Hello Joe and all.  My 100 watt Varian VTM-6191 bit the dust for unknown 
reasons so I am operating with my 30 watt 6196 TWT again.  I can hear my 
own echoes (weakly) so the system is working reasonably well.  I'm always 
looking for new 3 cm stations to work but it will take patience on both 
ends, hi.   I plan to be on next July 21.

73,

Greg, AA5C

Gentlemen:

I think we have to understand the possible problems that Feng and the group
have, after seeing some of the photos
I think he has a very complex rising moon window, I have not asked about a
setting moon.  There is the possibility of some noise
as he said that he had "sun noise  interference" on one of the earlier test.
I am compiling all the info he has sent me and will have
so that all can see. Right now he is transmitting better than he can here,
and with a 100 watts , still not much of an EME station.
I think that when he gets the ability to here better ,he(they)) will operate
more....

Subject: thank for your report

hello OM ray
thank for your report of the test, (27,28 May) although I failed in the QSO.
I didn't make any change of my system in 27 May 2001, the result was not good,
I thought I should have a preamp( I sent it back to be repaired now ),but I 
think it will take some time to be repair.when I get the preamp I will inform 
you,I think it's not easy to make QSO without preamp.
A japanese EMEer told me that if  I have a good attenna system ,it will be 
easy making it,I happen very busy thesedays ,then I plan to get a way on it.
Big building maybe influenced the EME mode,I saw a big building in the same 
direction of moon( so I couldn't see the moon directly in 25,26 May )
Up to now I didn't make any SKED with others  yet , but if  I have my preamp 
on my system, I will try to make SKED with others ,otherwise I think it's wast 
of time for me and others. so if possible please inform  DL9NDD
that I am sorry of my bad system I didn't hear him ,and also I don't know he 
is calling me .

thank for your report and help.

73 good luck to you.

Hi Joe,

I have attached a sked81 file for next sw.

I have not repaired my system yet, but hope to do so this weekend.  I
visited a 30 meter dish today.  Amazing.  This thing has an elevator that
goes up 6 stories into a room in the center of the dish.  I may put some
pictures on the web later.  It is an old decommissioned COMSAT earth
station that AT&T has kept operational as a backup.  I think the only hope
of operating EME from there would be on 1296.  It is Cassegrain feed and
probably would not work on 432.

Tnx & 73
