Despite WX problems in many parts of the world, the 2nd July SW
turned out well. For a summer time SW with no dxpeditions or contest
activity and competition from the CSVHF Conference in the states,
activity faired very well. And conditions, especially on 1296 where
there seemed to be more SSB than CW, were pretty good.
PARIS 98 EME CONFERENCE NEWS
A good place for the conference has been located. It is not 100% sure,
but very likely. It is located in PARIS, and is reasonably priced.
More information will come later. Unfortunately only a few people have
pre-registered for the conference. [This is a problem. I have been hearing
a lot of very favorable comments here in the states. The XYLs are very
much in favor of Paris!] It is really very important that you pre-regis-
ter. This is the only way to give an accurate (and reasonable) price for
the conference. There are 3 ways to register:
1) The WWW site (only 52 connections so far, including ours!)
2) Fax to F1EHN
3) E-mail to F5HRY or any of the organizing team
- Frank worked on 1296 back in April HB9BHU, DJ9YW, W2UHI, HB9BBD,
in June JA4BLC, OK1KIR, DJ9YW, ZS6AXT, VE1ALQ, W2UHI, N2IQU, KB2AH on SSB,
OZ4MM on SSB and DC6UW on SSB for an initial, and during the early July
SW only GW3XYW and W2UHI. Frank was disappointed by the activity during
this last weekend. He was on for the 2nd July SW, but we do not yet have
- Chris and EME "old timer" brings us up to date on his activities --
I have not been active for a while. I moved to a new QTH, and the "new"
house requires a lot of work. Most of it is now done, and I am looking
forward to being QRV again on 70 cm. DC6UW, Norbert, a new station on 23
cm EME, is in JO44 and relative close to me - much closer than Per,
DK7LJ (and DL0SHF). Norbert uses the same type dish and feed (VE4MA)
as Per. I took down my 2x17 el yagis for 144 MHz to make room for the
4 x 33 el yagi array for 70 cm. EME wise I will concentrate more on 432
MHz than on the DL0SHF operation. My new address is (Christoph Petermann,
Pommernweg 11, D 24229 Schwedeneck). My locator is JO54al (the same as
My telephone is **49-4308-182050, e-mail is:
- Herve writes -- I am now the happy owner of a 3.10 m dish good to
10 GHz (TV uplinks), which I plan to put on 23 cm, (maybe 3 cm if I can
find a >25 w TWTA, mine is only 10 w!). The problem is that this dish is
rather deep (f/d =3D 0.3). I need to build a feed for that dish, and as
far as I remember the IMU one is for 0.5 to 0.6, and the VE4MA one for
around 0.4! [The VE4MA feed is adjustable. The beam can be optimizer by
changing the position of the scalar ring with respect to the mouth of the
horn. There is no real great feed I know of for a .3 f/d, but the VE4MA
works quite well for deep dishs - better than anything else I have seen.
I recommend its use.] Maybe someone can help with ideas? I believe
OE5JFL has done some work with deep dishes. This dish will be mounted at
my home QTH (different from F6KSX), to replace my 432 MHz 4 yagis.
I cannot use them anymore because of QRM from the radio localization
system in France. In the future, I can be deleted from the 70 cm list.
[I am Sorry to hear about this. Can anything be done?] Unfortunately
absolutely nothing for the moment. I have found no solution to the
interference problem. We are waiting for a new band plan. We are 2nd in
F for the 430-434 band and radio localization is 1st.
- Doug was disappointed with the July SW -- I had only 3 QSO's in about
20 hours of operations! No other stations were heard. [There was quite a
bit of activity on 70 cm during the SW. You can see this from the reports.
Possibly your poor results are related to the times you were listening.
Activity does seem to be concentrated during the common window between
Eur and NA. This is a big problem for stations in other parts of the
world. Particularly for those with limited windows - even in the
western US and Canada.] Since the contest, activity on 432 seems to
be getting less and less. It seems hardly worthwhile to maintain the
432 setup for just the contests. Is this because the trend is towards
the higher bands and 432 has now become old hat? [There is no question
that people migrate toward the frontier, but we have been seeing a
continuing flow of new stations moving up to 70 cm too. And many of the
older stations who now operate on the higher bands, are still regularly
QRV on 432. I try to operate 432 on Saturday and on 1296 on Sunday of
the SWs.] A suggestion I would like to make is that when activity is low
we listen on transmit during the 1st 5 min on the hour and half hour.
