By Jul. 2012:
- 2.3 GHz EME / I'm QRV.
64 initials and 27 Countries (162 QSO's)Only active since end 2010.
A lot of random SSB activity - 24 SSB QSO's.
Using the 5.6m dish with all equipment located at the feed
Super VE4MA feed and 150W right at the feed
World record of distance on 2.3GHz - VK3NX / CT1DMK - QSO on 12 Dez 2010
- 5.6 GHz EME / I'm QRV.
40 initials and 23 Countries (111 QSO's)Using the 5.6m dish with all equipment located at the feed
Most activity was in CW with 2 QSO's in SSB.
Early days operation was in linear polarization with 45W at the feed
Nowadays using circular polarization with the same 45W (and much better results)
World record of distance on 5.7GHz - VK3NX / CT1DMK - QSO on 5 April 2009
- 10 GHz EME / I'm QRV.
27 initials and 12 Countries (55 QSO's)Using the 5.6m dish with all equipment located at the feed
All activity was in CW.
Operation in the early days (1997-99) was in linear polarization with 20W output
Now I can use 50W output (but due to failures I revert to the old TWT w/ 20W most of the time)
I could quickly become active in circular polarization if most stations move to CP !!!
- 24 GHz EME / I'm 50% QRV and at RX only.
Only RX is ready... since 2003 I've been testing stuff at 24GHz
Early days using am 2.2m antenna with all equipment located at the feed.
Never managed to get my hands on a surplus TWT's that worked :-(
Hope to solve the TX power issue very soon and become QRV.
Some QSL cards from the early days of 10GHz
