EME in 2007

The ARRL EME contest at the weekend spurred me on to get the dish back out and have a listen, to my surprise some stations made easy listening in cw with my poor efficiency dish at the moment.

Dish is still 1.8M but with OK1DFC Septum feed.

Stations positively identified listed below, some recordings too.

On CW:
LX1DB CW
LX1DB Weak SSB!
OK1CA CW
SM4DHN CW
EA6VQ
G4CCH CW
OZ4MM

On JT65C ES5PC, G4DZU

There were a lots more stations out there but my cw is still quite poor and vy hard to identify with the fading and signlas being very weak.





On 30th October i managed my first QSO on 23cm EME with Howard C4CCH using the JT65 Mode, i was received at best -26dB. My output power was ~35Watts to the newly fitted Septum feed from OK1DFC.

1st EME QSO on JT65!




The setup for this QSO:
