Now for an editorial:

I am expressing only MY opinion and MY observations regarding information
posted on various "reflectors". I do at times monitor and read info on some
of these reflectors, and would like to pass my thoughts on to some of you
that post on these "reflectors" but do not always get replys or action. This
also includes the "EME logger". Please beware that many 432 & above stations 
do NOT use these methods for their own reasons. If you get no response or
action, please try checking into the EME nets on Saturday and Sunday, both
70cm & up and the 2 Meter net on 20 meters 14.345 mhz 1400z soon to be 
1500z. I do not always take postings from these various "relectors" and put
them in Net Notes as it can become confusing, so if you would like info
distributed in Net Notes, please cc me ( ) so I know they
should be posted. There are a lot of new stations coming active on all EME
bands and there is a wealth of knowledge to be gleaned from ALL sources.
But your needs are not always addressed through just one method. 

I am open to criticsm (constructive and destructive) but am only trying to
help in getting your needs addressed. There are still many very active 
stations that are NOT "connected" and choose not to do so. Please keep this
in mind when announcing your activities whatever and wherever they may be.

If someone feels the need to cut and paste this editorial to a "reflector", 
I have no objections. I am only trying to describe how I see some comments
go unanswered..

Subj:    my first 24GHz rx test

Hello Joe,

First of all thanks to Barry and Al for early notification of their October
tests. Month ago I had only dish lying in garage and DB6NT preamplifier. Now
this dish is on the roof of 18th floor. October 6 first test on 3cm. Sun
noise 15.5 dB and moon noise 1.6 dB. October 7 - first test on 24 GHz. Sun
noise 13 dB. October 8 - moon noise 2.1 dB (elevation 43 grad). October 9 -
Trying to find Al and Barry 100 kHz away from right frequency. At 09:13
noticed and correct my mistake. At 09.14 copied first signal via moon on 24
GHz. Elevation 14 deg and moon noise only 0.8 dB.
October 10 - bad weather with rain and fog. Low moon noise even at 45 deg
elevation. Anyway I copied both signals with readable level. Some pause in
rain and moon noise was abt 1.2 dB.

Ant - 2.4m offset dish with rectangular horn as a feed.
Converter and LO by RA3ACE
Preamp DB6NT 1.6dB
