worked K4AR on 70cm on Oct 22th 23oo utc for #108.
He had a pretty good signal 429 up to 449 sometimes.

K4AR is now fully qrv on 432 eme. I put the preamp on the mast
over the weekend, seems to be working fine.
I will be active during the Contest, looking for randoms and calling CQ.
I do not wish to make schedules for the October session, but will accept
schedules in November session of Contest.

From: email@example.com (Casas y Tierras)
Sadly a last minute change in situation here will cause me to be away for
the weekend. please forward to JA6AHB my apologies. Pass to him I expect
to be here Nov weekend,
but prefer to run random in the Test. Running a series of skeds is fine
for SW, but I loose it when a contest is going on. Where's the Test in
At any rate, things are looking up here, and this could very well be the
big change here we have been waiting for.

Subj: 23EME: 1.night results!
Date: 10/30/99 6:09:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time
despite bad weather (very wet fog) and a never ever visible moon the first
night (30.Oct 0-8 UTC) was not too bad. I worked HB9BBD,JA6CZD(#),EA3UM,
K5JL,OE9ERC,N2IQU,KD4LT,VE1ALQ,K2UYH,HB9SV all on 23cm random.
Only heard were OK1DFC, DH9FAG and OH2AXH. I also was called by 2 stations,
from which I could not get the call....my 3m dish seems to be too small when
conditions are not too good....sorry!
I will call CQ on or around 1296.025 (my TX QRG) on October 31st between
0100 and 0200 UTC and again between 0700 and 0830 UTC. Please listen for
my weak signal.
In the last weeks I received QSLs from K2DH,OH2AXH,DD1XF,OK1KIR,K4QI,JH5LUZ
and WA6KBL (a very special N6BQ memorial QSL) for 23EME. Many thanks, friends!
I hope to contact some more stations as I still miss at least some of the
73 and good luck with great reflexions,
