Dear friends
On July 13th we will celebrate Dan's 23 years of Radio Amateur. There will
be many good friends visiting. So we will be calling CQ on 144.040, 432.020
and 1296.016 once in a while (highest probability between 07.15 and 18.00z).
We are QRV on JT44 during those times on request. 
Hope to work then!

Don't forget to check-out the only online "EME Initial Top List! at"

Subj:    [Moon-Net] 13CM skeds wanted
Date:   7/10/02 11:56:05 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From: (Stig Vestergaard)

Hi 13CM stations.

As I have planned a sked with PA3DZL on saturday the 13th July at 1300UTC; I am 
looking for more sked to gain the activity on saturday at 13CM.   I need too to 
make some signals for a newcoming OZ-station at 13cm too.

Any who would like a sked, please respond.

On the 14th I plans to be at 432 and 1296 EME.

73 de OZ4MM, Stig

(OZ4MM runs 10m dish, W2IMU circular feedhorn and 120W  at 13cm)

Sender: (Peter K. Blair)
To: (K1RQG)

 Dear  Joe. At present not QRV as the 6m dish is completely dismantled. Hub
is nearly rebuilt  with much stronger material and ribs all rechecked in
the original jig. when reassembled, with better accuacy than original, it
will be covered with 6mm mesh to the 4.5 m diam to enable operation to at
least 9cm, hopefully 6cm. should be back on by the beginning of August. 73,
Peter G3LTF.

From: (Al Katz)
To: (K1RQG)

Hi Joe,

I just want to let you know I completed a JT44 QSO with OH3MCK on 1296.
He is running about 40 W and 2 yagis.  We still seem to have a frequency
discrepancy of about 800 Hz that we can't explain.  But I found it is
quite easy to tune using JT44.  It is much the same as rotating
polarization.  I am interested in trying JT44 skeds with other marginal
EME stations on both 432 and 1296.
