Subject: NET NOTES 26 June 1999 From: K1RQG Saturday 26 June 12:07:00 -0500 (EST) Most recent Schedules from Klaus, DL4EBY Also submit your sked requests to Klaus: KLaus, DL4EBY Subj: 1999 ARRL EME Contest Date: 6/24/99 1:17:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time From: Lionel H. Edwards, VE7BQH Sender: MOON-NET@VM.STLAWU.EDU (MOON-NET) Reply-to: ve7bqh@WIMSEY.COM (Lionel H. Edwards) To: MOON-NET@VM.STLAWU.EDU To All EME Stations: The choices for the 1999 ARRL International EME Contest are: 1. October 2/3 and 30/31 OR 2. October 30/31 November 27/28 Last year the dates recommended by the EME community were chosen to not conflict with the IARU Region 1 VHF Contest in Europe. Despite the best effort to accommodate terrestrial contest, there were still criticism from mid to northern Europe that the second leg of the EME contest was to late into the winter with the result that the weather was and can be very poor. This year the situation is not quite the same, but has some similarities. 1. October 2/3 and 30/31 will provide the better expected weather for the Northern latitudes in Europe and the North east of North America. However, the 432 MHz & up IARU Region 1 UHF Contest is on Oct 2/3 2. October 30/31 and November 27/28 is free of any other contest dates but the weather has the probability of being not good during the second weekend. To give the some specific feed back to allow the ARRL to make a final decision on the major EME International Contest of the year, would you please advise me of your choice at: VE7BQH NO reasons are require, ONLY your choice, please. If you have contact with EME stations who do not have E Mail, please include their choice in your E Mail reply. Please have your input into me by no later than June 30. I will publish the input on MOON-NET and forward the results to Joel, W5ZN. 73, Lionel, VE7BQH email@example.com KB8RQG: 6 meters is open now.. not much activity on 70cm this month..
