Hi Joe 
The results for the weekend were ½ poor. 
One QSO  (sked 27th) with G3LTF, but with god sigs. Heard some PA/DL 
fragmentary on Saturday. Still some trouble with azimuth indicator but, 
as it was visual moon, I could find out correction factor. Open for 
skeds all days (not nights).

Hi Joe !

I want to inform the community that my antennas did not survive the 
heavy storm in DL at the last weekend (26/27th Jan). I am thinking 
what to do next, but that will not be before summertime. Thanks to 
all so far, it was always big fun.

Hi Joe,
A friend of mine is showing some interest in EME.
His name is Victor Alger, KE4LKQ.
I tried to talked him into 70 cm EME but I think his interest lies in
the 23 cm band.
He has a Yaesu 736R with the 1296 MHz module installed. I think he has
either an 10 or 12 foot C-band satellite dish he wants to try to use. He
is looking for information on feed horns, preamps and power amps for
I told him that most of the experts usually checked in from time to time
on the net and this might be a great source of knowledge and hard to
find hardware for EME.
He asked me to get you to add him to your moon net email list.
His email address is:     @@@@@@@@
Thanks & 73,
Cowles, K4EME

Subj:    N7AM update.....
Date:   2/2/02 11:41:37 AM Eastern Standard Time

Good morning Joe....Was able to receive half of your check ins this AM.  You and 
Frank, W2UHI, were the strongest on my dipole in the Shop.  When the Wx gets better 
will be installing the 4 el. Quad for Twenty.  

Here, we are working on the drive shaft for AZ.  Am changing the drive shaft which 
was an old shaft from the HF days.  Randy, W7HR, is working on Darrells control box, 
which requires some new chips, to get the El readout working.  

In the shop, Have been testing the new waveguide from VE1ALQ, and it seems to have 
better sensitivity than the present one.

WE managed to escape any heavy snow here.  We had a slight dusting and that was it.  
The Dish is weathering all the wind gusts that we have had,  up to 32 kts.  
So we are making gradual progress on the EME system.

Thank you for the reports.  We appreciate your endeavours.  73  Jack N7AM
