Hello, I worked OH3PO (559,559 first call) and DL9NDD (559,oo) last
night to bring my score to 6x5.
I called (only called loud stations 559+)
DF3RU (he faded, but I though he came back?)
The only letters they seem to know are Q,R and Z :)
KA0RYT (on tropo too)
I didn't hear any EU stations until after 0500z or so,, is that due to
faraday and me having only horizontal polarization? I thought polarity
switching/rotation was more common on 432? I'll be on again tonight
(28th) so LISTEN HARDER for my 150 watts. 73 Matt KB0VUK

Someone in Europe (Jurgen ?) was asking about W6TE. Thats the
new call for WA6YDI. (8 xM2 99wl??) and LA-70B amp.
Don't know if he's really on yet, is supposed to be QRV though.

cwnr dl9ndd, dl4mea k1fo k0rz, w7sz

DL Time (32000 bps): < 1 minute
Due to strong winds I could not be QRV today. They had forecast gales all
weekend, so it was a bonus to be QRV on 27th.
I'd kept my sked partner K3HZO informed of the wx status.
I hope to be on over the Christmas period.
Subj: F5HRY report
Date: 11/28/99 5:24:58 AM Eastern Standard Time
I spent a little while on 432 EME this week end.
I was the first time since ARRL 1997.
Nothing special but still my (...) local QRM from the radio
localization system on Orly Airport. I am only 5 km away
from it. It is nearly impossible to get throught.
I worked OH2PO, N9AB, K1FO, DL9KR and K5GW.
Please note (and TX to Jan DL9KR) that F5KKD is a
club station in JN18 (4x26 and 600W). F5PMB, F6GYH,
and possibly F4BRC are the operators. Thus, even if they
did TX with their own calls, it is definitly the same station !

52x24 is my score so far (best ever)
saturdaymorning propagation was not so good
saturday/sundaynight was super good conditions (magnificent echoes all the time)
Pa failed on saturdayevening (bias circuit 3055 went dead and let it draw 2 amps, fortunately I was looking to the meter when it happened, and switched off asap)
lost lots of time repairing, twICE, hi
Tube still ok, HV PS also!
you can't kill those russians...(at least the GS35B tube)
is there anybody who has a simple and GOOD schematic to bias such grounded grid triode without use of power zener diodes
some protection in case of a tube flashover comes in handy too...
does there exist a HF linear with this tube?? (must be great! and cheap! )
my pictures are at: http://www.azurvital.com/on5of.htm
SM3AKW sorry I thought we allready worked, we still have to work, and we were side by side on freq for allmost an hour...

Well, it's obviously time to get this system totally apart and
re-furbished. When you can't raise DL9KR for over 2 hrs, it ain't
Did QSO N9AB yesterday, after the note to you. Last eve K1FO and OZ4MM, so
only able to get to big guys would tell something too. Own echos weren't
too bad tho!?
Heard/called many time DL9NDD, DF3RU, DL4ZA, DL9KR, and a few others too.
This poor showing of 5 QSOs is an all-time low! 'Nuff sed on the system's
Am on to about 1530 or so this AM, only hearing a couple, K5GW and another
not too strong 2 KHz higher. Nil own echos this AM either. However, found
yesterday there was a 5º error in Az, which came about this past week
apparently. I had re-aligned last month, but guess the strong winds of
late are doing their bit. Summer seems to be already here, almost 3 weeks
early with the high winds. I'll hold off until after Dec to take array
down, to try once more with AL7OB. Won't have a lot of time, as have to do
a lot of study effort to pass the CG exams in Feb & hamming must take a
back seat for a while.
Warmest holiday greetings to all if I don't get back to you before end of
the year. May the end year of this mil., and the start of the next mil. in
the next 13 months bring us all much greater EME joys than ever before.
