Just worked VK4AFL with o's both ways.  Was hearing you on Satureday,
but guess that my puny 100 watts isn't making back there.  Am in the
process of fixing my Henry amp, and found a bad socket pin (part of was
missing).  They don't leave much room in there to do any soldering.

Hi Joe,

I had a lot of fun operating the contest, but not a lot of success. 
K1DS came by on Friday night to get a taste of EME. Rick edits the Pack
Rat Newsletter (W3CCX) and had attended the Prague EME Conference. 
Conditions again seemed very poor on 70 cm. I had to QRZ just about
every station that called.  Part of the problem may have been my preamp.
I checked it on Saturday afternoon and found the NF had degraded to 1.75
dB!  I was able to retune it back to the 0.3 ~ 0.4 dB range.  To be
safe, I switched preamps.  Copy seemed better on Sunday, but still was
not very good.  We ended with 36x24 on 432 and 47x24 on 1296 with 2
initials on 70 cm.

I am interested in skeds on 70 and 23 cm, particularly JT44 but also CW.

I will preparing the NL next week end for the SW on Dec 21/22.