This would be much better than listening to nothing but noise and ones
own echoes for hours on end! Of course, if things brighten up it could
be a different matter. Anyway, I will use this method when activity
- Peter had a frustrating time during the July session -- Condx seemed
good on 432 and excellent on 1296, but I had big problems on that band.
On 13 cm, on 26 July I worked OE9ERC with a terrific signal (579) and
heard DL9EBL at a similar level, but he didn't hear me. I also heard and
called OE9XXI (539), but no reply. I was hearing weak echoes at the time.
I have since found a major break in the feedline outer jacket which I think
was the cause of excess loss on 2.3 GHz. I now have the feedline loss
down to 3.5 dB (60 m of feedline) on that band, and I should be louder
as a result. I then moved to 432 on 26 July and worked CT1DMK - nice
readable signal, then K2UYH (559). I put out lots of CQs, but no activity,
though KB3PD was a nice signal on his skeds. On 27 July I started on 1296,
but had problems with my 6 tube amp oscillating which I couldn't cure.
Then a power transistor in the LO chain blew and when I'd replaced that
I ran up the PA again to hear the sound most dreaded by 23 cm operators -
Running Water!! So that was it for the day, everything out of the rack and
dry it out, etc. I'm still sorting out the cause. I heard on 23 cm
ON5RR, S59DCD, HB9SV, OK1KIR, VE3BQN, ZS6AXT, W2UHI, KB2AH, K2UYH, K2DH,
HB9BHU, OH2AXH, PA3CSG and F2TU. Excellent copy on SSB from several stations
including K2UYH and F2TU. I don't know why the 6 tube PA is now going
unstable and am interested in ideas from anyone for a cure. My standings
are now on 432: #315, DXCC 54, WAS 47 and grids 204; on 1296: #124, DXCC 28,
WAS 19 and grids 101; and on 2304: #11, DXCC 9, WAS 2 and grids 11. I
intend to be at the Paris conference next year.
- Peter says -- Signals seemed very good over the weekend, although
skeds didn't workout very well and most contacts were made on random.
I worked on 26 July JA2KRW nil - not QRV due to severe WX, NA4N nil,
CT1DMK (O/O) for initial #67, SM2CEW (559/549), K2UYH (559/549),
OK1KIR (O/O), WI7Z (O/O) #68, DF3RU (559/549), W7FN (O/O) #69,
K3HZO nil - [presently not QRV and rebuilding his array after storm
damage], KB3PD nil - the moon was only 10 deg el and behind trees and
CWNR JH4JLV, and on 27 July at 0755 I was called by UR5?? for an hour but
couldn't get the call - a chirp on sig and my narrow filter didn't help.
Stations heard were DL6WU, KB3PD (before sked), G3SEK and G3HUL. My home
brew auto-tracking and polarity rotation is working FB. Power was up to
500 w, but I should have a little more for the next sked weekend.
Skeds are welcome via e-mail at:
PETER, G4ERG or the NL.
- Yoshiro's July EME report -- I was pleased to welcome Jinson,
HL5QO from Korea to my QTH on the last weekend of July. Jinson traveled
to us by ferry boat and railway in stormy WX and stayed 2 nights. As you
know he had heard successfully OE9XXI's signal on 1296 two years before
for the 1st ever 1296 EME in Korea. My friends (JR4AEP, JR4BRS and JA4CMZ)
also welcomed Jinson to their stations. Jinson is fighting the Korean
radio authority to get a high power licence for 1296 moonbounce. Korean
hams are allowed only 1 w on 23cm, (similar to Japan). I was attacked by
a big typhoon during the SW. This limited activity by many JA stations.
Fortunately the wind ceased occasionally on Sunday morning and I was able
to work on 23 cm ON5RR (O/O) for initial #70.
- Dave submits the following thoughts on making skeds -- It is perfectly
acceptable for stations to not take, make, or accept skeds - that is their
prerogative. But, if a station DOESN'T want skeds, I think IT IS THAT
PERSON'S RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM K1RQG OR KLAUS OF THAT FACT.
I have skeded a number of stations repeatedly - mentioning their call signs
here would not be productive - if they get the notes or newsletter,
they know who they are- and they simply do not show up. Others listening
at the same time have confirmed this. If I had an infinite amount of time
to spend playing on the moon, it wouldn't matter so much. But I don't -
so I try to maximize the number of stations I can work by requesting skeds
with new ones. I believe that I'm not the only person in this boat - very
few of us can spend from moonrise till moonset just looking for stations
these days. The position of the moon has not been perfect for skeds, as was
noted during a recent discussion on the 20 m net - and maybe this makes
skeds an even more valid solution to the problem of working new ones -
you know you only HAVE to be present for the skeds. Any other time spent
on the moon is strictly by desire... and success breeds more desire,
in my opinion. I guess the bottom line is that accepting a sked is
like making a COMMITMENT to the other station. If people don't want
to make that commitment, then they should let those who set up the skeds
know, so that those of us who request skeds won't expect a commitment
from those who don't want them, and we won't request them. Net
participation is also very important. It's another tool in the EMEers
toolbox - another way to get and request skeds with new stations, to
find out the results of QSOs, etc.
