The last ATP in 2012 greeted me with cold weather and ice/snow on the antennas.

Signals were not as good as normal, furthermore I noticed cross polarization within Europe.

Hi All,

Despite my enthusiasm for the event the weather this close to the

Atlantic prevented activity in April, May and June. I found

conditions poor in July too with only 3 stations in the log. I did

hear a few other bits and pieces IK2DDR? I blew an EHT fuse mid-QSO

with N4GJV but was back on after 15 minutes and fortunately made a new

QSO with him.

Hi All,

First time sending in the log after a long absence from 2m EME. New

system here is 4 x 16ele (by I0JXX) H pol. az/el. (I think this puts

me in category C for the contest). I bottled out about fitting the

vertical elements due to the close proximity of the Atlantic ocean and

regular gales, even with just horizontal elements the array has spent

months tied to the ground for safety.

The radio is IC756/LT2S and Gu78b PA by LZ2US. After getting great

echos the previous day I decided to have a crack at the activity

event. I found conditions pretty good hearing my own echos throughout

the day and working everyone I heard.

My March ATP effort was a not exactly a resounding success, thanks to a Murphy visit! I heard nil, during the first 1 hour, of the event. Cloud cover prevented visual antenna array aiming confirmation, and mental dysfunction, etc., prevented me from immediately learning that my moon tracking data was erroneous. After correcting the tracking problem, I was happy to log 2 QSOs.

However, my happiness was very short lived, as my receive system failed only a few minutes after I completed the second QSO!!

This was an interesting event as I was hearing some very strong signals during the

first pass but mediocre signal strengths during the second pass. Normally I see the opposite here

due to my tree blockage in the eastern window on moonrise. Very nice to see Tim G4LOH on

CW EME with a fantastic signal!

G'day all 2m CW EME operators

I participated in the Feb ATP. Conditions were not favorable.

Only one common moon window (1st leg)

Nil QSO, but heard strongly YO2AMU and called him but Nil QSO.

Temp inside the shack at the time of the ATP was 36C, Very Hot.

Oh the joys of VK Summers.

Anyhow we try again next month ATP.

Hope to work someone then.

Hi all,

Winter makes always problems in Northern areas but tis time even in

temperate zones the wintwr was hard.

As I see, signals were very weak except DK3EE and DK3NG.

A courious thing ist that some stations appears vor a very limited time

and working the same correspondents from EU.

When I made an attempt to call tehm ,the answer is missing. Or,my

Ciao,

Thank you one more time for your and Dubus effort, organizing the monthly ATP.

Regarding my January 2012 log, it's a bit poor. I was active 2 full hours on 1st window

and about one on 2nd.

On 1st I found bad conditions (one way) in most of the time and on second I was on

for a too short time to express any comment.

Anyway, although a very poor activity, I was very happy to make some CW qrm on

the Moon, over to work some good friend.

Greeting to all CW EME fans from Down-under. Welcome to another year.

It is great to have these ATP's. Not only does it populate the low

end of the band, it also assists those trying to improve their CW and

their station.

Was QRV for this months ATP. But only in first window, as no common

moon for the second window.

Conditions were not that good. I could hear the following stations:

OK1MS, OZ1HNE, DK3NG, IK2DDR and UA3PTW

Called OZ1HNE for about an hour and OK1MS for about 40 min. No QSO's

took place.

But hey I practiced my receiving of EME CW (does not happen every day

that I have this ability).

I had a sked with Jo DK3NG prior to the ATP first session start, but

one way conditions. As well as the previous days sked with him. I

have also been having multiple sked with Marshall K5QE, but once again

one way conditions. Being able to hear both these stations and not

the other way around. I was doubting my TX.

But the day after the ATP I was sucessful in working JH0WJF. So not

all lost. Must have just been conditions, hey this is not 20m we are

talking about.

Look forward to the next ATP and GL to everyone else.

Hi EME'ers

I was QRV in both parts of the first 144MHz ATP 2012 and found conditions not very

good with signals and own echoes down from "normal" and deep QSB (Aurora a few

days ago ???). I worked the following 12 stations:

Conditions seemed to be quite poor, during the nearly 3 hours of the January ATP, that I was QRV. Signals were sub par, as would be expected with the moon in a near apogee position. Faraday rotation was unfavorable, and appeared to shift only very slowly. Horizontally polarized European stations were heard only during the first minutes, and during the very last minutes, of the ATP, with a void during the remaining 2.5 hours. Only the "other end" of QSOs involving these horizontally polarized stations, were heard, during that ~ 2.5 hour time period.

Many thanks to all for their participation!

than others years, but i have done my best.

With coming new year i wish that ATP is confirmed.

Dear Peter,

In the first leg conditions were very bad. Heard only OK1MS , calling him but because of the qsb I heard only parts from OK1MS call and "k" but never my call.So we did not finish the qso. Second leg we did it very easy. I found activity very weak, maybe the contesters were too tyred after the "big" ARRL participation. Glad to hear again IK2DDR. I couldn't decode one or two stations calling me. Heard always my call and k but never the other side call.

CU next year! I wish a Merry Christmas and HNY 2013!

G'day

I was QRV during the first leg of the Dec ATP. No moon during the second leg.

Conditions were not good. Degredation was a little high, QSB, QRM and

Faraday were all playing their part.

I QSO'd with no-one. But it was a great experience, and aided in my

CW decoding ability.

I heard OK1MS and also OZ1HNE. I called them both but no QSO took place.

We had a bush fire that was burning at the time. The fire was about

2km away. We had strong winds, luckily the winds were blowing the

fire away from the QTH. But suffered from QRM due to the number of

appliances (fire trucks) and their motor driven pumping stations.

I guess the QSO success I had during the ARRL Contest (7) made up for

the result in this ATP.

I hope everyone has a safe and a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

Hope 2012 provides you with many CW QSO's and rare DX.

I cannot wait until the ATP kicks off in 2012.

Take care and enjoy the Moon.

Hi all,

My activity report follows;

Conditions seemed to be poor, during the December 2M ATP. Signals were weak, and were subject to abrupt disappearance. (rapid Faraday rotation?).

I also experienced an antenna aiming problem, caused by a "cockpit error", that caused me to essentially miss the first 40 minutes, of the ATP.

Hi All!

I experienced a very close lightning strike, several weeks ago, that severely damaged a tree, located only ~ 35M from the corner of my house, and approximately the same distance, from my 2M EME array. I did not have an opportunity to test my system, prior to the ATP, and I was pleasantly surprised that everything actually survived!

I was very pleased to hear a very good level of activity, during my ATP moon window. I only regret that polarization issues, or whatever, prevented me from putting more of the "heard" stations in my log!

G'day to you and all other 2m CW EME followers.

1st WINDOW.

Had family commitment in the morning and so did not arrive home until

0345utc. At the close of the first window the noise started to get

stonger. At 8 deg elevation had S5 noise. The local time was 1500

and being Saturday everyone was watching sports on TV and so getting

lots of local noise. I turned off at 0530 utc.

But had success with one QSO. Could hear OZ1HNE calling CQ on .052,

started calling him at 0400utc. Had some QRZ's but he was working

other stations. At 0424utc could make out some of my call, due to

QSB. Eventually finished QSO at 0440utc.

Could see signals on .048 and .053, but no full decode. Sorry Peter,

I missed you.

Peter

Participated in the July ATP. First leg only, second leg was no common moon.

Well conditions were very variable. QSB, Faraday, you name it.

But despite the poor conditions (dgrd at -4.5) I did see (SpecJT) a

number of stations (5). Most signals were strong enough for a

character or two to be decoded every period or so.

I could clearly decode OZ1HNE (at some stages without filtering) on

052 and also OK1MS on 048. Called both but Nil QSO

Traces seen but no full decodes were on 045, 053 and 054.

Saw and heard OK1MS tuning up (testing - sending dashes) at the

begining of the ATP period.

Coinditions went down about an hour into the ATP and picked up towards

the close, just as the local noise was picking up due to my elevation

approaching the horizon. It was Sunday Morning here and everyone

turning on their TV's to catch up on the news.

So no points this time, always next time.

I welcome any skeds.

Thanks and

I have now added vertical polarisation to the 2X14 EL

Heard today in the last hours

OZ1HNE

YO2AMU

OK1MS

I had only weak own echo and always in the opposite polarisation compared to

what i was transmitting in. I hope the weak own echo had to do with the 4,5

dB degradation we are seing today.

Will try again next time!

Hi Peter!

Conditions, during the 2M ATP, were also only fair. I regret that I did not hear your 2M signals, Peter!

Overall, I did not hear much activity, but I was pleased to hear SM7WSJ, with a good signal. Unfortunately, I was unable to muster a QSO, with Hakan.

Hi EME'ers,

I was QRV in both parts of the June DUBUS CW EME Event, and found

condition fair but very low activity due to the summer and holliday time

I guess. I worked the folowing 4 stations on random:

Hello Peter and All,

My friend Mike SV8GKE and myself took part on both legs of the 1st May 2m cw EME ATP.

Conditions were very poor here in SV land. We managed only one complete QSO with Jorgen OZ1HNE during the first leg of the ATP. We also copied Doru YO2AMU and Stan OK1MS during the second leg but with difficulty due to electric noice from nearby powerlines.

Despite the poor result, we really enjoyed it.

Hi EME'ers

I was QRV in both parts of the May ATP Event and found AGAIN very poor
conditions and from time to time a challange to copy own echoes. As already
said here in comments from 2CEW "when will this end" I am sure the good
conditions will be back very soon again (-: and I already wait for the next
June ATP. I worked the following stations on random:

Hi Peter!

Many thanks to you and DUBUS, for your efforts, and to all of the participants, for another great round of CW EME fun!

Conditions seemed to be substantially better, than they were in April. In fact, I believe that signals were often quite good, at times, considering the fact that the moon was nearly at apogee.

Hi Peter!

I found that conditions appeared be very poor, during the April ATP, and either the

activity was very low, or I was unable to hear it. There seemed to be little change

in Faraday rotation, during the 2 hour period, that I was QRV, as my echoes were weak,

but consistent, throughout the period.

These were the worst conditions I have seen since we started

rather easily but I did not even get a QRZ, despite trying both

Heard Stan OK1MS at about 429. With many calls to him.

Lots of QSB during the session.

Hi Peter,

Thank you very much for the very easy and nice EME QSO. It was a pleasure for me to work you so easy .I was working only in the first part beacuse in the second leg, for an hour, I was not able to hear other stations.

In the first leg,the wind was very strong and in other part of Romania big damages were done.

Coming out to see the antenna behavior during the strong wind , I have seen four "bananas"due the high winds , which needs corrections fo AZ. The "pendulum" from EL was balancing all the time making hard to found the real glide value of elevation.

Except SV1BTR,OZ1HNE "beacons" , it was very easy to make QSO to the other stations!

For example DK3NG (529),I3EVK (529),F1FLA (up to 539), also LZ1DP , strong on the Moon and weak tropo.

CU in DUBUS / REF International EME Contest 2m section from March.

Hi Peter and all other fellow 2M EME enthusiasts!

When I attempted to be QRV, for the ATP, I discovered that my elevation indicating device (old synchro motors) had failed. A troubleshooting effort revealed that a proper repair effort would cause me to miss the remainder of the ATP.

Fortunately, the sky was clear, allowing me to improvise by aiming the array visually. Thus I proceeded to "guesstimate" the required elevation motor run time, then run through my house, and across my back yard, to view the results, by sighting along one of the antenna booms. This procedure was repeated every 15 minutes or so, allowing me to keep the array pointed within ~ 4 or 5 degrees of the moon, most of the time.

Conditions were fair. One way propagation was very evident, during the earlier portion, of the ATP, but this situation improved after ~ 2130Z.

Hi Peter and All Moonbouncers.

