Hi Joe,
Checked out your pictures on the web and it looks like your dish is 
cooming along great.  I suspect it won't be long before you have
it up and running (or perhaps it allready is?).
We will be doing our annual multiop for the September VHF QSO
party and I would appreciate it if you had an opportunity during the
net to see if any of the big guns would be interested in a sked with 
us.  Unfortunately we will again be using my call so there may not 
be much interest (not an initial for most).  We will have about 1KW
at the feed of (2) M2 13wl yagis.  Our horizon is completely clear
at moonset (hilltop).  Moonrise Saturday night  (local) is during 
432 activity hour so we will limit EME activity to moonset Sunday.
We will be operating from FN32mc, only about 8 miles from my 

Moonset 9/9

    1600     286 az    8 el
    1640     293 az    1 el

Anyone interested can contact me directly via e-mail at
or phone at (413) 569-0314

Thanks very much Joe,

Frank   NC1I

Hi Joe,
  Here is my K7XQ Update for this weekend.

This weekend, designing and installing a water cooling system for 
the 1296 Amp. Still do not have my DEM 1296 Transverter back yet 
but should hopefully be back by this time next week. By then should 
be QRV 1296 EME. 

       Got 432 AM-6155 Amp working but becomes very unstable with 
power levels above 200 watts but looks like capable to 300 watts. 
I need to find a way to stabilized the AM-6155 to become stable at 
300 watts ( power and plate current drift upward during unstabilty..
any ideas anyone ??? ). Otherwise QRV 432 EME with 200 - 300 Watts.

       2 meter EME working very well with power levels on AM-6154 
close to 350 watts but grid current is limiting my ability to got 
to 400 - 450 watts. Antenna system working well. Just acquired a 
single 3CX800A7 Amplifier for 2 Meters and need to replace HV P.S. 
Filter bank to get on air. Should be QRV 2 Meters EME with 800 watts 
by about this time next week otherwise QRV with @ 350 watts now.
