Hi Al, hi Joe,
For publishing in newsletter and net notes.....
CQ EME CQ EME de DJ5MN DJ5MN DJ5MN bk
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
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:

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.

K1RQG de OE5JFL
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)