I found condition fair,good WX quite all the time except second leg when starts to drizzle. Despite of some minor problems with the switcing the EME line in TX mode ,all was OK.

Nice to see that the number of the participants are higher showing that the target of this monthly contest ,CW activity increase, is real. For me is a real pleasure to participate

in a such a contest.Waiting in the spring,to the REF - DUBUS where ,I hope, to see many stations which during ATP, are "dormant".

Hi Peter and other fellow 2M EME enthusiasts!

I regret that you were not able to be QRV, Peter. I certainly hope that you will be able to be QRV in February.

Unfortunately, a non radio issue plus power supply problems caused me to most of the first hour, of the ATP. When I was able to be QRV, at 2155Z, I found conditions to initially be rather good. However, conditions soon began a steady decline, during the two remaining hours, of the ATP. I suspect that I may have missed the very best conditions, prior to 2200Z.

Hi All,

Was QRV too,

Worked the following stations

SV1BTR

OZ1HNE

OK1MS

YO2AMU

UA3PTW

5 QSO x 10p x 5 mult = 250p

Sometimes it was hard to find out in which period a station was.. A little

bit procedure wouldn't be wrong... To stick to odd or even minutes or at

least END at a full minute isn't too hard is it ??

It was big fun digging signals out of the noise, Had good own echo's nearly

all the time so very low faraday it seems. Calling CQ did NOT pay off I

called CQ for a while but NO takers. I prefer full random operation so did

not make any announcement before the contest, not even that I would be QRV..

73! And who know, next time I'm the one calling you.

Hi EME'ers

I was QRV in both parts of the first DUBUS CW EME Event 2011 and found

conditions in the first part very much up and down with deep QSP. In most

of the second part I had heavy rain with a lot of static noise, so from time to

time not possible to hear even strong signals and many QRZ from me.

Very good activity and looks very very good for the coming CW EME Events.

I would like to thanks the team behind this DUBUS CW EME Event for

arranging this great activity.

I worked 20 stations on random including 1 new initial:

YO2AMU, I3EVK, LZ1DP, IK2DDR, DK3NG, DK3EE, DL5MAE, SV1OAA,

OK1MS, OZ4MM, PA5MS, SV1BTR, DF1CF, SV3AAF, K9MRI, IK1FJI,

W3TWX, YO3DDZ #, KB8RQ, F1FLA.

20 QSO x 10p x 19 mult = 3800p

Thanks to all for the QSO's, and I look very much forward to more fun in the

next Events.

Best 73, OZ1HNE Jorgen

Hello Peter and All,

Again i very much enjoyed my participation in this fine January 2011 ATP on 2m CW EME.

I was QRV during both legs of the ATP. During the first leg, i found conditions here to be better than usual. I could hear several stations calling CQ but due the usual high QRM and QRN I could not get all their callsigns. At the end of the first leg and after 4 QSOs I was very optimistic. But during the second leg i found conditions to be quite poor here with especially high QRN up to S9 sometimes, so no further QSOs were established unfortunately.

This is my log:

Hello Peter,

this time i was active on both legs of this january ATP. During 1st i found

very bad conditions and i worked only 3 stations respect the 9 that i heard.

I spent 1 hour calling JH0WJF, with no results. On 2nd conditions were much

better on my side and i had very strong own echoes during my QSOs with

OK1MS,K9MRI,DK3NG,W3TWX and KB8RQ.

Very happy to work 4 stations from USA. Thank you guys.Very strange

conditions during my qso with Gary, KB8RQ. I spent 2 periods before to copy

his callsign, due the distortion (libration???)Let me say that is really

fantastic to work these guys, today, like 20 years ago, when i started my

eme activity. (real fun)

See the attached log, but before let me send to you and all the Dubus staff,

my thanks for the effort to propose also for 2011, the ATP. VERY

APPRECIATED. THANKS.

Excellent 2m cw fun & activity from EU and also great to see JA presence on

the first 3 hours pass of ATP (activity time period) of January.

Conditions were mixed, but first 2 hours all EU stations were coming in V

pol. Quite deep qsb throughout.

Worked on random 17 stations including new initials, namely the following

fine operators:

YO2AMU DK3NG DL5MAE F9HS DK3EE LZ1DP IK2DDR I3EVK YO3DDZ YO5AVN

JE1TNL PA5MS OZ1HNE OZ4MM DF1CF SV1OAA SV3AAF. I missed at least 2-3

stations with very weak signals as conditions did not help much.

Hi Peter and All,

Thank you very much for the last QSO's of 2010. Really fun! Conditions excellent but very low activity from EU and other continents. Maybe for the Northern Hemisphere , the winter is hard and some antennas are frozen.Heard quite all the time my own echoes. The new HM PA was working without problems in his parameters after some improvements to stop the power drift.

I wish to All A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year 2011 !!!

Outside ATP times, on sked, I worked IK2DDR - FB Franco, tnx alot. Also copied DK3NG and VE1KG but no QSO was established.

As this was my start up year of EME operation, I feel that I have to express my tnx to certain people without whom i could not have started anything:

A very big tnx and top credit to Jimmy SV1BTR for his unstoppable support and advice and for the hundreds of hours that he spent trying to teach me. Jimmy has an unlimited passion and drive for CW EME and I owe him my presence in this beautiful mode ( he also has a big stomach that can take all my questions and mistakes ... hi hi). I also want to sent special tnx to Jorgen OZ1HNE, Chris SP7DCS, Petros SV3AAF and Popa YU7EF. Everyone of them has helped or inspired me is some special way.

I wish to all of you Merry Xmass and a very Happy and Healthy New Year,

See you all in January.

easons Greetings Mooners Happy to be qrv in 2m December activity time period (ATP) sponsored by DUBUS. I managed to be on for only half the time of the two 3 hour passes. 2 hours in first one as I had another commitment, and just 1 hour in second pass due to S-7 QRN from 22KV lines, even at 35 degrees elevation...

Propagation conditions were not good at all in first 90 minutes of moonrise pass, with very deep, slow QSB in both polarities. Echoes at qsb minimums were down up to 12db from their usual strength. As time passed by, things became suddenly better, and next day on Sunday conditions were average and certainly more stable. As previously reported, had the big pleasure to work qrp station VK5APN on sked on Sunday for his 1st 2m cw eme qso. I am sure Wayne will become a regular fine cw eme operator in the future.

During the 2m ATP lots of fun for the limited time i was on. Logged the following 13 QSOs in cw random:

I was qrv both legs..but in the first very hight noise due power line...so i

heard only the strongest stations.

I heard and called VE1KG, but I received only QRZ? in response. The only Europeon stations heard or worked, during the first 2.5 hours, of the ATP, were known to have switchable polarization.

Polarization alignment, with the fixed horizontally polarized Europeon stations, did not occur until the arrival of the very last minutes, of the ATP. OK1MS was the only such station heard or contacted. Thanks for staying around, Stan!

To all others (DL2HWA, IK1FJI, YO2AMU, IK2DDR), for the umpteenth time, I had yet another opportunity to deeply regret that I did not erect my array, with the antennas vertically polarized! I hope to "CU" in January!

EME in the middle of winter is always a gamble for me. This time I was able to be on,

the snow and ice was not so bad as in November. Interesting conditions, Europe cross polarized

for me most all the time. Very strong signals from NA in the second pass, a big change in

conditions compared to the first pass.

I am very glad I participated in the ATP of November on 2m cw eme. I worked on random Jorgen OZ1HNE and Jimmy SV1BTR. Both had booming singals here in SV land. Towards the end of the ATP I heard YO2AMU but by the time i managed to understand his callsign, the ATP time ended and he stopped.

 

2 QSO x 10p x 2 mult = 40p

 

Next day, I completed a cw qso with Peter OZ1LPR on sked outside ATP times.

Despite the bad conditions i really enjoyed it and i am looking forward to the next ATP. I will be moving my EME QTH to a QRM-free location outside Athens since i am having big RX problems here in city.

I hope i can manage to be ready for December ATP.

PS. I attach my current antenna picture and commit that the next one will not only work well but will also look better..hi hi

 

 

YO2AMU

After a long silence I am active again in our EME community contests! In January 2010 I lost my old 2xGU74 PA becaus of PS and now I tested my new

GU78b with good results except the power drift which I must fix.

I was very glad to work again my old EME friends despite of extremly bad condition on my side!A lot of QRM and QRM made by allarm systems

working in the radioamateur band of 144 MHz against the communications laws.

SV1BTR Jimmy, thanks for the QSO. Heard and called some more stations but found condx poor this afternoon.

Was going QRT after 1,5 hours as gas finished (heating my shack with gas) and was getting very cold in my shack (0 degrees and frozen toes...)

Thats the reason why not beeing QRV in the 2nd leg.

Will buy a new bottle of gas next week...

Greetings,

Many thanks to all, for the activity, and fb QSOs!

Unfortunately, I missed the first 30 minutes of the ATP, due to a mental failure! Conditions seemed to be very poor, but did seem to improve slightly, during the latter portion of the ATP

QSOs were logged with SV1BTR, OZ1HNE, K9DX, SM2CEW and IK1FJI.

5 QSO x 10p x 5 mult = 250p

K5QE, YO2AMU, and DL2HWA were heard and called, without success.

I will be looking forward to the December 19 ATP! I hope that conditions will be better.

Good morning folks!

I heard 2 stations & worked 2 stations. It took me 20 minutes to work SV1BTR Jimmy which did not augur well for the rest of the nite. Worked Jorgen OZ1HNE. Now Jorgen was very consistant for a long time. Heard John K9DX but did not work him. I was locked out from Europe because i heard Jimmy working stations consistently & i could not hear those stations.

2 QSO x 10p x 2 mult = 40p

Also i could not hear my echos which is VERY unusual for me running 1600 watts CW to 4x5WL.I called CQ`until i was blue in the face, went out to see if the array was still up saw a bright moon & was right on it. My camera indicated that in the shack.

Anyway quit at 01:45z poured myself a scotch & then went to bed. Was not in the first leg no moon available during the time slot. You know what!!! i still had fun!!!!!

Serge VE1KG

 

K2TXB

Well guys I tried - I really did. I copied OZ1HNE, SV1BTR, and IK2FJI all

quite well but could not get a response from any. I tried the longest and

hardest with you, Jimmy, but the best I could get was a few QRZ's. I had

the amp turned all the way up and your signal was very Q5 most of the time.

Running more power than me Jimmy?

I have rotatable polarization by turning the Yagis, and I tried TX at all

polarizations - 90, 45, 0, -30 degrees and nothing gave me any better

results, except that I did not get any QRZ from you when TX'ing at 90 deg

pol. All stations were received at 90 deg (vertical pol). At times I could

copy Jimmy at all polarization from zero to 90 degrees, without much signal

change, so I guess signals were somewhat depolarized.

Anyway after a couple hours I gave up and went back to the JT portion of the

band where I can make contacts much easier and faster.

Sorry - 73, Russ K2TXB - FN20mb, 2 x 16el, 8877, TS-2000x and SDR-1Q.

 

DL7HR

Hi EME CW folks,

after several months of station upgrading, mainly 4 Yagis into 9 elem. YU7EF, I was hardly encouraged to start within the CW ATP this weekend.

But, as others already reported, the moon conditions where really bad.

High DEG., long-term QSB, mis-polarisation, etc.

I heard in both legs totally 4 stns and could reach only Jimmy SV1BTR.

1 QSO x 10p x 1 mult = 10p

The others heard are: OZ1HNE, OK1MS (may be tropo?),IK1FJI, but could not reach them.

Due to the fact, that most others had also severe difficulties for QSO's, I still hope that my stn-improvement efforts will show the expected, better results in future. HI

Till next DUBUS ATP

SM2CEW

Very poor results this time, my antennas were iced up and showing a very high SWR.

I could only transmit on my vertical elements. I think conditions were not good either

so my degraded antenna was not the only reason for the low turnout on this side.

