I am considering putting a prop pitch motor into service &
was wondering if there are usually any problems with hash
on 432 or 1296. The brushes & commutator are in good
condition & the unit will be mounted at the base of the tower
about 7 meters from the antenna.
Compliments of the season to all, Regards, Trevor.

Here's the report for this weekend so far... After some problems caused by 
the winter weather, heard no JA activity and EU activity was very low. 
Conditions were very good on 29 Dec with some nice ssb QSO's.

28 Dec
Had heavy and gusting winds overnight, dish was parked pointing up but with 
counterweight arms strapped to tower.
Fortunately everything survived... others were not so lucky!!

1925 OZ6OL 549/559, 2035 HB9BBD 599/589 and 59/58 on ssb, 2200 Sked with 
GM0ONN 1.8m dish & 230W  - M/Nil, 2254 N2IQ 569/569, 2325 W2UHI 559/559, 
2335 K5JL 599/589.

29 Dec
Had about 3 in of snow overnight, spent some time removing it from the 
dish... up the tower shaking things about and   with a brush. Eventually 
all was cleared. On switching on my tracking PC (Old 486), found cmos 
checksum error, wasted some time trying to remember how to get into the 
bios... eventually sorted OK.

1935 On testing for echoes... heard nil!!! Went outside and could see dish 
was pointing low. Increased elevation till heard echoes and peaked, then 
reset calibration. All that rocking to remove the snow must have messed up 
the count from the el sensor.

1956 HB9BCD 549/559, 2012 GW3XYW 55/55 on ssb, 2130 Sked with GM0ONN again 
M/Nil... Iain had pre amp failure, 2210 F6ETI 549/549, 2218 IK2MMB 559/569, 
2350 K2UYH 55/56 on ssb.

30 Dec
0013 SM2CEW 569/56 cw/ssb, 0028 ZS6AXT 559/589, 0039 K5JL 599/589 & 58/57 
on ssb, 0128 W2UHI 569/579, 0138 K9BCT 559/569, 0158 W7BBM 549/579 and 
again 0210 W7BBM 52/55 on ssb with 55 Watts!

Will be on again tonight from 2030 till 0100 or activity runs out. Hoping 
to try again with GM0ONN tonight.
If anyone needs a sked... please E Mail me or request via K1RQG, I always 
read the net notes. Unfortunately I have no antenna for 20m so can't 
contribute there.

Happy New Year to everyone
Looking forward to more fun in 2002
