Subj:    AL7OB NetNotes for Sunday 10/3
Date:   10/2/99 9:40:14 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: (Melum, Mike)

Welcome back Joe!

I have hardly been able to hear the net since you left.  I must miss
your bodacious signal.  I will try again Sunday.  

I had pretty good luck for a change:  QSOs with :
DL9NDD, SM3AKW, EA3DXU, G3LTF, W7CNK, K4QI, and K1FO  (5 new ones).  I
worked OE5JFL and W7QX last week and SM2CEW since the last SW (3 more
new ones).  Its gotta be the relay Lucky sent me!

Still trying to get earth work done before winter for the 9.2 meter.  I
will probably be working on the AZ/EL mount all winter anyway.  This
thing is HUGE!  Trusses and 24 petals alone = 2500 lbs.  Found a surplus
AZ/EL from an old miltary dish for $100 which may turn out to be TOO

I can't believe I'm doing this!  Back in January I was going to make ONE
EME QSO just to say I did it.
Thanks & 73

For your net Notes Joe
I had partial with Ivo, ZS6AXT on 5760Mhz.   I sent him M's and he did
hear me but one of us will have to change polarity.  Ivo is Vertical,
I am horizontal and there is little to no polarity change between us, so only
a partial again.
1 initial on 70cm with RW1AW # 177
2 initials on 23cm, I5MPK # 119,
I0UGB # 120, worked 30 minutes before sked time on random.
I0UGB would become badly broken up, but believe he is aware of it.
Nil form W3XS, but have him in my log as K3EAH.....still need QSL card.
Nil from IK3GHY????
Going to bed but will be here at 1630 & 1700UTC for 23cm Skeds.
Long haul since 0100UTC, hi.
Thanks & Best 73,  Darrell - Ve1ALQ

        Telecom conference.. was testing 2 W7CNK preamps and are very good and 
        relative measurements indicate those tested at Washington, DC (PYP)
