Subj:    F1ANH-Info
Date:   1/14/02 2:08:28 AM Eastern Standard Time

Hi Joe,

I went through the 2001-newsletters and finally found the 
looked-for address of F1ANH in the March 2001 newsletter:

Best regards and Happy New Year

Subj:    EME info and 70 cm and above EME net
Date:   1/14/02 5:26:20 AM Eastern Standard Time
From: (Alphen, dhr. J.C.J. van)
To: ('')

Hello Joe,

First of all, as newcomer on EME I want to react on your concern about
people not attending the 70 cm and above EME net. I know the existence of
the EME net but         I cannot be QRV because my license does not allow me
to be QRV on HF. I do listen in to the EME net but most of the times I get
strong QRM from Italian stations at the same QRG. Further most of the time I
can only copy you when you have the beam to Europe.  
Because of my license I cannot attend the net and for this my most important
way of getting info and skeds is via the Internet. I always look at your
netnotes published on the web but the last few of 2002 I did not find yet. 
My station info is also on my webpages at with
info on EME but also about microwave activity and other stuff.

At this moment my activity on EME is a bit low, I am trying to learn CW
which gives me a hard job. Since september I made 6 QSO's but have got many
stations calling me. Due to a poor RX side and my lack of CW experience I
failed many QSO's which could be possible. I hope the next few month's to
work much more new initials.
On my station side I have now a much better pre-amp which improved my RX
performance. Now I have 1.7 dB moonnoise and about 15 dB solar noise (I
started with 0.9 dB moonnoise) . On my webpages I have also published noise
data from other 10 GHz EME stations, which can be usefull as reference data.
My TX side is working fine with about 200 Watt RF feeding a 6 meter
waveguide and 150 Watt at the feed. I still have to steer the dish by hand
which makes me a very busy operator. I hope to get automated tracking
operational. Still not sure which way to go for this. 
I want to try to be QRV during the weekends close to perigee but as long as
my station is not ready I am very dependent on wheather conditions. I have
to put the TWT with HV supply outside and don't want to risk losing the TWT,
so I cannot be QRV when it is raining.
For sked requests please send a mail to:
