for skeds. Due to logistic constraints, we will be able to accomodate skeds as
from around 11h00 UTC on Saturday the 20th to around 14h00 UTC on the 21st.

For working conditions please look at:

Thanks for distribution and support.

With new preamp on 1296mc I got moon noise of 0.7dB.
For those interested in 144mc EME, 10k is available here:
I got some brand new (packed and sealed)  TH373 for little money and they
