Here is my weekend report:
1296 MHz is still down, Xvrtr STILL in repair at DEM !!!
432 MHz : Heard DL9KR very well but did not complete. I lost my
preamp and have to get it repaired. The amazing thing is that I
copied DL9KR without a preamp and used the internal preamp in
the FT-847 using a pair of 9W.L.'s for antenna. DL9KR was the
first 432 EME Signal ever received at my QTH and he apparently
copied me as "439" with my AM-6155 @ 250 - 300 watts ) . Never
heard DL9NDD, and did not even see him on FFTDSP. I am not sure
if he was there at all. I never heard KL6M, so I am assuming he
never got on. I should have a temp preamp installed in the shack
for the next weekends on 432.
2 Meters: worked N5BLZ, heard I2FAK ( He never heard me, I always
have trouble with I2FAK hearing me for some reason. ) . Single
3CX800A7 works well for first time use here. This was the first
weekend I have ever copied a EME Echo from my QTH on 2 meters or
any other band for that matter ( upgraded from 300 watts to 750
I will be QRV next weekend on 2 meters and 432 MHz. Not sure when
I will ever get my 1296 Xvrter back from DEM !!!

Well it looks like my eme days are not going to happen this year.
Unless I can get my elevation rotator fixed soon, weather is going to
get cold and I will be off the air until the spring of next year. This
summer has been so busy with trying to get things done for the house
that hamming has taken a back seat. Will try and keep in tough but
darn, I was ready to get on and the elevation rotor would not budge.
Climbed the tower and had a friend push the elevation rotor box and just
a slight hum was heard. Oh well. Will keep you advised, but not
looking to good right now.

Hi Joe, thanks for the mailed NET-info's, always read them with
interest. Activity seems to be low on 432 MHz, sunday was calling
and listening from 04.15 to 05.30 but nothing heard.
Pleased to read that you are back to EME trafic and congrats for
the nice 23cm QSO's, do hope to meet you on random on 70cm next time.
Last SW got a sked with DL7APV unfortunately it was out of my window,
do need the Moon at least 40 degrees elevation in KN05ps.
Still miss OC to complete my 432MHz WAC, glad that VK3UM is back,
wonder whats his new locator and how low can he go with the elevation
towards EU window?. Lost 9M8BV, but neither 9M2BV's card ever arrived!.
Will be on in the italian contest lets hope the Sun noise will not
disturbing to much via my side lobes which are also capturing the
PC birdies and noises from the neighbourghood (inexistent in the90s!)
Skeds always welcome, am not using Internet "on line", only AX25/TCP
IP gateways. Use the E-mail adress from the header or the "spare"
firstname.lastname@example.org I do search daily for mail on both of them.
Best 73 & DX, Szigy.
Subj: 1296 gear

I talked to Jay K5JL this morning and he suggested that I list this
equipment that is for sale with you and the EME news letter.
This is the situation W0EUQ, George, was just getting into vhf/uhf
seriously before he came down with CA. It was in remission for about
two months and he died on Good Friday. A week before he died he brought
over a lot of equipment and I know he wanted me to sell it for his xyl
but at the time he did not say that.
Here is a partial list that maybe of interest to the eme and eme'ers to be:
LT 230S 28 Mhz in 30 watts output 1296
23LNA-2n DEM 1296 preamp
CX-520 D relays
TRS sequencer by DEM
K9EK amp kit (single tube)
He had started to gather parts for a power supply and has a hv xfmr for
the K9EK amp as well as the plumbing hoses and radiator.
Since his passing another ham and I have done an inventory . If anyone is
interested and would send an SASE to either W0PHD or KE0A we will send a 4
page list of all his gear or via email firstname.lastname@example.org or klugrodney@uswest.
Any reasonable bid on the above 1296 gear will be considered - the total
package was worth $2113 and was never used.
