CQ EME CQ EME de DJ5MN DJ5MN DJ5MN bk 

Dear 23cm-EMEers,

This November was a very successful month for me by means of 
23cm-EME. On the 20th I worked PY5ZBU now completing my 
WAC on 23cm. Due to a catastrophic accident in the HV-PS
of my final TH327-PA 10 minutes before of the PY-sked, I only
could run about 100 watts at the feed, but Don has superb ears
picking up even my QRPP-signal!

Then, in the 2. part of the ARRL-EME-contest I was 
able to add 17 more QSOs to my 27 of the first part on 23cm.
My final result was 44 QSOs (43 pure random) with 24 multipiers and
16 new initials. For me using just a 3m-dish this is a DREAM as
I never expected more than 30 QSOs. Smallest stations worked were
JA4BLC (6m dish and QRP 30w at feed), G3LQR (4.2m dish and 150w in
the shack) and DF3RU (3m dish, about 300w at feed). Additionally 
I heard some 17 more stations off the moon on 23cm, which I could 
not work as they seemed only to answer CQ-calls of the BIG GUNs or
they simply disappeared too fast. Now I am trying to get skeds with 
these stations. 

During the second leg of the contest I also was able to complete
with VK2FLR on 144MHz EME for a new country and my only one QSO
on 2m in the contest.

Please remind that I cannot take skeds on 2m or 70cm at the moment,
but I am keen on working new initials on 23cm EME. If anybody is 
interested in a sked with me on 23, please arrange sked via the
70cm-and-up-EME-net (K1RQG on 14.345 kHz) or email to me:
dj5mn@9a0tcp.ampr.org

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2K !

Joe,
I dont know when I will be on either off the moon or on HF, my father
suffered two broken blood vessels in his head.  He is presently in a
hospital in southern oregon, and my brother and I are trading shifts,
every two weeks.  Sorry.  Best wishes for the holidays.

Hi Joe,
Just for fun I made notes about the signal strength of stations I worked
in the EME contest.
My antenna is a 10m dish, RX  bandwidth  was 100Hz.
I took the mean value of the three highest peaks during each QSO.
In the case of mixed polarity on 70cm (same strength H/V), I added 3dB.
There was no wind during my activity, so I could always position my antenna
exactly to the moon.
My apologize if somebody feels his call is not listed high enough in the dB
scale.In that case be sure it was just conditions or misreading on MY side
;-)
Well, there is of course always an up and down of some dB, but I think
there were no big changes in conditions during whole contest time
on 70cm ( I can switch polarity) and 23cm. On 2m it was much more different,
so I did not make notes/list for that band.
For comparisons: 20dB in my receiver needs around 500kW EIRP on 70cm,
             and 800kW EIRP on 23cm (my system is not so good on that band)

Subj:    EU-WW EME CONTEST 2000
Date:   12/9/99 2:33:54 PM Eastern Standard Time
From:   G3SEK@ifwtech.demon.co.uk (Ian White)


                   EUROPEAN WORLDWIDE EME CONTEST 2000
                   ***********************************
                      Sponsored by REF and DUBUS


The EU WW EME contest is intended to encourage worldwide activity on 
moonbounce.

Multipliers are DXCC countries plus *** ALL W/VK/VE STATES ***
This gives equal chances for stations from North America, Europe and
Oceania.

The rules reward random QSOs, but do not penalize skeds on 2.3GHz or
above.

1. Contest Dates & Periods

The contest happens during two full weekends: 144 and 1296MHz on the
MARCH weekend, and 432MHz, 2300MHz and above on the APRIL weekend.

Each weekend of the contest begins at 00:00 UTC on Saturday and ends at
24:00 UTC on Sunday.

2. Bands and dates

First weekend:  144MHz and 1296MHz           18/19 MARCH 2000
Second weekend: 432MHz, 2300MHz and above    08/09 APRIL 2000

Note - only 3 weeks between the two weekends! 
18/19 March is chosen particularly for low sky noise on 144MHz.
08/09 April is chosen for perigee and longer operating time.

3. Sections

QRP       144MHz    <100kW EIRP
          432MHz    <400kW EIRP
          1296MHz   <600kW EIRP
       >= 2300MHz   no separate QRP/QRO categories

QRO       On 144, 432 and 1296MHz, stations with EIRP equal to or
greater than stated above.

PRO       Non-amateur equipment or antenna.
          PRO stations will have scores listed separately.

There are no separate multi-operator classes. Multi-operator and QRO
stations will be highlighted in the general classifications.

4. Exchange

Callsigns + TMO/RST + R.

5. Scoring 

100 points for each random QSO completed.

 10 (ten) points for each sked QSO completed on bands below 2.3GHz.

100 points for each sked QSO completed on 2.3GHz or higher bands.

6. Multipliers 

Each DXCC country (except W/VE/VK), or EACH INDIVIDUAL STATE worked
in W/VE/VK. 

Multipliers count only if worked by RANDOM (except on 2.3GHz or
above).

States and provinces can be determined after the contest using
address lists in recent Newsletters or in DUBUS.

7. Total scores

Single band entries: sum of points multiplied by sum of multipliers.
There will be one QRP winner and one QRO winner on each band.

Multiband entries:
(Total sum of points on all bands) * (total sum of multipliers on all
bands)

There will be one QRP multiband winner and one QRO multiband winner.
Multiband stations will also be listed as an entry on each separate band
worked, and can also win single-band awards.

10. Reporting 

Copy of the log for each band with details of points, multipliers and
total points.

The following information MUST also be included for each band:

1.  Output power, transmit cable loss, antenna type and gain.
2.  Working category: QRO/QRP
                      single/multi operator
3.  Name(s) of all operators
4.  Locator/State.

Other information is welcome: Comments, conditions, grid locator,
other station details, photographs, etc...

11. Awards 

A certificate will be sent to each entry. All QRP/QRO band winners and 
QRP/QRO multiband winners will receive a trophy.

In each section, the highest-scoring station in the southern hemisphere 
will receive a special certificate.

12. Logs 

Log entries MUST be postmarked no later than 30 days after the end of
the second weekend (i.e. in the mail or e-mail by 9 MAY 2000),