- Tom has the following comments on a 23 cm frequency for calling small
stations -- I would like to propose reserving .020 +/- 3 kHz for a small
station calling freq. Smaller stations would call CQ on this frequency.
The bigger stations would make and finish their contacts with the smaller
stations, but then move on to where ever. It is a fact that there is much
QRM on .010. This is not the real problem. The problem is that marginal
stations will call CQ on or near .010, and not be heard by other
marginal stations and even bigger stations because of the QRM.
These stations get disgusted and leave the air. (I hear this all the
time off the moon.) NOW who is a marginal station? I think we all
know if we are or not.. Me, XXI, UYH, UHI, DH, ERC, MM, ... and so
on just to mention a few. If we all could come to a agreement on
this, I believe activity on 1296 would improve significantly.
- Scott is very close to getting on 23 cm EME with his new 6.7 m dish.
Initial tests indicate the system is working FB. His 1st look at Sun noise
indicated 16.5 dB. There is still work needed to get the feed system
optimized. With the help of Darrell, VE1ALQ, Scott has installed the
tracking system designed by F1EHN using a US Digital encoder and tilt
sensor. This system is very accurate, and with the tilt sensor, you can
remove any flaws built into the dish mounting mechanics. One lesson
learned is that the system has to move slow to prevent overshoot and
hunting. A new gearbox with higher ratios, a faster CPU, and a remount of
the tilt sensor at the pivot point corrected early tracking problem.
Scott hopes to be on with 100 w in a couple of weeks. Scott was on
70 cm EME for a very short time during the July SW. Work still takes
lots of his time. Scott heard several stations but did not attempt to
work anybody due to a flaky preamp. Scott has since repaired the problem
and all is working OK with the 70 cm dish.
- Rick reports -- I was on 23cm EME the 2nd day of the SW from
1000 till 1200. I heard my own echoes quite well at times. My sked
results were: DL9EBL nil - I don't think he was there, S59DCD nil
and ON5RR (M/O) - If he is still running a 6 m dish and 40 w he
was quite good copy! Heard but not worked was KB2AH on SSB on 010,
and VE3BQN with a very good signal. I was running about 250 w all
evening. -- Rick plans to concentrate on 6 cm EME in Aug and will
not be on 23 cm.
- Peter worked on 1296 on 12 April VK2FZ/4 (O/O) for initial #212
on linear pol. The day before they had tried with nil results. Also QSO'd
was DJ9YW (559/559). He added on 10 May SM3AKW (559/569), I5MPK (549/579)
#213, OE9ERC (579/579), W2UHI (569/589), K2DH (569/589), HB9BBD (569/569)
and NP4B (O/O) #214 and DXCC 38. On 2300 Peter QSO'd on 10/11 May NU7Z
(449/529), OE9ERC (579/579) and DF9QX (549/449), on 14 May LA8LF (449/559)
for initial #49 and DXCC 19, and on 7 June JA7BMB (549/559) #50.
Heard were DF9QX, OK1KIR, LX1DB and ZS6AXT. [Peter's report arrived in
time for the last NL, but was missed due to an error - sorry.] During July
Peter worked 9H1ES in Malta. He says Fortunato was running linear pol and
having pointing problems, but that he= is working on a circular feed and
should be in much better shape soon.
- Marc and (ON7EH) write -- We were active on 1296 only on Sunday of
the July SW. We started operation at about 0100 and shutdown at about 1345.
In our little country we had quite a bit of wind and rain, but the dish
kept more or less pointed to the Moon. We missed our sked with VK2BE due
to a failure of our PA HV power supply. During the night we still had some
sparking in the capacitors (voltage drops more that 300 V). This sparking
produced the chirping sound on our CW. Sorry for this, it will be
repaired next time. We did not hear a thing from VK5MC during our sked,
nor from other VKs. We worked the following initials JA4BLC, DL9EBL,
DF9QX, DJ9YW, HB9BHU, SM2CEW,VE3BQN and NU7Z. Stations heard were
JH5LUZ, OK1KIR, F2TU, DD1XF, ZS6AXT and PA3CSG. We made 17 QSOs
this SW. The visitors in the shack liked best the dual mode contact
with OE9XXI. Peter had an excellent SSB signal (55), we replied on CW.
