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.

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.
