Hello Joe
I answer your question on last net-notes last week.
Most of JA EMEers do not know about the net-notes and they are very rare to
check the latest sked list on K2UYH web pages.
Personal proposal via e-mail would be successful.
de Yoshiro JA4BLC

JS3SIM ( he hopes weekend skeds on 432.070 to
avoid local QRM. He would not QRV at 0730z on Feb 22 (= 1630 local time on
Friday, he needs to work).
JJ1NNJ( he can QRV on weekend. Pse contact to confirm
the skeds via e-mail.
JR9NWC( he has been very busy by business trip to
overseas. Pse contact to confirm the skeds via e-mail.
7M2PDT( will accept the sked list. Pse contact to
confirm the skeds via e-mail.
JA6AHB( can QRV on 432 and 1296 and wish to ake a sked
by personal mail. Pse contact him via e-mail.

With deep regret I have to announce that ON4UV passed away last week-end.
Marc was licensed for more than 50 years.
His passion for the radio led him towards moonbounce.
He made his first EME contacts in 1985 on 432 Mhz. In 1991 he switched
to the 23 cm band.
Not being a DX hunter, he always preferred to experiment, which lead him
in 1996 to start the assembly of a parabolic dish of 3 meters, suited
for 10GHz EME.
One year later, he announced he was ready for the first tests, but
health troubles caused delays, postponing the project.
Although the station was ready for 95%, he was not given the time to
perform his first tests.
Marc left us on February 17 at the age of 82 years.
As long as the moon will shine, we will remember him.

Subj:    UHF:23cm G4CCH - Bad WX 23 &24 Feb

CC: (Joe (E-mail))

I was hoping to be QRV in the 23cm ssb contest this weekend... this seems very 
unlikely due to very bad weather. We have had high to gale force winds over the 
last few days, and this is forecast to continue accompanied by snow.
This looks like the one occasion where the weather forecasters look like they 
got it right!

I hope that elsewhere in Europe you have better WX and that you are able to make 
plenty of activity in the contest. Hopefully, I can be QRV again next month.

Check my web site for my latest activity plans and reports

>JH7PAV   he does not join ja-eme mailing list
>JH1XUJ   his antenna is broken yet
>JA2KRW   he can not QRV now

I recieved infomations of the eme activety in Japan  from  Yoshi JA4BLC
 as follows.
Over 90 percents active moon bouncer in Japan join the
 "ja-eme mailing list".

Serch the JA5FNX web page in japan, that shows ja eme active hams 



I am very appreciative of this email.  I am going to bed instead of staying
up late tonight.  I had a rough week and welcome the opportunity.  I will
get up tomorrow and concentrate on some good QSOs.

I will continue to persue the JAs that are QRV at a later date.

Tnx & 73

Mike, KL6M