Hi Peter!

Thank you very much for the fb ATP EME QSOs!

I was able to increase my transmitter power, a bit, prior to the 28 August ATP.

I did observe and enjoy an improvement, in my success rate, compared to that achieved

during recent activity periods. However, I have no way of knowing whether the power

increase was responsible, for the improved results, or if, perhaps, I experienced

better luck with polarity alignment!

Thanks to all, for the very enjoyable QSOs!

I was QRV for ~2 hours, and found conditions to be similar to those that I observed in July. Once again, I could hear my echoes well enough, but they apparently weren't being heard well, in the horizontal plane, in Europe. I am becoming thoroughly convinced that I should have erected my antennas, vertically polarized! If I decide to make a polarity change, I will definetely await the arrival of much cooler wx!

I was QRV for ~2 hours, during the July activity period. Signals were weak, much of the time, but occasionally of respectable strength. The considerable QSB, noted on the few signals heard, was apparently not entirely the result of the transmitt polarity being switched (by stations equipped to do that), as I noted this phenomena on my own echoes, and also on the signal from OK1MS.

Both SM2CEW and OZ1HNE (many thanks to both for their comments!) reported that my signals were being heard at a vertical polarization, which probably explains my lack of success, with the several fixed horizontal polarity Europeon stations, that were heard.

Hi all,

To me conditions were 'medium' during the 2nd window on Saturday. NA were

vertical with me but good signals. European stations were horizontal here, but they were not

peaking as strong as they normally are. My echoes were not strong. I worked the following stations:

Hello Peter and all cw emer's I was qrv during the may dubus activity....

In the first slot and part of the second i found very weak signals and weak echo time to time, so i put an eye to the antennas and found something wrong in my elevation readout.With the help of my son i found that the array was abt 14 degrees out.

I recalibrate the sistem and the signals went out very well.....unfortunatly too late !!! HI.

Hi all!

I was not expecting good conditions, during the May ATP, considering the 500+ degrees sky temperature, plus the fact that a new moon had occurred, during the previous day. Therefore, I wasn't totally surprised when I heard no signals, could not hear my own echoes, and heard no replies to my CQs.

However, when I did a quick aural check, for sun noise, and heard nil, I finially realized that Murphy had visited my QTH, once again, and that I had a receive problem! I had previously experienced this problem, at least once before, but my receiver returned to "life", before I could locate the cause, of the problem.

This time, however, I was able to determine that my isolation relay was defective. By the time that I found a replacement relay, and exchanged it for the defective one, only ~1 hour of the ATP remained.

Conditions now sounded quite good! I apologize profusely to those that may have attempted to reply to my CQs, while my receive system was defunct! Please try again, in July!

My Murphy abbreviated log follows;

I was QRV during the entire 3 hour ATP, but was apparently "locked out" polarity wise. I heard OK1MS very weakly, until approximately 1900Z, when his signal became progressively stronger, as the polarity alignment apparently improved.

My calls, to him, were unsuccessful, however, so the polarity situation seemed to also be non-reciprocal. I called CQ, for a while, on ~144.049 Mhz. and heard 2 weak stations, at 1704Z, that were transmitting simultaneously, possibly in response to my CQ. They were zero beat with one another, however, and I couldn't copy either station! My own echoes were very weak, at the beginning of the ATP, but came up quite fb, during the mid portion of the event, so I don't believe that my system is totally kaput.

 

I hope for much better results, in May!

I had the pleasure to be on in the second pas but did not get any good

result. I couls copy my echo from time to time but difficult to get the

attention from stations calling CQ.

Worked OZ1HNE who as always have a good signal and heard OK1MS and F0CXO

also with strong signals. I did after a while QSY to listen on Arebico on

Again rather poor conditions during the two periods. I was completing most QSO's cross polarized, receiving horizontal and transmitting vertica. Still, signals peaking really well. I think that the evening pass was seeing a lot of competition from the very interesting KP4AO 432 MHz operation from the 1000' Arecibo radio telescope.

Hi EME ers

I was QRV in both parts of the first DUBUS CW EME Event 2010

and found some of the worst EME conditions I ever seen. All signals

sounded like a 6dB attenuator was mounted in my RX line.

I look very much forward to our next Event in Februar.

I worked the following 12 QSO s on random and heard K9MRI,

Very low activity. The same stations.Conditions poor and a lot of noise came from east.Echoes very weak and rare in the first leg. I did not hear other station except the qso's from my log.The elevation system refused to do sometimes the job.I forgot to grease the actuator for the winter and it was moving only with the hep of God. It was cold , abt -6 C and cloudy in east direction.

But , I enjoyed this contest working my old friends with pleasure as always!

CU next time in February!

HNY to all!

Thanks for FB CW EME QSO. Here is my log for January 23 2010 event. Strange conditions indeed, very strong signals from Italy but faint from anywhere else.YO2AMU, normally very strong, was barely audible. Very few stations on the air, not heard any JA in the morning. Called by DK3NG, but i was not able to get his call, only a faint trace. Called F1FLA, 549, many times but no reply, One way conditions most of the time. Missing many EME friends usually active in the event,

Poor EU-EU in the evening, average EU-NA but no stations QRV, only Joe popped up for just a few minutes.

Let us hope for wider participation in next event. Let us keep CW EME alive !

The Japanese calendar is "Dai-kan" now.

It says the coldest time in one year.

However, it rains not snow, and it is a state of the warming.

The condition was good first, but helped with the profit of the

electric power company for remaining one hour.

There was faraday and QSB.

Also been on the higher bands from time to time, QSB was also present there excepting 13cm where echoes were unbeatable - no QSB but vy little traffic.

Just some comments about conditions for november 2m Event.

Conditions fair to good - echoes all the time. A number of ten QSO's in the first Moon-pass and only one in the second(LA8YB). The interferrence with a terrestrial

CW contest make me to give-up after 1 hour of the second Moon-pass. Strong stations from HA , YU , 9A ,S5 make the EME band useless! We had also heavy rain

with all the noises derived frim a wet electrical network environement. Low activity and also some operators without patience. If they did not have a QSO after first call, they give - up! I remember that sometimes I stayed over an hour for a QSO! I finished the November Event with a number of 11 QSO x 11 Mult for 4 hours of work.

The presence of stations from USA was just symbolyc and for a very short time.No time for a QSO.

Worked a new one as RZ4HF - hope it was not a mistake - with very nice signals.

Ciao Peter (SM2CEW) and all,

thank you one more time for so nice job, proposing us the DUBUS 2m CW eme

activity event.

The last activity event of 2009 is gone and we are preparing for your new

proposals.

Yesterday i found an extremely good activity, calculating all the pro and

contra (SHF ARRL EME CONTEST and MMC terrestrial contest), on 1st window,

when i was active for full time without problems. On 2nd window, i was

active for about 1 and 1 half an hour, due too tired to stay on and lot of

difficulties due the local terrestrial MMC contest. There i worked the only

station heard, over someone of those worked in the morning.

Anyway is really a pleasure and pure fun. Many thanks to Joe K9MRI, always

present from USA and active by many years, with the same spirit.

He is one of my 1st contacts on 1991. I heard for a short period also K9DX.

Looking the activity on the others CW contests, like the Marconi Memorial

for 2 m or the others on HF, i can't really understand a so large absence of

USA stations, when i know that there is a big number of capable stations and

operators.

I wish to hear some good news from someone from there that will try the

maximum of the satisfaction using the way that permits us to maintain the

operator, as the 1st important part in one station.

Hi EME ers

I was QRV in this last DUBUS CW EME Event 2009 and found good activity on the

band. First part I was QRV full time, but in the second part the Marconi Memorial

contest was going on and difficult to find a clear spot, so good long coffee breaks

was possible. I would like to thanks the crew arranging this DUBUS CW EME Event

and I look very much forward to new Events in 2010.

The evening pass was very problematic, conditions had changed dramatically for me and my antennas had ice on them that degraded performance.

All in all, a very good year 2009 for CW EME! Hope to see you all in 2010!

From email reports I hear that many operators were tied up with other

activities this weekend, some even involving annual antenna maintenance

before the fall/winter season. Still, glad to see such good activity.

Conditions were not good at my QTH. Deep QSB, rapid Faraday shifts and

times when echoes were almost non existent. As far as I see it, these type

of conditions often show up in the summer months when we have daytime moon.

 

Next scheduled event is in December as we are now heading into the contest season ARI/ARRL).

with no reply at all.

Looking like 4*9 ( old Tonna design) and 700w is not enougth as I get the same result every Dubus activity. I have plans for 4*3wl Xpol next winter , let's hope it will be better ( but I get my echoes with the 4*9). Maybe I should also add +3db on pwr , I still have my old QBL but is needs some tidying

Here is my log for august DUBUS CW EME Event

Hi EME ers,

I was QRV most of the time in both parts of the August Event and found

good activity with two new stations. In the beginning of first part I had

problems with heavy rain and static noise (again), so I had to TX some QRZ (-

I worked the following 16 QSO s on random

Hi,

I planned to be qrv this weekend on 2m cw eme in Dubus Event and for

some skeds.

Unfortunatelly yesterday after cw sked with NT0V (#323, Dennis had FB

signal) I discovered serious problem with my horizontal rotor.

Pointing is almost impossible and further work would couse risk for

array to fall down. So I needed to lower the antenna safely to the

ground as fast as possible and have to cancel all activities.

I hope to replace rotor before contest season and get fully operational

again.

Good luck to everyone.

Hello,
Thanks a lot for good fun on 2m band. I had to quit 1h earlier becouse
of very strong wind. Many thanks for E77DX team for 2m CW sked and new
dxcc for me in 10min qso.
Congratulations for them for fabulous multi band eme expedition.
Unfortunatelly I could not get on 23cm to work them due to technical
problems.

Ciao,

During this event,i found good activity on 1st window, where i worked 9

stations. Nice to work Petros, SV3AAF, after so long time. Conditions were

very good at the beginning of 2nd window.

At least i worked 12 stations, with 2 US friends (KB8RQ and K9DX).

Many thanks to Gary and John for their presence, over at all the

partecipants. See you all in august event.

Station 4x 9el xpol 500W

Despite my station is much better on receive than 10 years ago, it s seems to me that it s harder to copy signal out of noise now. Noisefloor is dramatically gained. Some directions will give 10db noise above my 50 ohm load ( not even can find cold sky anymore)

Anyway I had a lot of fun and will be on when possible.

Good Day to you all.

I was active for the first leg on the CW activity day.

Heard quite a few signals around LA8,YO2.

What an adrenalin rush to try and pick out the CW call signs from the noise.

Worked Jimmy SV1BTR just after the cut off time. Big signal Jimmy.

I was not active during the second leg as my Moon elevation was very low and

I have a hill in that direction.

I only have QRP at this stage but working on changing that situation at the

moment.

After many emails and SMS contacts I would like to thank Jimmy SV1BTR for

all his advice and guidance to get up and running on CW EME this weekend.

He is truly inspirational and his dedication to CW EME can only be admired.

I will definitely be there for the next CW EME weekend hopefully with a

little more power.

Thank you to all those who organized this event.

Hi Peter and the CW community.

Compared to my last time (May 09) result I improved my score by 300%, that means from 0 QSO's to 3 QSO's this time -HI-

Conditions in the first slot where average, in the first hour of the 2.nd slot really good and in the remaining 2 hrs. absolutely NIL!

Small antenna gain and only H Pol made it difficult for me. I noticed from other stns, that they are mostly using V Pol during the contest.

But it was a big fun to really feel and hear morse signs reflected on the moon rocks and sand (and unfortunately no water!) under contest conditions.

In the meantime, I have also improved my PTT-control to "manually actuated minutes" for easier adaption to the partners "one minute time feelings". -HI-

Wow! It helped!!

