Joe quick note to correct my weak signal on 20 mtrs.       
Will have trailer mounted 4 mtr on 23cm  in a short time.(waiting on ve1alq 
amp and feed)  xmit power maybe what; 200 watts out of two 2c39.
this is the dish I was using to work 13cm with Paul W4HHK , etc on 2304.
Later in year I will be back on 2304, have pumpkin about 300 to 350 watts on 
13cm.  Would also put back on 5760, have 70 watts if activity is there.  
These last two bands only later in year. Have 16ft Scientific Atlanta that I 
would like to put on here, but that will be a while.
By the way I have moved from Grove, Oklahoma EM26 to EM37, near Springfield, 
My plans call for me to pull antenna to Ark., Ky etc to help the guys who 
need them.  A big idea and I hope I can "pull" it off.   Having to drag 5 
gal. of water along is a bitch too!  I hate water cooling!  If you hear of 
something I can air cool let me know.
CU on the net.

Subj:    QRV 23cm for Dubus
Date:   4/7/02 12:16:17 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: (Melum)

Hi Joe,

Just got back from 10 great days in Kauai, Hawaii.  

Thanks to WL7BQM, Mike, in Sterling, Alaska, I plan to be QRV on 1296 in
time for Dubus on 20-21 April.  He is loaning me a VE4MA feed, tuned by
Darrel, and a 160 watt brick which we plan to mount at the feed.  Preamp is
a 0.4 dB DEMI.  I have to get the whole thing operational during a 3 day
weekend next week.

I still don't have my improvements finished to my position indicator.  I
will be trying to get it operational also, but I plan to operate anyway, if
I don't finish it.  I will just have to spend a lot more time tweaking the
dish without it.

Tnx & 73

Mike, KL6M
