You were 59 today, but couldn't check in due to 432 skeds.
Made a couple contacts, pretty poor success ratio.
JA5OVU random O/O
Heard KB4CNI - he did not hear me.
Heard DL9NDD (both skeds) not good enough for QSO
Heard W7QX first transmission, not again.
DL8OBU heard me, could not hear him.
Many attempts with RW1AW - he heard me, I cud not hear him.
Heard the LU you mentioned on the net - STRONG
Lots of sked cancellations
Improvements in store for 432: new relay (Transco thanks to Lucky)
Better preamp (possibly cascade), separate TX/RX feedlines.
1296 is on the back burner.
Looking forward to next SW!! Its gotta get better (but who can
complain)? Its like golf...its that one good shot that keeps you coming
back (or fishing, for non-golfers).
Thanks & 73