Rig 650W at feed, 4x9 el OZ5HF (=Vargarda)

I was aiming moon to check for Onsala SK6OSO activity on 1296.050 and just

by chance during their thunderstorm heard LA8YB calling on 144.055 MHz. A

few calls was followed by QRZ from him, maybe because we haven't been active

on the moon for some time. We use Linrad at LF output of FT-736R and the

coherent detector made armchair copy in loudspeaker, litterally! The single

yagi on 1296 didn't make any detectable signal from SK6OSO though.

Rig is same as SK4AO, we share location also with SL4ZYX.

Hi EME'ers

I was QRV full time in the first part of the July Event and second part was

very difficult because of heavy rain with strong static noise (thanks for

patience and sorry for all my QRZ). I found very good activity with deep

QSB on the signals. I worked the following 17 QSO's on random

Contest Log for July 18 2009.

Found conditions mixed with strong signals from all the stations and some very hard to copy or just chopped calls but

all the time I copied my call and not the call of the station calling me.A lot of regular stations were missing! Maybe there is holiday time and a lot of HAM's are away from the RIG.

Static electricity was present quite all the time , echoes weak or not, or strong sometimes. A lot of time the polarity was reversed.Not much to say about my new antenna!? I'm afraid to think that the old was better(15 el-BVO)! Let's time to decide and contest activity!

Very good conditions in the morning leg, strong signals with little QSB, much harder after 15Z in the afternoon, the band became a noise desert for us.

Thanks for nice QSO's and see you all in next event ! Thanks to Vince IT9CHU that joined me during the CW event. IC706MKIIG 8877 4 X 10 DK7ZB LNA MGF4919G, RX FT1000MP + Transverter + PERSEUS SDR tested for the first time in CW EME.

Despite the FT1000MP beated the SDR in quality, and Spectran BF filter was smoother and more confortable for reception for me, it was nice to see the band full of CW traces in the waterfall and check with the tunable filter of PERSEUS all the signals with a simple mouse "click".

Hello Peter and all,

thank you very much for nice eme activity, during last

Dubus eme event. After april where i was not active due

the annual Italian eme meeting and may when due some football

commitment i was active just in one leg, at least on june i was on

about full time.I have stopped around 1605 U.T.C., due no takers. I found

really good activity if compared with some other month. In the morning i

worked most of my score, with 11 stations in the 1st leg. About all signals

were heard at good/strong level. Unfortunately no Asian or African stations

in my log and only one US (K9DX) was heard and worked.

Anyway it was really pure fun. I wish to work all of you in july event.

Hi EME'ers,

... unfortunately I cannot report any completed contact, therefore I'm surely the 'top looser`' with 0 points, of this - my first participation in a EME-CW - contest. Every begin is rocky, HI.

During the first (early morning) part I heard quite well YO2AMU, SV1BTR, F1FLA, OZ1HNE and others. I tried some QSO's, but with no success. I think, my antenna gain is still too small (HI, a small pistol station 4 x 7 el. H, 750 W). But with 2 of the a.m. stations I had problems with their time disciplines.

One (strong) station didnot take any care of beginning (at .00 at even / odd) and also not of lenght of intervalls (30, 60, 120 sec.), another one had a time delay of 14 sec. So no chance to call/work these in due (agreed/standardized) times.

At the second part of contest sun-noise made any try worthless.

But I hope, next time the things will running better for me.

I'm interested, if other stations did hear me?

73 till next DUBUS CW contest

Hi EME Friends,

Unfortunately some problems with my antenna array made me to loose the time for contest. I was active for about 1/2 hour and able to work only 2 stations( I3EVK,OZ1HNE ) and CWNR -OK1MS.

Never heard I3EVK so loud,working him from the first try.Also,like usually-OZ1HNE and OK1MS(not completed).

Hope to work more of you in the next events.

Peter, you had a very good signal, tnx for new EME contact !

After QSO with Finn, LNA went broken...as usual since 3 Dubus EME events..., and i "completed" the first leg climbing the tower and fixing the LNA...anyway thanks for nice contacts and for fun, it is always a pleasure working CW EME.

Hello Peter,

i'm sorry, but after the april event, where i wasn't active due the Italian

eme Meeting, on may i was active only on 1st window, due my football

commitments. Anyway, i found average conditions with some good signal and

some other that has suffered, i imagine, the local summer noise. I worked

four stations and called without results IT9CJC and RX1AS. I hope to do

better in june. Thank you one more time to you, for our contact and to all

the partecipants for the fun. 73' Francesco, IK2DDR

Nice signals, but plenty of cross polarization for me this time.

My moonrise window will now be somewhat limited due to the heavy foilage on the trees.

But this weekend the effect was limited and I had good results on moonrise. 

I thinks this was my top scrore so far in the CW events. :-))

Special thanks to K5QE for coming on, and also to Dave W5UN who switched from JT65B

to CW when I called him.

Hi All,

I found condx in 2m-DUBUS ACTIVITY rather good. Well, sun was a bit close and noisy but

signals were loud enough to copy easy. Lost a lot of time calling stations without

reply or QRZ? Spent alot of time calling IT9CJC who had very loud sigs but no reaction

from him.

Others called but not copy my sigs were DK3EE, F0CXO and OK1MS. Many

more stations heard.

Unfortunately I could only make it for the 2nd window of the DUBUS ACTIVITY

and then activity was low for the first 2 hours. After 2 hours the band began to fill

slowly.

Here my small log (I think thats 250 points)

26th of April , 1540 utc , OZ1HNE O/O

1555 utc SM2CEW O/O

1735 utc K9DX O/O big pile up!

I think John (K9DX) enjoyed his pile-up as an "rare" US-station...

Cant make it for the next DUBUS event as I am travelling.

Hi Peter

Thanks for the nice CW EME contact, really good signal from you. Better conditions in the morning leg, but with fast and deep fading affecting all EME signals, few stations.
A worse conditions for me in the afternoon, strong Faraday rotation, a problem for me working only Hpol, but more stations active. Heard, called but not worked, YO2AMU, G4ZFJ.
LNA died suddenly at 7:00 Z, then some hours of QRT to get it fixed.


Here my log for this April 26 DUBUS EME event.

7 QSO X 10 points X 7 multipliers = 490

See you in next Dubus, ciao 73 !

Only a short window in eastern VK this time:

0530 - 0730 UTC in the first time slot.

Conditions difficult with gale force winds and occasional

horizontal showers.

Worked: OZ1HNE and SM2CEW.

Called LA8YB many times without any reply.

Also heard good signals from DK3EE.

2 QSO x 10 x 2 mult = 40p

The next DUBUS event on 23 May has an even shorter VK window,

0400 - 0510 UTC, so hardly worth switching on the equipment!

I guess I can understand many EU stations not wanting to be QRV

from, say, 0300, which would obviously suit VK better.

Sorry for missing the first time slot.I was at job until 19.30 LT(16.30 UTC).I found condition fair

and all came with nice signals. A very unplesant noise was wobblering from 144.048 to 144.056 "walking" slowly

up and down without any time rule. I was "forced" to jump between free frequency slots , walking with my signals

where I found free of QRM,place!

Heard with good signals IT9CJC but no answer! Also heard SM2CEW.

Conditions were not good, most signals down from normal in my QTH.
Really glad to work Guy VK2KU through the trees on my moonris,
excellent signals from VK. Missed some of the regulars, heard
Doru YO2AMU many times working other stations but not calling CQ.

I am sorry I missed so many stations due to rain static. Missed the first 1 1/2 hours and then the static would be quiet for a time, build to s9 ... and snap back down. So if you were there during the quiet times we probably worked. Anyway I was pleased with the results in such a short time and with some stations I worked for the first time.

Worked:

DL5MAE

Hi ALL,

Very poor performance of my station (unexpected high SWR: 1,6) and poor

activity (or lets better say low number of CQ-CALLING stations; I think activity was OK) kept my score low.

I heard many stations calling others but never heard them calling CQ themselves.

Others I called but not even got a QRZ (F1FLA, F0CXO, IK1FJI, DK3EE).

The problem of the relativly high SWR might be bad connector or water (?) ?

In the Feb acitvity test everything was OK but since that time we had

plenty of snow and winds...

Heard were IT9CJC, LZ1DP, F0CXO, F1FLA, JH0WJF, DK3EE, SM7GVF,

VK2KU, IK2DDR, IK1FJI.

Only 3 contacts completed:

0844 utc LA8YB O/O

0918 utc YO2AMU O/O

1028 utc OZ1HNE O/O

3 QSO x 10 x 3 = 90 points

I will not be QRV during 2nd slot as I am out of house.

GL everybody and TNX for QSO!

DONT USE CHATROOMS

FOR YOUR QSOs!!!!

Hello Peter and all. I have been active full time on 1st window and a couple

of hours on 2nd.

Worked 9 of the 14 stations that i heard.Usually the number of not worked

stations is not so high, but i think that

someone has suffer some noise due bad weather.

Conditions were not so good as on february and the activity was also a bit

less, respect the

same event.I found good conditions in some moment, during 2nd window.

Unfortunately of 2 US friends,

i worked only K6PF(thanks Bob for your participation,as usual).

Comparative with the last time event , conditions were worst! Looking to my log all the activity was little more than an hour.Welcome Guy, VK2KU, in our Event ! I hope to work you in the near future!A surprise was to hear K5QE with very good signals ! Heard /Called IT9CJC and K6PF after finishing they QSO but no reply! I didn't knew that my qso with IK1FJI (539/539)will be the last in the second slot. I continued to try a qso with K5QE (sometimes peacking up to S-3) and I lost more than an hour calling him without any result. Maybe polarity was changed to vertical because I heard permanently OZ1HNE, F1FLA and...K5QE. All the time in the second time slot I did not hear my echoes. An hour before finish I gave -up and I went to see my favourite TV show. What a big event was in february 7 !!!

Hope to work you all on 27/28 march in the European EME Contest.

Hello Eme friends

i was qrv on the event, but in the morning slot be able to heard someone only at 11:00 gmt, before at my "moonrise abt 20 degrees, heavy rain and statics noise up to S 9+. I have bad idea to call cq anywhere, most of you can think that Valter missed his heard or receive without antennas !!!

I see anymore some traces but no possible heard nothing, so first slot was be able to work only F1FLA when noise go out.....

Second slot much much better, but again shut down before the end due my qrl...:-(((....

This was fun! Good activity, and fair conditions. I had some rime frost on my

antennas for the 1st leg, and could really sense that the array was not performing

as it should. Better the 2nd leg, most of the rime had gone, and the SWR was again

reasonable. Special thanks to K5QE and K9DX for coming on during the 2nd leg, together

with K6PF giving us super signals from NA.

Hi ALL,

After almost 1 year of absence of EME I made a few contacts in the

DUBUS activity weekend. Only Europeans worked, where was JAPAN and

Oceania?

Found condx good. Wkd 10 stations (others heard, i.e. I3EVK, F0CXO, PA0JMV and more).

Got the feeling some contacts were arranged via CHATROOM during the event.

Maybe I am wrong, I just made some "strange observations" when turning my

VFO over the band. I hope DUBUS TESTs will remain pure random in the future.

Hi Peter

Thanks for your call during the Event, you had strong signal !

Just back on EME after 2.5 months stop for antennas mantainance.

Nice the whole weekend, signals not particularly strong but stable and good activity: despite many EME friends often active during the Events are missing in the log, best score ever for us in a Dubus EME event.

13 CW QSO's within the two legs plus others with strong signals during the weekend. Nice to hear CW EME window so crowd !

Missing QSO's with US stations, we had to stop earlier due to an heavvy rain thunderstorm.

Thanks to all for the nice contacts and in particular to PA0JMV Joop, YO2AMU Doru, I3EVK Bruno, and PI9CAM team operated by PE1L Rene, for the nice new inits on CW EME. See you all in the next events.