During the Aug SW we plan to be active only on 24 Aug from 0500 to 1100
- Stig's June reports just missed the July NL -- I am sorry for this
late mail, but my e-mail has been down the last few weeks. I worked on
28 June on 2304/2424 JH3EAO nil, WA8WZG nil and partial G3LTF, on 29
June on 1296 DC6UW for initial #120 on SSB, DD1XF on SSB, K2UYH on SSB,
K2DH on SSB, VE1ALQ on SSB, OE9ERC on SSB, SM3AKW, ZS6AXT, W2UHI, G3LTF,
KB2AH and W4OP #121 - heard were HB9BBD and VE3BQN, on 2 July also on
1296 NL7F #122 with the dish behind the trees on both ends!, on 5 July
on 2304 G3LTF and WA8WZG - both initials, nil JH3EAO - no other JA`s
- Jan is very disappointed with the results of his 6 m dish on 1296 and
is investigating the cause -- We measured an unacceptable leakage between
the RX and TX ports of our feed of about -4 dB. We are using a short W2IMU
horn and DJ9BV coupler. The coupler is OK so the horn is now suspected
to be the problem. I found no nulling post was used, and the length of
the straight section does not seem correct (42 cm, normally used with
polarizer screws). [You do not want to use a hybrid with the IMU horn
if the polarization section is in place?] We need to modify the feed
after our holidays and will check further before actual mounting in dish.
I obtained a 3 m solid dish with azimuth drive (ex Andrews) to replace
the 2 m dish to be used for 3 cm EME.
- Mike sends bad news. Two booms of his 8 yagi array were broken during
a spring storm. Due to the combination of bad WX and a lot of work, Mike
has not yet had a chance to repair his antennas. He will try to do so
before the ARRL EME contest. Mike also has a new e-mail address:
- Willie has not been QRV for the last 2 or 3 months because he has
been working on a new dish. The dish is 32' with an f/d of 0.55, and uses
24 ribs. The ribs were built 2 or 3 years ago. This summer Willie is
attaching the ribs to the hub and putting the screening in place. This a
big job and he is still working on the project. Willie is also remodeling
his shack - new carpet, etc. Willie is hoping to be QRV again late this Fall.
If all goes as planned, he will have a 24' dish for sale this fall or
winter, 18 ribs, 30" x 36" HUB, the screening is NG, 3/8" rings and
outside 1 inch rim are OK. The dish is for pick up only at Waldorf,
Maryland, just south of Washington, DC.
- Frank's 23 cm activity has been unusually sparse for him.
He QSO'd on 26 July DD1XF and DJ9YW, and on 27 July F2TU, OH2AXH,
ON5RR, DL9EBL, DJ9YW, HB9SV, ZS6AXT, K2UYH on SSB, KB2AH, VE1ALQ,
SM2CEW and K2DH - activity and conditions were good. Frank would
like to work a VK station on 1296 and is looking for skeds. His e-
mail address is: FRANK, W4UHI
Frank runs 500 w to a 5.5 m dish, and is willing to get on at any time
convenient to the VK station as he is retired and available any time.
His western window is limited to max of 260 deg in AZ, and a min of 25 deg
in el due to trees. His grid locator is EN73ah.
- Dale is now active on 23 cm EME with 2 x N6CA amp and a 12' dish with
KB2AH feed/preamp. He worked on 29 June OZ4MM for initial #23, F5PL, W2UHI,
KB2AH, SM3AKW #24, VE1ALQ, N6BQ #25, DJ9YW, K2DH and F1ANH #26. Dale plans
to have a 4 x 2C39 (KB2AH) amp finished for the Aug SW. He notes that he is
having a lot of fun and improving things 0.1 dB at a time.
- Ivo writes -- My XYL is back from OK2, so things are again back to
normal. I worked on 13 cm on 27 July DL9EBL (2304/2424) (559/559) for
initial #20 - but only after I moved my frequency and still have a bit of
a problem to settle the frequency of my xtals. After the sked I changed
quickly the xtal to 2320 and there was DL9EBL booming (579). It looks
like something in my 13 cm RX chain is not quite right. I didn't hear
anybody else on 2320. On Sunday with strong winds I changed to 23 cm and
worked W2UHI, K2DH, OH2AXH, VE1ALQ, SM2CEW, F2TU and K2UYH (SSB/CW) on the
horizon. I heard quite a few SSB stations well. Others heard were
PA3CSG, HB9SV, S59DCD, HB9BHU, KB2AH, DL9EBL and OE9XXI. Conditions
seemed to be good, received reports were (549 to 569). Life is better in
perigee! I am still missing a QSL card from OE9XXI for our 13 cm QSO.
