Hi Jo --sked ok with wa1jof and will be there . depends on wx  . 
If you have room please put me on net notes. 23cms power is low --
only 200 watts to 4.2 m dish--am trying GS35 on 23 cms --hope it
gives some power. Also hope to improve 432 system antenna --still 
the old 8 times 8.6 lambda .

Hello Joe,
 I tried my sked with KL6M this evening but had some problems. First, 
I did not know the seqs ( 2 or 2.5 mins ) and who starts the sked. 
The other problem was I had computer noise right on 432.040. I tried 
calling on CQ for awhile on 432.020 and tuned around the band and heard 
nothing. All of this @ 530 UTC Jan 26th. 

I might be QRV after @ 0500 UTC on Jan 27th 144 or 432 MHz. I also could 
be QRV 1296 at this same time but can only run 30 watts into the 10 foot dish.

I tried to hear Mike ( KL6M ) inside the noise but heard nothing. I expected 
to at least heard something. If anyone with a decent station wants to try, 
I will be QRV after 0500 UTC Jan 27. I am new to 432 EME and made one succcessful 
QSO with DL9KR without a preamp and 350 watts.

I am also looking for anyone who may have a power supply for a pair of 4CX250B's. 
I have a HV P.S. but nothing for the grid and screen voltages.

Jeff K7XQ
144 MHz 4 X 3 W.L. 750 watts
432 MHz 2 X 9 W.L. 350 watts ( soon 700 watts..buying K6PF's dual 4CX250B Amp )
1296 MHz 30watts ( soon 300 watts ) 10 foot dish

Very, very sad results, so far this weekend.

LU7DZ   NIL (Probably my fault...outside his sked window)

With results like this, I wonder if I need a new hobby.

I did work some good old boys:

W7CI 449/449
N4GJV 549/569
K5WXN 549/559

Heard very loud:  EA8FF, K2UYH, W5AZU
Did not have time to QSO them due to skeds.

Tnx & 73

Mike, KL6M

Hi Joe!
Greetings to you and all on the net!
I'm sorry that HF isn't working yet.
I was on for a short time last night, and QSOed WA6PY and KL6M-both had
good sigs. I was amazed by the strength of the sigs from Pauls' 8 ft. dish!!
I intend to on a little longer tonight, if my azimuth rotator problems don't 
reappear, and I will be looking for KU4F. Does SK0CC still check in? If so, 
I'd like a sked for tonite-if not, I'd like a newsletter sked for next 
month. I do need 45 deg. el. to avoid the trees, not just blockage wise, but 
physically!! I heard them well, last winter, just before my last period of 
I hope that you can get that new dish back up soon, Joe!
Has anyone heard from N1BUG?? I haven't been able to raise him via e-mail.
                 Vy 73!  Ron n4gjv
