Hello Joe

It is always with great pleasure to read your netnotes! Thanks for tis fine
Unfortunately I will not be here on the next skedweekend, just maybe on
I will be in Toulouse France with some clients.
My activities on the moon as well as the technical updates of my have been minimal during the last few months. I met
some eme friends in Dayton the other day, which was most enjoyable.
The hut-project is finished now and we enjoy being there on the weekends. It
is a paradise to relax, surrounded of a scenery of exciting mountains and
The hut is located in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Its ideal for partiing as
well, to be honest..!

I did lots of preamp work which will be published later in summer. We all
will go to Prague and are looking forward to this event with joy.

Hi Joe,

I got 6.1 meter dish disassembled and moved home as of Wednesday, May
I am not sure the manufacture of this dish, if any one can tell from my
photo please let me know, may be Andrews.
I think the F/D is 0.375 and it is a 24 section 6.1 Meter solid aluminum
dish. I may want to add a collar around the outside of the dish so it
can be used on 432.

I am the one standing next to the removed section. Richard Wilkins,
(KR4V) and Ray Colvin, (KE4HVR) are my helpers. That is a 12 foot step
ladder in the photo.
Also John Nelson, (N3JN) gave me a hand on Saturday, May 25.

I heard from M2 this week, they have fixed my lightning damaged rotor
and it is on the way back. Hopefully with this repaired I can limp back
to 432 MHz EME very soon with my yagi array. I will have to track
manually until I get the computer up and running again.
I hope to be back on the moon on 432 soon.
