Subj: G3SEK 432MHz EME report, August 1999
Date: 8/16/99 1:47:52 AM Eastern Daylight Time

My activity has been very sporadic this year, with a lot of
interruptions due to other commitments. I wasn't able to be on the air
on the Saturday morning of 7 August, and only worked W7CNK near to
moonset. Sunday 8 August, worked JA6AHB (449/559)#, JA5OVU (559/559),
VK4AFL (O/O)#, OZ6OL (O/O)#, G3HUL (449/449), K0RZ (449/449) in contest,
DF3RU (559/449) and W7CNK (449/549).
Also heard VK2BEK (abt 0300 ) and HG4I (abt 0900). Both stations were
calling 1x1 CQs with good signals, but apparently not listening
seriously for calls.
That makes me think it's probably time to repeat the standard QSO
procedure, BUT not the same old thing again. It really does need a new
section on random CQs and QSOs. Allen: if you have an electronic version
of the last version of the procedure, please e-mail it and I will try to
write an update.
The GS35b amp is working well, giving a solid 1kW at the antenna. I have
spent some time developing a "universal" control board for triode amps,
and that should be ready to roll out Real Soon Now.
I should be QRV for September weekend, and will be happy to take skeds.
Looking for AL7OB (short path only), RW1AW, W7SZ and also of course
VK2BEK and HG4I if they are genuine initials.
Probably won't be QRV for October 2/3, but both contest weekends are
marked KEEP CLEAR in my calendar!

Hi Joe !
All fine here. Put the 8x21el. F9FT down. Not qrv at this time. Working on a 9bv
system, but the mechanical construction looks not as perfect as aspected. Not
sure what to do, maybe putting up the old array again. I need a bigger tower,
but I think not this year. I´ll tell you when I´m back on EME.
regards to Pearl
