Good morning Joe.....Been up all night Baby sitting the Dish as we 
had snow fluries most of the night....With the outside temp. at 33 
deg. and around 10 kts of wind.....We lucked out and only got some 
dusting but was prepared to bring the dish down to the horizon if 
it snowed any more.  The Deicer was on all night and kept the dish 
free of any ice.  

Darrell has been helping us get the control box working.....looks 
like we have some bad chips on the El. Board, which have been ordered.  
Randy, W7HR, has been doing all the testing on the control box, and we 
are using his program to track the Sun and Moon.  So we are progressing 
slowly with the System.  Looking forward to getting this stuff all 
working so we can operate off the moon on 1296.  Thank you for the 
reports.  You are earning your Stripes keeping us together.  
Keep up the good work.

Hi Joe,

The winter has got me dowm, not being able to get on at all.  Can listen
to KL6M pound away though, even though it is direct and not off that
ball of cheese.  Am moving my shack into the garage at the present
time.  Can't beleve all the junk you find on the operating desk until it
is cleaned.  Just emailed you, as you said that you were going to cut me
a CD about your dish.  Haven't seen it yet so you probably havent cut it

WX here is cold it started out this morning (jan 26) at -25 below and
has warmed up to -12; a virtual heat wave.  

Won't be on tomorrow so sending this now.

Six opened up on Monday, King's holiday, into the east coast area.  Very
strong too.  Where were you?

Hi Joe,

I tried to work RA3LE  on 432.040 at 23:30 last night, January 26. I did
hear some CW however did not copy calls. I did have a little local QRN
or QRM at the time of the QSL. Maybe you can set me up again with RA3LE.

I was successful in completing with K9SLQ on December 31. K9SLQ has an
outstanding signal, easy copy.

Everything seems to be working FB here so please feel free in setting me
up with any 70 cm stations that wants to work me for next operation
weekend. I am looking to work any 70 cm stations in California, I don't
have California.

I am planning to send some QSL's out in the near future, sorry I got a
little behind.

Thanks Joe for your help, hope to talk to you again on HF soon,
Saturdays and Sunday mornings have been very busy last couple of weeks.

Thanks and 73,
Cowles K4EME
