Dear Joe
We are working on our feedsystems for 432 and 1296. If everything goes well
we will be QRV during the weekend of September 8./9. We will advice about
the activity times on very short notice (moon-net or direct e-mail).
We still need south America on 432 and 1296 and Africa on 432. Can you
please help with skeds? We do not have any commitment yet, so any time is
If anybody wants to get direct info about our activities he shall send us an
e-mail. We send out our activity announcements usually a few days before the
Hope to work many new stations!

Subj:    432 & up and ARRL Contest
Date:   8/20/01 4:46:17 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From: (Philippe PIERRAT)
To: (, (Moon-Net), (K1RQG)


Many stations are qrv multi band up 432 Mhz and is impossible to work
simultaneous on all ! It is necessery to define days and times windows
for up 1296 Mhz. If nothing, upper bands will be forsake. Not many
people upper, and to change feed for nothing.... rather to work on 23
cm. A contest is the moment for a activity upper 23 cm.
Suggestions ?
