        stations had some signals to listen to. W7BBM 0153z, K0YW 0206z, &
        K5JL 0217z.. 

K5JL:   was on around 0100z .. worked W7BBM, K0YW, & W2UHI.. did not hear N2UO.

W5WOX:  hopes to get some stuff done this week on system . not listening off the
        moon yet.. 

N4PU:   was trying to track the moon last night and had some problems .. heard
        one station quite strong using manual keying .. also heard some weaker
        signals.. but attributes some of the problems to tracking issues.. 
        The signal was was plenty loud but could not figure who it was..

Hi Joe,
 I made some progress last week on 1296 EME. I setup skeds with G4CCH
and OE9ERC. I think I may have as little as 30 watts at the feed since I
was only seeing about 60 watts in the shack since I run 70 feet of 1/2
inch hardline before it reaches the feedhorn. They both heard me with
"M" copy and full calls. The biggest problem I have is frequency drift
on the transverter and not knowing where I am frequency wise. I think
both stations had to hunt around to find me. 
        The strange thing is I couldn't hardly copy them !! They both
run very large stations so if anything, I should have at least copied
them. I only got bits and pieces of letters. I will be getting a
IC-1271A in the next few weeks. This will cure the frequency drift and
frequency accuracy issue. The fact the signals were down may have
something to do with the fact I was running a single probe in the feed (
linear polarization ) and that I need to setup it back up for circular
that should at least give me the 3 dB extra I need to hear better.
        I just received a 5 foot equipment rack today, so I am tearing
things down and rebuilding the amplifiers into the rack. I may not be
QRV this weekend at least on 1296 but maybe on 144 or 432 Sunday.

Subj:    [Moon-Net] My 1st EME QSO on 13cm de PA3DZL

Hello friends,

I'm very happy to tell that I made my first 13cm EME QSO this evening with
Erich, OE9ERC. His outstanding station made it possible because I have
only a QRP rig for this band (2.50m dish, 30W and 0.6dB NF at the feed).

I heard Erich already from the beginning doing some echo-testing.
Heard him all the time 449 to 549 signals. I received "O" + 339 report and
sent "r O". 

I'm looking for more QSO's in the near future.
