Dear friends
we made several very nice QSO's on 144MHz using JT44, some were marginal
stations. We will be QRV for JT44 after the contest starting December 2002.
On 432/1296 we are much better equipped then on 144. We think we can work
marginal stations there. If you like to try with us let us know
( We will advice about our activities! Please send us a note
and you are on the list.

Subj:    222 MHz EME in contest
Date:   10/18/02 10:34:49 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Hello Gents.

I am sending this note to Grant, Ray, John, Mike, Bro. and myself in trying
to generate some activity for 222 MHz in the EME contest next weekend.  If
you know of some stations that are capable then please pass along and lets
try it.

I do know ve6ta, wa4njp, and myself wd5ago will be there.

For fixed array stations I can look at the rising moon only, Else the main
activity time would be when other activity should be at a minimum.

North Am. window is about 10:30 to 12:30 UTC the 10/26 and an hour later on
the 27th. Not too early in the morning for us to make some noise and show
there is life on this band!

WA4NJP - WD5AGO  -  1100,   on 222.025
WD5AGO - VE6TA      -   1130,               .025

I am running now 4 yagies and a 3cx800

Hi there -- Just wanted to let you know that I fired off the amplifier for 222Mhz this AM. Darned thing blew out the plate meter but when I got it all settled down I am driving it with 5 watts, all the drive I have and get just over 550 w atts output. Not bad for an old plumbers special.  That's all the ganews from out west --