- I was on 432 the 1st night of the July SW and found quite
respectable activity. I worked on 26 July at 0750 SM2CEW (559/559),
0802 N9AB (569/559), 0812 CT1DMK (549/449), O837 WB6IMC (549/579),
O900 G4ERG (549/549), 0915 G3HUL (559/559), 0933 SM3AKW (559/559),
0945 DL4KG (559/449) and 1005 G3LTF (559/559). Signals were fair,
but had some QSB to them. DL4KG had a much improved signal. The next
day I moved to 1296 and found plenty of activity and good signals.
QSO'd were at 0807 W2UHI (56/53) on SSB, 0815 F2TU (56/44) on SSB,
0820 KB2AH (57/56) on SSB, 0835 OH2AXH (569/569), 0844 ON5RR (449/549),
0853 DL9EBL (56/56) on SSB, 0908 VE1ALQ (55/55) on SSB, 0915 OE9XXI
(58/55) on SSB, 0935 ZS6AXT (559/55) - one way SSB and KB2AH again on
SSB. Things quieted down after 1000. We have completed the base for
a new dish to be used on 10 GHz - TNX KB2AH. My Moon window is very
limited to the west as well as the east in the summer. I thus was not
on for the JAs because of the low dec of the SW. I am interested in
skeds with JA stations at higher dec non-SWs. Stations interested in
skeds should contact me via e-mail.
W5ZN expects to be QRV on 70 cm EME in Aug.
W4HHK, WA4NJP, WA8WZG, W4RDI and WD5AGO were not QRV during the
July SW because of attendance at the CSVHF Conference.
VE4MA has his new dish in place and is working on feed mounting.
He is also working on a 23 cm PA using a Russian tube.
K6IBY is re-doing his final and should be QRV again on 70 cm in a
WB6IMC worked W7QX and JA5OVU in June. He is running 4 x 37 el
K1FO type yagis and 1.5 kw.
KA0RYT was at CSVHF Conference, and is ready to dig a hole for his
4.6 m dish.
F5SDD club station has antenna problems and must move their array.
They were not QRV on 70 cm as planned for the July SW, and will
let us know when they will be operational in the future.
K9BCT was listening on 23 cm during the July SW and reports DD1XF
had a great signal.
W7QX back in June worked K1FO and JA5OVU on 432. He also QRZ'd for
an hour a JR4???, but could not get the full call. Jerry was at
the CSVHF Conference in July.
W8ATH is reported to have 100 w and a 3.5 m dish from EN80 on 23

I am afraid this sounds like a broken record, but this NL is again a rush
job. I am going away for a week's vacation, but have delayed leaving to get
this out - please excuse any errors.
* The summer standing update from W0KJY has been delayed. Jim had a
hard disk crash and lost the standings. He is trying to get things back
together. But it is probably best to re-send your standings updates.
* Apparently a number of scores were missing from the ARRL's 97
EME Contest write-up. SM4IVE's score, the top on 70 cm, for example.
I am trying to find out what went wrong and will report back.
* A topic of discussion on recent 20 m nets has been the problem
of no shows on skeds. See K2DH's comments in this NL. This is not
a new problem. NL skeds are made blind. Klaus and Joe try to weed
out requests that are obviously impossible. But with the increase
in activity, (Yes activity has increased over the years!), it is
very difficult to keep track of who is real and who is not. I have
seen requests for skeds for stations who's calls were miss-
printed, (or miss-reported - HI), in a previous NL. Generally
skeds coordinators have assumed the station requesting a sked
knows that the other station is active, i.e., he may know
something we don't. I think the skeds requester also has a
responsibility to research the station he is requesting a sked
with, and not request skeds with stations he knows nothing about.
* Another issue of discussion was the so called "weakie window" -
see KB2AH's comments on 1296. It was observed that on 70 cm the
freq from .030 to .040 are supposed to be reserved for low power
stations. WB5LUA observes that this rule appears to be observed
except during contests... when un-QRM'd spectrum becomes scarce
and it appears that all rules and gentlemens agreements are
ignored. Personally I believe a single small station calling
frequency will be more effective than the current frequency band
* Please keep the news and technical material coming. E-mail is
now the preferred way to submit information. I will be looking for
you all off the Moon during the Aug SW.
