Hi Joe,

Some of the EMEers may be interested in these as well.

73, Al - K2UYH
Dr. Allen Katz, President
Linearizer Technology, Inc.

        Forwarded FYI.  These dishes are located in Myrtle Beach SC USA.  
6 and 8 foot dishes are certainly usable for radio astronomy and SETI!  
Feel free to contact Ms. Smith if interested.

>Santee Cooper is a public utility. We have replaced most of our microwave
radio system; therefore, we have several used 6' and 8' solid and mesh
parabolic dishes. Do you know of anyone that would be interested in these?
I hate to landfill them.

 Report :  M, O, RST.

 Band   144 MHz  ;
 A) antenna max length 10 meters
 B) ant. between 10,01 to 20 meters length or dish up to 7 meters diameter

 D) ant. over 50,01 meters length or dish over 4,51 meters diameter

 As for other frequencies (50,1296 MHz and up), categories are one for each 

 To define length of antenna :
 length on meters, between last reflector to far director.

 EX. 1 antenna length 10 meters is A category, also with a plant from 4 to 
 2,50 meters length or 2 by five meters A category as well ( referred to 144 
 MHz). Also same for 432 MHz.
 For the stations that use cross antenna, length present on each antenna 
 will be added up.  EX. :  10 meters cross-yagi counted 20 meters;
 12 meters horizontal + 8 meters vertical on same boom, counted 20 meters.

 OM and SWL  can partecipate. In the SWL section, also OM are accepted, 
 but just as SWL and they can't make EME transmissions during the contest.

 Score  :   10 points a bilateral contact

            31 points a bilateral contact with an Italian stations

            10 points a bilateral contact between Italian stations

 Remarks on the 144 and 432 MHz bands categories:
 If the score of the first station classified in each category does not 
 exceed the first of the preceding category, the category itself is 
 cancelled and stations will be listed in the lower section.
 EX. : The first in E category scores 1000 points, the first in F category
 scores 990 points, then F category is declassed into E category  and  its 
 partecipants compete in E cat. too. In the same way, if the first in  C cat.  
 scores 300 p.ts , first in D cat. scores 290 p.ts, first in E cat. 280 p.ts 
 and first in F cat. scores 310 p.ts, we will have a single classification  
 for  F  category and another for C,D,E all together.
 Winners : are those who get the maximum score in each category.
 Every single station can partecipate in more than one band.
 PRIZES : Only the first in each category gets a prize ; all  the  others
