Hi Joe  de WE2Y John
  well I still don't have hi  power . my swr is 2.5/1  so I don't want 
to put high power into my ant yet.
 I now have pol rotation back . last night (sat ) night local time .I 
heard a few stations.KU4F,W7CI,UA3PTW,and EA8FF..Net Faraday seemed to 
be zero.+/-
     Libration seemed to be playing tricks on the sigs last night.Fading 
was extreme.All on 432.
     Still trying to build my 432 transmatch. so at least I won't 
destroy my 3cx800.I won't get to cleaning my ant connections 'til spring.
take care
                  John WE2Y

February was a good month. New ones worked on 70cm were 
N4GJV, WA4NJP, K2UYH and VK4AFL. Now at 23 initials with 
the single yagi. W7MEM reports hearing me. I heard K5WXN 
one day and Dan heard me the next, but no QSO yet. I am 
quite pleased with the results as I only expected to work a 
half dozen of the biggest stations when I put up this 
little yagi.

I plan to be active during the March perigee and welcome 
skeds. KS4YT is handling QSLs and sending a request to 
Bridget is the quickest way to get a card from me.

73,
Paul N1BUG

Hi to all:

Many thanks to all of you who sent your good wishes and/or cards in the
mail. I can assure you it was MOST appreciated.

I had my quad bypass on Feb 14 with some further cleanup on Feb 15. I was
discharged from the hospital on Feb 19. Naturally I was pretty "slow", to
say the least! I finally ventured down stairs to the radio room on Feb 22,
turned on the PCs and clicked the E Mail button. 180! That took me a day or
two to get through sorting.

The thing that is giving me the biggest problem at the moment is my left
leg. This is were they took veins for the bypass of course. Well, after a
visit to the Doctor today, apparently I am going to have to develop some
new level of patience I have never had before. I am simply going to have to
wait until this leg heals more before I get better mobility. This going to
be a slow process.

Overall, everything has  been a complete success and now only requires time
and patience before I should be better than ever!

Again, my appreciation for your kind thoughts. 

I am back, albeit at considerably reduced speed for the next short while.  
73,
Lionel,VE7BQH

Finally made a contact via the moon after moving the station and
realigning the rotators.  Signals were very loud and so mike  KL6M and I
worked each other.  I could hear his echos three characters at a time
and he could hear my characters as I was sending them with no breaks or
stopping.  Wow!!!!!!!

See ya got to run.
