Subj: Last SW weekend
Date: 7/16/01 4:05:08 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From: email@example.com (Sergio Bergonti)
Hi Joe and all,
very quiet weekend last one. Not too many stations or qso but I have to be
honest I was too tired for the EU night passes and only worked few hours in
both mornings. Gladly catched K9BCT as new one. Also heard DL1YMK but at
the time he was answering to my call I could not understand his callsign.
Next time. Just for our internal chronicle I got hit by the tail of a mini
tornado that strangely happened here one week ago and got some damage to
the dish. Aside the wind and rain that were crazy we got hit by hail
greater than two inches in diameter.
The dish mesh is now badly bumped and in some three points the mesh has
´ripped´ like a cloth. Unbelievable, from under the roof it sounded like a
bombardment! Not only, at times I clearly heard the roof to ´resonate´
shook by the wind! In those moments I really thought that the antennas and
especially the EME dish would have flown away...
The full W2IMU feeder made of copper (0.55mm) has physically resisted more
then expected but it is also bumped badly in some three of four points. If
physically it looks not so bad the return loss on the tx side got
definitely worse. Possibly the whole system´s performance has degraded
(sorry DL1YMK!). I am of course planning to restore the dish ´as it was´
but it may take a while, in the meantime I will try not to loose SWs.
There were 92 people injured and two of them are on the border line at the
hospital. Damages to homes and various hardware for 1 billion dollars, I
guess I should´t complain too much about my antennas... (all this 5Km from
Best to all IK2MMB, Sergio
Subj: W7HAH H frame
Date: 7/15/01 11:17:22 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Mark e McMillan)
I got the H frame today and it was not a M2 ,but the 2 six way dividers
were. I got a Yaesu elevation rotor and h frame, phasing lines, sequencer
with preamp and relays. So all I need is 8 more M2 9wl's Please put a
want out for me for 8 m2 432/9wl's. I think Shep had 12 24 element FO's
or KLM's I think this frame will accomodate 12 m2. So I hope to have 12 M2
9wl'd\s 800 watts going as soon as can get ant's

Can you list this stuff in the next net for me? I have a
matching pair of amplifiers for sale, both use the gs23b and
were built by n4pz. Both amps have full metering, blowers,
filament and grid supplies. I will also include a spare
tube, the start of a power supply which has a transformer
from an mri machine that fed a single 3cx800 driving a pair
of 3cx1500's, a zener string mounted on a heatsink, 4 k2aw
rectifier blocks mounted on a heatsink and an aluminum rack
chassis. i will also include 2 transformers for the screen
supply. Asking $3000 for the package and will drive within a
reasonable distance to deliver or will crate and ship for
I also am selling my transverters unlimited 1296 amp, it is
capable of 325 watts out with 30 watts of drive (18 watts
drive has been giving me 225 to 250 watts out) with water
cooling. It is mounted in a 42 inch high rack cabinet with a
1500 volt 2 amp power supply which was built with a new
toroidal transformer, k2aw rectifier blocks, and 2 oil
filled caps. Asking $500 plus shipping (truck freight) or
will meet if the distance isn't to far.
