Hi Joe !

I worked the first time with 2x8wl, but conDX seems to be very bad 
in my location (JO54AF). We had rain most of the time. I worked 
only 2 stations:
VE1ALQ and K2UYH with weak "O" report. Heard 2-3 other, but 
did not decode. Did also not hear DL9NDD, he is normaly very 
strong (also with single yagi).
I will be on for the ARRL contest.

Sympathy with all the people in the states, touched by the

Hello Joe,
Nice to see you back on eme.
Hope to work you on 23CM eme from EA8/LA8LF in Nov. part of contest.

Please change my e-mail adress to:    @@@@@@@@@@@
I received 41 e-mails over the week-end, 2 from you and 39 spams!!

W5WOX should have a look at my web page for ideas to drive his 12 feet
dish. I use an 18 inch actuator to get linear AZ drive. Simple and cheap and
vy accurate!

Hi Joe,

After the net last Sunday I was able to work KU4F on 70 cm.
I still don't feel my receive end is quite up to par. I am looking for a
inexpensive operational Noise Figure Setup to check out my 70cm.
preamps. I am hoping that someone has picked up an extra one at an
Auction and has one to sell. Something like a HP8970 would be nice.

Thank you & 73,
Cowles, K4EME