Very nice activity,good conditions having own echoes all the time. Heard and called OH6CH with excellent signals. Low activity from JA. To have better performance i did some changements regarding the connexion between my TR144 transverter and the IF part as FT920 + switch board filters 400/250 Hz BW.The DSP from my FT920 was very usefull.Finising an EME qso ,a lot of operators does not listen the own frequency and call CQ. Except SM2CEW who pay attention if anybody is calling him!Try to watch up on your frequency! Always somebody is there!!!Nice to have qso with Mario,I1ANP and IT9CJC! Both with very nice signals!

CU in March for another fine Event!Maybe in the next Event we will have the surprise to work Australia

Hello all&.
I haven t been able to join the DUBUS events for almost a year now. QRL during weekends is not so good and missing a lot but I m  working on time management to balance the time spent on QRL, family and radio. So I spent the Saturday evening in my shack working on some projects and the solder iron was smoking. I also made one digital QSO as I wanted to QSO the Dwingeloo dish activated by PE1L. He was also on in CW but was too late for that so that s for a next time. Oeps&.DUBUS event&.second slot&almost forgot.

But turned over the band and heard amazing echo s from Tom, DK3EE, and could not resist to call him, in spite of the also loud tropo. So I worked one QSO:

08/02/2009 00:18 DK3EE           JO41GU  RO       O        2 m.   CW                209

1 QSO x 10 x 1 = 10p


Before I calling Tom, I heard Valter, IK1FJI, with good signals also. Tom had a few calls so I waited for 10 min. or so. After Tom I made one round over the band and heard Stan, OK1MS. Also parts of others callsigns but I decided to go QRT as I had to get up early again.

Here is my log for Februar DUBUS CW EME Event:

Hi EME'ers

I was QRV in both parts of the Event, and enjoyed the very good activity. I found good condition

with nice signals and stabil polarity. I had from time to time heavy rainfall with S9+ QRM, so sorry

for the stations I missed and all my QRZ. We will work next time.

I worked the following stations random:

Some strange polarity issues here, cross pol within Europe, but good signals

and decent echoes here.

Hello Moonbouncers,

Was on last one and a half hour for SWL. (single yagi )

Looked like it was very good activity. it was many traces on the screen i

could not dig out of the noise but still very fun to hunt in real random

style with small antenna.

SM7GVF Good Echo Kjell (have spectran picture)

OZ1HNE three different signals,, tropo, moon, and some other reflection.

OK1MS strong

IK1FJI very strong

YO2AMU strong

SP7DCS strong

Some More

I was looking for 8J1AXA

Sounded like the keying as from G3ZIG in one transmission i found when

tuning the band, (guess i will know)

Thought i heard F0CXO in the end of activity slot but?

This was the end of single yagi operation. Next time with a second antenna

mounted side by side and full power.

Hello 2m EME Friends:

I was QRV for 2 hours on 8 Feb & had VY poor condx. Although the event

started at 2300z on 7 Feb, I didn't hv moonrise until abt 2345z. Had vy

noisy condx, even up to 20 deg EL. Horiz polarity was noisy & vertical pol

was extremely bad & not usuable. Usually, EU comes in vertical fm moonrise

until 15-20 deg EL. On top of noise, had lots of deep QSB. I apologize for

sending so many QRZs. All QSOs were horiz pol on tx & rx. 5 out of 6 QSOs

were on my CQ.

During these 2 hrs, worked 6 stations for 6 multipliers. Here's the

results:

0021z - 0027z DK3EE O/R (sent) / RO (rcv'd)

Hello Peter and all,

here my Dubus 2m eme activity event report.

Unfortunately i was active only on second window, due football commitments.

I found an extremely high activity and very good conditions, with lot of

strong signals.

My qso/rate was really extremely good on 1st hour (23:00-24:00), where i

worked 8 stations.

I'm really sorry to have lost some other good station, maybe active only on

1st window, but at

least i'm really satysfied about my score. Each qso was really pure fun.

I heard for the second month WB2RVX that i wish to work soon, maybe untill

next event.

As told by Wolfgang,DL5MAE, i wish that the event could maintain the "Only

Random status", maybe someone

of us as forgot it.

Thanks to all the worked stations and see you on next event.

Hello 2m EME Friends:

 

After not being QRV for quite awhile due to QRL demands, I was glad to be

QRV for about 2.5 hrs tonite (1/11/09 fm 0330-0600z) during the DUBUS

activity period.  Worked 7 stations on random.  Had vy hi noise level due to

warm dry winds & lots of QSB on most signals so vy pleased to work the

stations that I did.  Fortunately, by 0330z, my EL was >20 deg so that

helped lower the terrestrial noise.  A couple of times I called CQ & seemed

like a pile-up of stations calling me.  Sri I had so much trouble copying

many of them.

 

Here's list of stations worked.  All were horizontal polarity on TX & RX.

 

0333 - 0339z    LA8YB        RO (sent) - O/R (rcv'd).  Vy nice signal

0348 - 0355z    YO2AMU    O/R - RO

0405 - 0412z    SM2CEW    RO - O/R

0436 - 0445z    IK2DDR      RO - O/R

0458 - 0507z    IK1FJI         RO - O/R

0538 - 0543z    DK3EE        RO - O/R

Total score:  7 QSOs x 6 multiplier

 

Tnx for the vy fb QSOs & vy sri for those call signs that I could not copy.

Happy New Year all.

Very weak signals during the first pass, more normal at the second.

Heard W3WTX and K6PF as well, but no QSO.

Hello Peter and all,

the first activity event of new year is gone.

I have had the pleasure to be active on both windows.

On first, at the beginning, i found a big distortion,

on the correspondents signals. After some minutes, conditions

has becomed very good, with strong signals and own echoes.

Is really fantastic to see on my Linrad waterfool,the band between 144.040

and 144.060, with lot of traces and good activity. I know that someone, like

our good friends like, LZ2US,SV1BTR,IK3MAC,SP7DCS,PA3CWN,OZ1HNE,K9MRI

(excuse me if

i'm forgetting someone), has had good reasons to justify the absence.

Someone of them is rebuilding the array, someone is changing qth and Chris,

for

example, always active, has had some antenna problem, due bad weather.

Anyway i'm sure we could hear someone of those good stations, since the

february event.

At least i worked 10 stations on 1st window and 4 stations on 2nd.

Nice to see a couple of US friends in my log. Unfortunately Joe, K9MRI, one

of my 1st qso

in 1991 and always present, during these EVENTS, is in the list of those

guys, not active

due ice on the array. We could hear on february, Joe. Another US station was

heard and called,

WB2RVX on 144.057, unfortunately with bad results. We could work on next

time.

Thank you one more time to Dubus,Peter,Hakan and all those guys that are in

the group of the

organizers.

We are waiting some other newcomer, active on next months.

 

Thanks to all the partecipants and see you again on 2m CW eme.

 

73' Francesco,IK2DDR

Very hard conditions on my side.Because of the cold weather (-12),the elevation works time by time.No preamplifier on the input of my TR144 transverter.Conditions quite good on the first leg but worse on the second.Working from the middle of a big town the noise is present in any direction!

Hello All,

 

I was QRV in both legs of this last Dubus Event in 2008 and

found good signals of IK1FJI and IK2DDR and worked both of

them. Heard very shortly K9MRI who was in qso with Valter,

but was called by Francesco and did not hear him anymore after

this. Also have been calling to Marcello IT9CJC the same time

as Francesco, but obviously Faraday was playing as Marcello

could not hear both of us (or maybe some QRM ? )

I had from time to time loud echoes but very low activity.

In the 2nd leg I only heard Joachim  DK3NG calling CQ , but

could not see and hear his EME trace in Spectran.

About halftime in 2nd leg the sigs came up and when listening to

DK3NG suddenly YO2AMU showed up and at first shot

Doru returned and the qso was rapidly finished. The same with

Stan as OK1MS was very good copy and also was Tom DK3EE

who were worked.    Just before end time I heard Finn LA8YB

calling CQ but condx were strange and had to put some effort

to get his attention. But we succeeded and finished up with a

total of 6 qso's this Event.

Probably the last Event in classB for me, because next week

start to dismantle my 4 yagi array which is for sale.

Anyone interested in 4x9 ele DK7ZB can drop me an email.

I will rebuild and plans will most likely be with 1 yagi in the future

for 2m EME.

Thanks All for the fun and see you back in 2009 but will be

somewhat more challenging !!

I wish Everyone a Merry Xmas and a very happy New Year !!

Hello Peter,

 

My log for December:

 

My call: OZ1HNE

I was only QRV for a very short time in the second part of the December DUBUS CW EME event due to some

Christmas activities. I found very good conditions with great signals from the 3 stations I worked in short time:

 

13/12 2008  1737 UTC.  JR3REX   RO/RO  10p  1 multip.

13/12 2008  1800 UTC.  OK1MS   RO/RO  10p  1 multip.

13/12 2008  1809 UTC.  YO2AMU RO/RO 10p   1 multip.

 

Total: 30p x 3 multip. = 90 points.

 

Thanks to all for the EME QSO's in the DUBUS CW EME event 2008, it was all great fun and I look very much forward

to hear all the CW signals from the moon again in 2009.

I have to thanks all the people behind this fine CW EME event.

 

Merry Christmas and a Healty Happy New Year to you and yours.

We have received a tremendous amount of wet sticky snow during the last 24

hours, so it is impossible for me to come on any band for some EME fun this

weekend. Antennas are unusable.

 

Have fun, use the extreme perigee to the fullest, and don't go too crazy

under the full moon..!

PA3CWNHello all

I was qrv in both legs, but experienced some troubles with my power output.

It seemed that the driver did not function right and so connected the ft100

which gave some less output from the gs35b.

Condx were variable in the first leg with lots of qsb. Time to time strong

signals combined with deep qsb.

I gave CQ only for a short while because of my problems but had a response

from Francesco ! Thanks and nice to work you again :-)

In the second leg I found condx much better and heard LZ1DP with strong

signals. I only got few times QRZ and then LZ1DP dissappeared and not

heard anymore. A pity because it would have been a new init.

I was astonished by the sigs from Valter IK1FJI!! Very strong and nice to

hear the keying from Valter so well.

I also have called K9MRI, who was not that strong and got only QRZ.

By the time I thought I heard my callsign, the power fell down and did

not finish the contact.

I made a total of 8 qsoos in both legs and despite the problems I am

pleased with this result. The array still seems to work right.

I was QSO only for one station so that there was a ham fair in Tokyo on that

day.

Ciao to all.

Unfortunately on last august Dubus 2m cw activity event, i was active

only on 1st window, because on 2nd i was busy with my other hobby

(football coach).Although i like to stay with my team, i'm sorry to have

lost the possibility to work some other of you, this morning. I wish to

work you all again, on one of next days. Thank you very much to all for

nice partecipation. For me is always a pleasure to work you on cw eme.

I was not lucky with LZ1DP that i heard very strong in qso, with

someone, but i wasn't able to find him later in somewhere.

I'm really happy to work my good friend Valter, IK1FJI that is back

with his "old" very strong signal. Congrats Valter.

Greetings gentlemen !

Although this time condx seemed to be worse compared to the previous time I participated in the DUBUS Activity Event, I had the chance to copy partially many stations, although I did not have the chance to establish a QSO with them. Those were IK2DDR, LA8YB, SP7DCS and some others that I did not have sufficient time to acknowledge them and call them back.

It was a great pleasure of mine to work Jorgen OZ1HNE and some minutes afterwards I wkd for the first time IK3MAC, who was very strong - it felt like working a european station on HF.

During the 2nd leg, I wkd Jimmy SV1BTR after many calls since he seemed to have a big pileup so it took a while till I got through.

I did enjoy this Activity Event A LOT and I am looking so much forward to the next one to meet you all !

Till then I wish you a great summer with lots of DX and fun !

