Subj: eclipse QSO 23cm
Date: 8/14/99 1:10:10 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: DJ9YW@t-online.de (Heinrich F. Reckemeyer)
Hello Joe and Al
On 11.Aug.99 we had a nearly total eclipse of the sun. My QTH was 400km in the
north of the umbra. At 10h35 UT the maximum was reached with 91% covering.
During the eclipse the temperature reduced 3°C. At ca.11h00 UT I turned my 23cm
EME system on and it happened to be that I heard the CQ-call from Erich, OE9ERC.
Even though the sun was still covered with 43%, we had a QSO with "O"/"O"! QSO
Start 11h05 UT (sun noise 13,8dB) QSO end 11h11 UT (sun noise 14,1dB). Distance
to the moon was 373382km. AZ 172° and EL 52°. At 12h00 UT the sun was full
visible again and delivered 16,3 dB at SFi 127. Erich had a sun noise of 17,5dB
in the QSO and without covering of 56%. The VK3UM/F1EHN program watched
with 0,1° exactly.
Info: Giuseppe,I0UGB is now ready with the e-mail adress:email@example.com
my wish:I need the QSL´s from W0KJY (Febr.98),WA4NJP and JF3HUC for 23cm EME

>my qth is about 60 km from the edge of the totality zone, which meant 99%
>occultation. There were thick clouds so I stayed home and watched the sun noise.
>>From the normal value of 14.5 dB (at flux 135 and no eruptions) the Y factor
>steadily decreased to 8 dB at max occ and then returned to normal. This shows
>that a large part of the 70 cm noise comes from the corona or there would have
>been a decrease of 20 dB, ie. to an almost unmeasurable level.
>Wonder if others have made similar measurements.
Subj: sked results

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (John Fuchs)
Can't make the net today as I will be at a local hamfest.
On the sked with al7ob-we2y nil hrd but I did hear my echoes
pretty good so I guess the net Faraday was near 0 degrees.I heard Jerry
W7QX with "m" sig trying sked with AL7OB.I also heard tones after
Jerry's sequence.I'm guessing that was Mike(AL7OB).
