net. I am a new initial contact, my new grid is EL99af.
WA4NJP and VK4AFL asked me to go to ssb yesterday. They both were 55 on
receive, I can't transmit on ssb at the present.
Qsl cards have been ordered, and I will send out direct when they arrive.
Thanks Joe, I enjoy the net notes, and look forward to talking to you on
the net soon.