Hello all,

what beautiful Activity event. I found a very high activity and about

very good conditions, particularily on 2nd window. I worked a total of

18 stations, but i was very surprised to work this time 4 US friends.

I worked Dave, W5UN on CW, after a very long time. I have had my own

echoes, about on full time and in some moments really strong (539).

Thanks to all. Sorry if have not work someone of you, like Victoria,

SV2KBS. Maybe we could work today. I'll make some other noise on

the Moon.

Thank you one more time to the Dubus organizers for their idea

to setup these Activity Events.

P.s. this week i had the pleasure to have a special guest, here

at my home on july 3. He was OZ4MM, Stig with family. I have worked

him many times on 2m eme, but this was our first meeting.

In these moments we understand how great is our hobby that permits us

to have good friends untill that we know in person.

Hello All,

I was partially qrv in the first window and found condx not really good.

The stations heard were worked and these were only three, but I was

not qrv for the full time.

The second window however I discovered lots of activity

and called Jimmy immediately, but he had a huge pile up, so started

CQ myself and very soon was answered by Chris SP7DCS :-)

I stopped CQ because a nasty whistle started upon my qrg and so

walked around the band. Sigs were good from time to time, but much

fast and deep qsb. I worked some 4 stations more thereafter and

was glad with a total of 8 stations in this Dubus event !

It was very nice to see so much participation from the USA and

have called several, but condx were not ideal between NA and Eu

from here.

Called and heard responding was Franscesco IK2DDR, but sigs

went rapidly down, so could not finish the qso and have searched

the band later on for Francesco, but only few sigs left than.

It took me quite some time to get the callsign out of the noise from

Christian F0CXO although his sigs good were, but every time

the callsign came he went in qsb so was left with a F and knowing

the X, but want to hear the complete callsign.

I also got lack of concentration and had to shake my head a few

times to stay alert. Maybe because the noise level was pretty high

especially at the 2nd window making the background sounding

pretty aggressive which I noticed, makes me tiring listening.

I also called K9DX but got qrz and not heard thereafter.

It was a pleasure to see much activity :-)

I hope to meet you again in next month !

Hi EME'ers

I was only QRV in the first part of July DUBUS CW EME Event on 144 MHz because our local radioclub should be active from a little hill in the VHF Field-Day contest and few things to prepare. I found very stabil polarity but I have never heard so deep QSB on the signals before !!!! Strong signals like 539 could completly disappear and be back again in short time. I am very glad to read in the reports that other stations have seem the same kind of QSB, and not only a local phenomenon (-; Very nice to hear so good activity on the band and thanks to all for the QSO's and one new initial with F5JNX .It was all great fun as always and I look forward to next DUBUS CW EME Event in August.

I worked the following 14 stations on random CW:

Hello to all

During the event i dont found good conditions at all, the signals were up and down with fast qsb...

Heard somethimes my own echo but less strong than usually, I heard PA3CWN very weak, instead of last sunday we had a good qso with very nice signal.I call cq for long time so i missed easy stations to work with no problem Ie W5UN, K9MRI and others.

Anywhere i worked 12 stations with no full time qrv...So seems my 4 short yagi worked quite well.

Hi all

I finally managed to be qrv for only 1.5 hour in the 2nd pass of

July's DUBUS 2m activity event. It was a real pleasure to be qrv on cw

eme random after 2 months of absence abroad, activity from EU & US was

remarkably good:-)

Conditions were challenging propagation wise with mixed polarity, fast

and vy deep qsb.

A family reunion prevented me from being QRV during the 2nd pass. I enjoyed the 1st pass, even though conditions were difficult with slow and deep QSB. I transmitted mostly vertical for the Eu stations to hear me.

Hello 2m EME Friends:

I was only able to be QRV fm 1730 - 1830z today during the DUBUS activity period. Worked 3 stations rather quickly with nice signals but lots of QSB & noise. All were vertical polarity for tx & rx. Here's my short list:

1740-1745z K9DX RO sent, O/R rcv'd, initial #217 (vy gud signal)

1758-1804z SP7DCS O/R sent, RO rcv'd (gud signal)

1806-1812z IK2DDR O/R sent, RO rcv'd (one of the best copies I've had fm Francesco)

30p x 3 mult = 90p

Tried a sked at 1830z with SV2KBS but had hi noise hr & Victoria only had 8-12 degrees EL so lot's of noise thr also. Nil on both sides.

Enjoyed being active agn even for only a short while.

73,

Bob, K6PF

Weather prevented operation in the second period but in the first, using my 10m long yagi at about 18m, I worked IK3MAC with amazing signals from him, 539. I then worked LA8YB again with nice sgnals, which I think is an initial, not sure. I heard and called OZ1HNE. This was on the first ground lobe up to about 6 degrees, on the second lobe at about 12 degrees I heard OZ1HNE again,also F3VS and SP7DCS but too weak to call.

20p x 2 mult = 40p

Thanks for the QSOs and hope to be there next time with the dish which gives me elevation and polarity change.

June Dubus 2m CW event;

I'm still suffering an RX degradation problem. I have checked just about
everything in the system except the antennas (they're 45 feet up). I'm
hoping to get this resolved sometime soon.
I only managed to work W5UN.

I send you my final Dubus 2m cw activity event log, right after the end

of the 1st window, because i could not be active on 2nd, due soccer

commitments (new team presentation).

This morning i found really beautifull and rare conditions from my QTH.

I heard my echoes quite stable and strong as heard just a couple of

times, since i have installed my 4X19LLY array .

This good conditions was confirmed by the common high level of the

signal of the worked/heard stations.

I'm sorry to have not the possibility to be active on 2nd window,

because if conditions are like in the 1st.........

I was qrv in both passes of the Dubus events on Saturday

and found condx not very good. It was not the fact that

signals were no good, but I had Faraday lockout in both

passes for a long time.

In the first pass 2 stations were worked; LA8YB and DK3EE

both with loud signals. Tom amazingly loud with almost no tropo!

I called Chris SP7DCS and hrd him returning, but because of

technical problems at Chris' side, I lost his signals.

At start of the 2nd pass I heard F3VS amazingly loud working

Christian F0CXO, but I could not get the attention on his

CQ thereafter, neither that of Jurgen PE1LWT who was also

calling. It is the 2nd time I experience this with F3VS and do

not have the slightest clou what this can be?

After that I worked immediately Jorgen OZ1HNE with very fine

signals, but after our qso have heard long time nothing except

for the big guns W5UN, LA8YB and my own echo.

Just 20 minutes before end time Sigs came in all together and

I was able to work Chris SP7DCS for compensating the earlier

lost contact.

I worked 5 stations in total and have heard several others, but

not as much as I have heard before. I guess I had an off day

and also my own cq's gave no result, but it was a real pleasure

again and will be qrv next month.

A lot of parasitics moving the S-meter over the S-7 line. Also QRN and heavy rain in this part of EU. Troubles with my PA, only half of power than usually.No echoes quite all the time.Plus a lot of station calling me directly because of a high activity before of simultane terrestrial contests (also YO contest). Working only half of the contest time due the job obligations,no chance to be free! Hi! The strongest stations heard(in order) were: SM2CEW,DK3EE,F1FLA. Heard SV3AAF and PA3CWN.

conditions most of time. Thanks for DF9CY for calling me - I knew you

wanted to look for me, but I could not copy the call - please try next time.

Before second leg I had technical problem with LNA switching so I was

late a bit. Nice surprise was cw initial 308 with W3TWX from Vermont.

Hi EME'ers

I was only QRV in the second window of June DUBUS CW EME activity event on 144MHz because of sea fishing activity in the beautifull and warm weather we had here in OZ. I found good condition and very nice to hear so good activity on the band. Thanks to all for the QSO's and two new initials with OK2POI (thanks for your patience) and YU7XL. It was all great fun as always and I look forward to July DUBUS CW EME event.

Too many EME activities this weekend.. I tried to be active as much as I could but EME DX-expeditions and 70cm activity periods took its toll, so I was not QRV for the 2nd pass. Great signals during the first pass, despite the moon being in the trees for me. Most signals were coming in vertical with me.

Greetings gentlemen !

I unfortunately missed almost the half 1st leg of the event because I was travelling - however since I got home I switched everything on at once and stayed QRV full time.
This time I found things much more difficult compared to the European EME Contest - It was hard for me to find the signals and I managed to establish only two QSOs

03/05  1203  LA8YB     RO/O  
Ed. note Score = 20 x 2 = 40p


Throughout the Activity Event I was using Jurgen's OZ1HNE signals as a beacon - FB Jurgen for your booming signal !
I also easily copied Finn at the 2nd leg. Beautiful signal, fast QSO - Mange takk skal du ha for en hyggelig QSO !
Apart from this I had the chance to partially copy a couple of french stations as well as IK2DDR -I believe- however they faded away before I had the chance to fully acknowledge them and call them back.
Now I am looking forward for more activity and get the most of what I can from my EME setup !

My compliments to all of the participants !!
See you off the Moon !

Hello All,

I was qrv in both legs for almost the full time and found

condx to be good at 1st leg but much qsb on the strong

signals.

The second leg was not that good at my side. Less activity

and much qrm from the neighbourhood gave only 1 qso

more.

I have been calling CQ several times for periods of almost

an hour and Peter returned at my CQ (again :-) ), so calling

CQ helped this day !

The signal from Jorgen was the most constant in both legs

and guess Jorgen switched pol on a regular base.

I had lots of troubles with the signal of Alex which was very

close to a birdie, but was able to copy all the info and very

glad to work Alex from KO40.

I worked these fine 6 stations with UFB operating practice:

and not heard it thereafter. I also saw traces of IT9CJC when

I hope to meet you all and more in next event and GL to all !

A terrible snow storm rolled into Southern Ontario just in time for the
DUBUS event.  I had an S-7 noise level from precipitation during the
complete NA window so it was a complete bust for me. I sat for 3 hours
hoping for a break in the noise but it was not to be.
In the meantime I have also come to the conclusion that my RX system has
suffered some degradation so I am investigating.  Hopefully all will be
well for the next event.

Hello All,

I was qrv in the March Dubus event for one and a half hour in the 1st half and complete second half.

Condx were not the best, but managed to work 7 stations in total.

During this event, i was active full time on 1st slot and just about 1 hour

on 2nd, due some commitment. Anyway i have enjoyed the cw activity and the good new

is that i have worked on random and for the 1st time on eme, the Sicily is.

I worked IT9CJC. It was really a good surprise to hear his call. Never worked him before on tropo or whatever. Marcello has now a team composed, by himself and a

couple of other operators. I wish that some other, following IT9CJC, example, will give us the pleasure to be present to our CW eme events. About the conditions, i found moments with good signals and strong own echo and others with some Faraday rotation.

Here my result in 4 hours of activity:

Hi,

As I wrote yesteday, I was qrv with 15 yagis (one yagi is broken) and

lower power due to bigger SWR.

Yesterday Murphy visit (5h to repair my PA) was not the last one...

After first pass gs35b tube went dead and I had to replace it.

Morover during second pass I had small damage in power supply and lost

some time repair also this issue;)

Anyway I worked following stations on 2m CW random. Condx were difficult

for H pol station.

Hello All,

I was only able to join March 144Mhz Dubus event for a total of two hours. At least during the initial half hour of first window propagation was really poor. There was a propagation improvement during second slot but generally conditions here deteriorated as a whispering FM mode conversation showed up on 050:

- I am now crawling behind the bushes next to the olive tree, watch out dont shoot me.

- Just checked the droppings of the bird, they are still warm, it should be close by.

and on and on. for a long time; I dont think they ever got the bird.

In between this mess I worked the following excellent EMEers that can break through any interference:

SV1BTR, LA8YB, SP7DCS, OK1MS

SV1BTR was qrv for a total of 4.5 hrs in the DUBUS 2m cw eme activity event of March.

