My new EME-antenna, BV70-8.5L

My first QSO takes place at 07/30/2000 4:50 with JH0WJF. Due to much wind in my location I experimented with several antenna configurations. All these configurations work. With only one antenna it is very toilsome to receive the weak signals.

4x9BV 8.5wl 2x9BV 8.5wl 1x9BV 8.5wl

While the configuration with two antennas a big storm (160 km/h) destroyed the gearwheels in the KR500.

See my whole EME log.

Again my antenna was disassembled by high winds.

I stopped EME operation.