Conditions were not good. 4db more noise due to Sun proximity 10 degrees away, especially in 1st pass. All signals and echoes suffering from deep qsb.

Hunters shooting non-stop but i shoot at the moon also, so that makes us colleagues i guess:-)

With my 21.5dbd 2m array despite bad propagation, smallest station worked once more was ON7EH with 12el. and 250w. Michel was coming in 529 on peaks! New initials with IT9CJC and PI9CM, no idea what they are running.

I would like to thank all European & Japanese stations who honored the event and gave me the pleasure to work them!

Result: 18 QSOs, the following fine stations / operators were worked on cw random heavyweight mode:

Back on EME weekend of 15/16 for the European EME Contest (DUBUS & REF) 70cm cw section.

Wednsday going to Italy on qrl, but hopefully coming back Friday night.

My current 8 yagis xpol 70cm array retires after the Contest. In early summer 2008 will be back with 24 yagis xpol.

Hi all,

I was QRV on 144 MHz in February DUBUS CW activity
event. I found poor condition with a lot off iono
disturbancies that made the signal off the moon
band-wider, but I was  very glad to hear the good
activity on the band.
I worked 37 different stations on CW random.
Here the contact list:

Here, as usual my final result, of this february DUBUS 2m CW EME EVENT.

I found an extremely good activity and i appreciate the presence of new

stations, like PE1BTX and OK1KKD. I wish that the number of

partecipants, improves with spring time, since march event.

Conditions, despite the excellent partecipation, were very bad until

last hour of the event,where all signals were very strong .

I had lot of signals on my LINRAD WATERFOOL, but sometimes, although

a big trace, i had really difficults to decode who was.

Anyway, many thanks to all and see you on next march event.

It was the continuation that the condition improved, and became bad.

The explanation of the picture.

2 of the right side are Japanese transmission tube.

7F43R,6F62R(tetrode). The left is 811A.

6F62R is television TX tube. Plate dissipation is 600W

7F43R is phone TX and OSC tube. Plate dissipation is 1000W

There is compatible and can change 6F62R and 7F43R immediately.

7F43R is the disposal product of the Japanese Self-Defense Force

"armed forces".

I use 7F43R for HPA of 144M now.

Score: (5 QSOs) x (10 pts/QSO) x (5 WPX prefixes) = 250

I may not understand the intended scoring formula. At

http://www.sm2cew.com/aw_rules.html I read these conflicting

words:

1. "Your total score for the night is the number of QSOs (with a bonus

score for QSOs with the three rare continents) multiplied by the total

number of callsign prefixes worked."

(Note, tks for pointing this out Joe, corrected now)

 

2. "Each QSO completed scores 10 points"

Aside from the bonuses, is it 1 point per QSO, or 10 points per QSO ?

Is this intended to be a European contest, or a world-wide contest? The

moon was below my horizon for half of the specified contest time in

January. I seem to recall that there was some "adjustment factor" to

take account of this imbalance, last year. I see nothing about it in

the currently posted rules. Have I missed something?

- Joe, K1JT

 

Note. Yes, world wide participation is encouraged, but moon times during these relatively short events (compromises) may not always reflect this. The rules are indeed revised this year to make scoring easier, this means that adjustment factors have been taken out.

 

VA3TO

I rushed home from work on Friday afternoon to participate in the

January 2m CW Dubus event but was disappointed to find exceptionally

poor conditions. I finally completed with SV1BTR after 3 different

attempts and heard no other signals over 2 hours of operating time.

IK3MAC was notably absent.

1 QSO with SV1BTR = 10pts.

First I want to thank the organizers of this monthly Dubus Event and I am very happy with achieving the 1st place in class B for 2007 Dubus Activity Nights.

So with a happy smile I was qrv in both windows but found condx not good.

Friday Night the wind was stronger as expected and the array was swinging in winds up to 7 Bft, which is really the limit for elevating the system. I worked 3 stations and in the second window I still found condx very poor so added only 2 , making a total of 5. I have been calling CQ for a long time above 046 but all I

saw were some traces and copied a F. Later it seemed that Petros was also calling CQ and it might have been callers for SV3AAF I saw. I also heard a station on 042 , later I saw him on 053 who had an unstable signal and low speed CW. I 1st thought

it was OK1MS. But later found Stan with stable sigs on 048, so it must have been another OK1 ?? Also around 045 I identified a signal, but very hard copy

and maybe that was Alex RU1AA.

Condx were that poor that it reminded me at the times of the single GI7 because I had to call the stations for a long time. I only have seen/heard my echoes in the last half hour of the 2nd window Hope condx in Feb. Event will be much better.

Here is my log for the January Event;

Heard only with big tropo but eme trace; was Gerard PE1BTX who was calling Jimmy. Hopefully Gerard is also there in next Events when eme sigs are better , so I can try calling when doppler is high enough, so Spectran can filter the tropo out. But I had a lovely time again and will be on next month again and hope Doru YO2AMU has repaired the damage by then !

Hello MoonBouncers,

Running this years first event with a single yagi on 15dBd did not get me so many QSO in this 3dB degradation.

I managed to work SV1BTR and also found IK2DDR SV3AAF F0CXO OK1MS just by tuning the band with the help of the waterfall on the screen.

I feel anyway quite happy with the result to find some of the stations with no help besides my own station. Some are so strong so i guess they are heard by much smaller stations, but some are not that easy to find on random with a small antenna and this degradation.

It looks like the new preamplifier and all other parts in my station works as they should, so now its only to get those 4 yagis in the air as my goal is to have all up and running until April 12/13.

This is the date when the European EME contest 2008 will be held and i think we all should try to realley be as active as possible in this years contest.

Due the failure of my PA , it is not possible for me to take part at this event. Murphy was visiting my shack and the damage was proportionally with the power!

No time to fix the problem! It happens 15 min before contest. I am very sad!

Hope to work again in february!

Sorry!

It has been a real fun again last year although I have had my

troubles with both equipment and antenna, but finally I am in

a good shape !

Condx have been excellent in the first window and ON4DPX

Kenny made my night in working him for a new initial and new

CW DXCC and nice working Jorgen OZ1HNE for the 1st time random.

Hrd and called were DK3EE and hrd fractions of Noriyuki JH0WJF,

DG5CST and CKR ? (sm2ckr??) were heard in qso with Jimmy.

2nd window was very poor and even Jimmy was weak and Tom DK3EE

had strongest sigs on the band here.

Congrats also to Peter SM2CEW who got me really quickly after I

started CQ and you must have super ears Peter , because I am not

the loudest station with ' only ' 4 x 2.4 wl in these poor condx !!

I want to thank all for this wonderful event and hope to meet you all

in 2008 again. I hope I can participate in all of the events !

Merry Xmas and HNY 2008 for everybody !!!

Condx was bad.

SWR during QRV was high.

The half of 8 Yagi broke down from power splitter when I investigated it and seems to have QRV it with 4yagi later. The temperature of this season became -5 degrees, but kerosene oil rose in price this year,

and the heat of the linear amplifier was the only heating. HiHi.....

The picture take at Nov 25th morning.

Hi!

I haven't been in eme qth since arrl contest and when I went there

before Dubus event I realized that Mr Murphy was doing his job during my

absence;)

Firstly it occured that open wire feed is broken in one place in 2m

array. I spent few hours repairing it and was happy to be ready before

event.

On Friday I checked my station once again just before start of first leg

on 2m. It occured that PTT control for 2m PA is dead. It took my one

hour to repair it, so I was late on the band, but worked 10 stations on

2m in first window.

Condx were excellent for EU-EU path, signals were loud and my echos were

huge. After 2m event I switched to 23cm before moonset, but

unfortunatelly I could not find any one on the band.

On Sathurday I started on 2m again. Condx were poor - Faraday made my

echos barely visible or no echo at all, so I decided to switch to 70cm.

Condx also were not perfect, but I worked 2 stations with my QRP setup,

including I1NDP for new one. Many thanks for Nando for a lot of

patience! After switching back to 2m I made few qsos and then Mr Murphy

arrived once again. Unfortunatelly 12V, 28V power supply used to control

all preamps went dead 30minutes before end of event. I had no chance to

repair it fastly so I decided to go back to home qth and make some xmas

preparations. So, it means I am temporarily qrt on all bands, but I hope

to repair it soon!

Merry Christmas everyone!

2007 is coming to its end and had great fun participating in DUBUS 2m & 70cm cw eme activity events of December.

Having said this, i take the opportunity to thank DUBUS for sponsoring these fine EME monthly events in the last 2 years and for the future to come.

It was really nice and meaningful to meet many friends and exchange Christmas and New Year wishes, during our QSOs.

On 2m activity event i was qrv only in 2nd session, for 2.5 hrs . Worked 17 fine stations & operators on random, namely: OK1MS YO2AMU IK2DDR SM2CKR F9HS I3EVK F0CXO F1FLA JN1CSO SM2CEW DG5CST PA3CWN SP7DCS F5JNX LZ2US ON4DPX JH0WJF.

90% of stations worked were coming in V pol, 1 in H pol, and the rest at 45 degrees. Echoes were weaker than usual, all signals down by about 3-4db also.

A bit after the 2nd session of 2m event worked OK3RM on 70cm cw sked, fast qso, he had a UFB signal.

On 70cm activity event was qrv only in 2nd session for 2 hrs. Worked 10 fine stations & operators on random, namely: SM4IVE G3LTF SM2CEW UA3PTW OZ4MM G4RGK DG1KJG SM3BYA K1RQG W7CI. CWNR with K2UYH.

I hope 2008 finds you in good physical and mental health, with new projects, optimism and maximum pleasure derived from your hard work on EME!

The D44-expedition by DL8YHR and DL8LAQ attracted quite some interest during the August Dubus CW event as they announced some CW activity during the event time slots. Many stations were looking for them, and they made some CW QSOs on CW random.

Thanks guys!!

Hello All,

I was qrv in the August Dubus Activity Night to test

my new PA and see if things have to be tuned.

In the first pass I worked Graziano IK3MAC and called

Tom DK3EE, but signals were not so strong so did

not made a qso. I heard Stan OK1MS just before

working Tom, but did not find anymore Stan after that.

I found not much Activity but was also with my head

at the amp.

After the 1st pass I called CQ for a while in JT65b and was

answerd by Heinz DM2BHG, but could not decode his

eme signals, I think due to the strong tropo interfering

This morning I was qrv for the last half hour and heard

again both Graziano and Tom and after the Dubus Event

I heard Graziano again calling CQ with very loud signals

I called IK3MAC with just 40W and finally I heard

my callsign plus report and soon the qso was complete !!!!

Very nice for just 2.5 kW erp and Superears at Graziano !

Now going to fine tune the amp and hope to place my

LNA in the mast soon to be complete for the Italian

EME contest again.

I was active on both windows, but due a persistent "V" pol. condition,

i had not a good result as i believed, after the Activity Event of July.

I worked 7 stations on 1st window and 2 stations on 2nd, where

i lost lot of time watching the D44TD (144.060) freq.

I found extremely bad conditions, but maybe call bad condition a situation

where the "V" pol, is needed is no more correct. I think that is better

to say that those stations that are operating with a full polarity system,

have had the right advantage.

Except SM2CEW (cross yagis)and IK3MAC (full pol.)all the other stations, big

guns

or not, was heard here much less strong, respect the usual.

Condition-very poor! Heavy rain and QRN plus problems with elevation system

who "refuse" to work in the night time. The noise was very high sometimes

over S-8 so no other stations decoded except who are in my contest log.

Sorry for one or two stations who called me but in bad condition and almost

vertical propagation I was not able to decode the signals.IK3MAC was all the

time very strong ,peaking up to 579!!!

Echoes were weak or not quite all the contest.

About participation-not so good words! Maybe it is sommertime and many are

in holiday.

CU next Event!

I was focusing a lot on the D44TD DX-expedition, so I lost a lot of time in the Dubus event. Unfortunately I never heard the D44, but I understand they made some CW EME contacts, congrats to everyone involved! In the Dubus event I worked

Hello Peter although if i found extremely "strange" conditions, it was

for me the best "activity event" of last few months.

On first window i worked only 2 stations (SV1BTR and SV3AAF and HRD another couple)and found extremely bad conditions, for stations like me, with only the "H" pol.

During second window i found variable conditions, fantastic in some moment and bad in others, but this is eme. At least i worked a total of 14 stations, with 3 USA. Very happy to see that there are more USA stations on cw.Their presence was really very appreciated. Thank you guys.

All,

We had a lot of fun working 2M CW EME in period 2.

We worked 9 stations and heard 2 more.

IK3MAC seemed to have the strongest signals.

Our rebuilt preamp (1.1dB full system) and sequencer worked great.

We were able to measure sun noise of 9.6dB.

Estimate gain at 26.8dBi (that makes us about 24% efficient with a 2 ele Horizontal beam feed below the subreflector)

Heard very nice JT65 signal from EB5EEO, sounded SSB workable. Called on SSB & CW, but no answer.

AD6IW was also active on 1296 at the same time, now with 300W.

Worked G4CCH(SSB) VE6TA(SSB/CW) JA6AHB(CW) WB2BYP(CW)

Some comments about July Event.

Glad to see that the number of EME CW amateurs are increasing! Step by step like in the old fine days.

First time slot was low in activity maybe that the Moon was too low. I need in this moment 15 degrees of elevation to start working.

Second time slot activity was fair and a lot of stations came with signals on the S-meter(SV1BTR 559, IK3MAC 579!!!, DL5MAE 529, IK2DDR 529, SP7DCS 529, LZ2US 549 and later SM2CEW with 539 like in the old times).

Surprise...! Never heard JH2COZ with so nice signals!Also EA3DXU,WA6PY,G4DHF,IK1FJI and SV3AAF.

Heard and called F6FHP with very good signals!

Thank you very much to all participants for the nice moments!

I hope that from August&September two new YO will be with us: YO2II and YO5BIN.

Hello All,

I was only qrv for one hour in the first pass because at

moonrise the array is blocked by the house and heard

Jimmy with good signals. I also saw two other traces

but could not identify the calls in this qso.

I did not make a qso because I have the amp dismanteled

and hope to be in action as soon as possible again with

a GS35b tube.

GL to all and till next time

Hello All,

Very poor weather here in the UK, the wettest June since records began. Local flooding nearby. Friday brought strong winds so I could not be QRV during the 1st Session. I raised the antennas for the 2nd Session and was delighted by the stable conditions and high level of activity. I had to QRT after 3 hours to lower the antennas as the winds increased, again. I worked,

LZ2US, LA8KV#, IK2DDR, IK1FJI, SV1BTR, DL5MAE, SM2CEW, YO2AMU, IK3MAC, SP7DCS, N9JIM#

I heard and called WA6PY, but was unsure of his timing periods. Some really excellent signals this morning. Thanks to all for the FB QSO's

Hello All,

At the start, at keydown a terrible smell was filling

the shack and it seems a fuseholder had been baked

in the HV supply. When repairing I did something

stupid and the whole house was in the dark :-(

Finally repaired and I could work Alex.

In the second half this repeated and again could

repair it, but there must be something wrong.

As the picture says I have to do more 'Oene in action :-)'

But trying to be optimistic and persistance I worked

2 stations and heard a lot more !

10 - 6 - 2007 0206 RU1AA RO O 1p RU1

10 - 6 - 2007 1016 IK3MAC RO O 1p IK3

Total 2p x 2mult = 4p

Heard were: SV1BTR called often but qrz and seems Murphy

was still playing tricks with me, OK1MS qrz calling me

or pa3cob ? ), OH6CH wkng Jimmy vy strong !! , LZ2US

calling PJ4EME, IK1FJI qso IK3MAC, IK2DDR qso IK3MAC,

RA6DA calling PJ4EME, SV3AAF and a lot calling in

the pileup b4 2nd half , but have to listen the recording,

but it was a nice view so many traces in Spectran !

Special thanks to Alex and Graziano, so this was not

a replay of last month.

I did not use a preamp this time, so could have heard

stations even better, but working on a pa3biy lna.

After the sporadic E season I plan changing the 2xgi7

for 1 gs35 because I keep on compromising this way

and hope also to call cq myself in the future !

Congratulations to all who worked Rene from PJ4

and I also got a nice email from JH0WJF who also

was active during the 1st pass. I hope to meet

Noriyuki in one of next time events, just as all

the others on my wish list !!!!

Hello !

At first I would like to thank all for qsos.

Unfortunatelly I was not able to be qrv during first part od Dubus Event

- there was a thunderstorm in my qth and I was forced to turn my rig off.

Before part 2 I was hunting for PJ4EME and I was lucky to put them into

my log:) PJ4EME#288 cw, 56 dxcc cw eme!

Congratulations for whole team for successfull expedition.

Conditions were very good during most of time and signals were loud.

Some stations were louder than usually.

G4DHF

This is mostly a listening report. I was QRV for the 2nd Period and found conditions to be excellent with a great deal of activity. Ive made some recording of the signals, which sounded like the CW QRP end of 20M. In the week before this event I rebuilt x4 of the dipoles and re-aligned all x8 antennas, resulting in a much-improved return loss. I spent nearly 3 hours listening and calling PJ4EME, who concentrated much of the activity. I heard nothing from them in the 1st hour but was receiving wonderful signals from EU. IK2DDR was 539, RA6DA 539, SV1BTR 549, SP7DCS 539, LZ2US 549 to name but a few. I lost count of the number of stations I heard calling. They became readable with me at around 0800z and peaked 429. When I did tune away from 144062 there was still a great deal of activity with some huge signals. I only wish that PJ4EME could have been active for longer, but can imagine the CW "mush" they were receiving from their side and also their need to fulfil other obligations.

I finally started tuning the band with only about 1 hour left and worked, OK1MS, SP7DCS, SV1BTR, OH6CH and SM2CEW. After the event I worked F3VS, exchanging 549/539 reports. Im sorry not to have been active for longer as I missed so many stations in this event, particularly several from NA.

On a positive note, Im well underway with building my new x8 H/B antennas, which are 3WL long. Ive cut and mounted all the elements and will align the system in the coming weeks. They will be a direct replacement for my existing 2.2WL designs and provide an additional 1.5dB of additional gain. Heres hoping.

Hi All,

I was on for much of the second session and !!!! Just to report

that I worked noone and heard only David G4DHF,Both David's and my

echoes were very strong,so I don,t quite understand why I did not hear

anyone else.

Well done to all who were on.

Dear All,

I was very happy to copy a good number of stations

during the 144Mhz eme activity event of June 10, 2007.

Have been QRV during both windows and my activity

report is the following:

Stations Worked:

01:23 RU1AA O RO

02:21 JH0WJF RO O

02:46 SV1BTR 549 529

03:26 IK2DDR RO O

09:15 YO2AMU RO O

09:42 OK1MS RO O

Stations called, NOT completed: PJ4EME, SP7DCS, F1FLA

There was quite a pile-up on PJ4 expedition frequency

as I could copy 2 to 3 stations on average calling

during the odd minutes between 08 to 09 UTC that I was

monitoring 062.

Congratulations to the 10 stations that managed to

work the expedition and to the organisers who devoted

time to work CW-random on 2m EME.

I will be QRV on 432Mhz cw-eme activity event next

weekend 17 June 07. See you then.

Many 73s de sv3aaf, Petros

 

 

SV1BTR, SV9CVY

Thanks again for a GREAT 2m CW EME DUBUS activity event! Enjoyed it

very much hearing and decoding signals in & above the noise floor

myself. See u in the 70cm cw eme DUBUS activity event 17 June

0700-0900 & 1700-1900. My friend Petros SV3AAF will also be on, for

his arrival to the wonderful world of 70cm cw EME!

Above all, i would like to say a big BRAVO to PE1L and PA3CNX of

PJ4EME expedition for standing up to their words and indeed working cw

eme; together with DL8YHR OJ0 expedition, those two are the only 2m

expeditions i can remember in the last 4+ yrs which announced mixed

operation and kept their word in practice.

Regardless of possible challenges other expeditions might have had

with lesser pwr etc., which was never a significant barrier for at

least a number of cw eme ops to overcome.

Moreover, a BIG thanks goes to the cw operator, local island ham PJ4LS

who made it indeed possible by doing the keying with pleasure! FB work!

I do believe PJ4 can work a number of more cw stations on random if

they try again in the coming weekend. Stations need to spread out 1KHz

though and not everyone call on the same frequency.

This is a combined 2m activity report of SV9CVY & SV1BTR:

SV9CVY:

Michael made his start in cw eme mostly spending time in listening. He

worked SV1BTR twice and IK3MAC after some local noise cleared, as

earlier in the day he copied him in QSOs with others, vy loud. Heard

well and called for long time F1FLA, heard also were RU1AA (vy good

signal) and SP7DCS.

He is working in improving the station, especially with respect to

antenna positioning at this stage.

Running 4*8el. H pol and 2*12el. V pol. For now he is interested in

skeds with optimized 4 long yagi & above stations only. If you are

interested, pls e-mail me.

SV9CVY and visitor DL5MAE in CVY's shack

 

SV1BTR:

worked 25 QSOs. 22 of them during the activity event where i was

active for a total of 3.5 hrs in both slots.

Would like to thank and congratulate the following Braveheart stations

worked in CW EME on Sunday June 10 (well done for higher activity from

Russia and US):

RU1AA (vy glad to hear u Alex!) RO&569/O&569, IK2DDR O/RO, RN6MT

539/559, OK1MS O&539/539, YO2AMU 539/559, SV3AAF 529/549 (FB

operator!), JH0WJF (vy glad to hear u Noriyuki) O&539/RO&539, OH6CH

(welcome back!) 539/549, SV9CVY O/RO (wkd twice within 1.5 hr for

his first ever EME QSOs - congrats!), CT1HZE 539/539, DL5MAE

(welcome back from KM24bt vy successful HSCW MS expedition in Gavdos

island in SV9), F5JNX O/RO, F1FLA 559/539, IK3MAC 579/559, K9DX

549/559 (vy glad to hear u again, beautiful signal!), SP7DCS 549/559,

EA3DXU O/539, I3EVK O/RO, DF1CF O/RO, G4DHF 539/549, IK1FJI

549/549, N9JIM 549/559 (tnx for new # FB signal also!), RA6DA 549/549.

Heard Oene PA3CWN at the end of 1st slot but had to QSY urgently to

another obligation so sorry i could not come back to you.

Highlight of the day was working PJ4EME for their 2nd CW EME QSO.

After our qso i was monitoring their cw operation and their signal was

an average of 529, ranging from 519 to 539 at times for the 2 hrs i

listened. Every 1 hour polarity was changing 90 degrees.

Hugh pileup and indeed a pity that no preamp, audio filter and

headphones had been used; I am sure they could have worked at least 2

times the number of stations if those prerequisites for cw eme work

were met. Nevertheless, a fine effort and those 10 CW RANDOM EME QSOs

PJ4EME expedition made so far, to me says it all for the challenge &

value of achievement, this mode entails.

Hello All,

Have been qrv in the Dubus event, but unfortunately

due to bad antenna system no qsoos this time.

However without preamp received SV1BTR qrz,

LZ2US qrz, F1FLA, YO2AMU strong but calling

someone else, OK1MS ?? very faint.

Sigs were from time to time loud and hope dry

wx will return soon for repairments :-)

SV3AAF

Hello,
I was very happy to be back on EME after 12 years of
inactivity mostly thanks to the motivation from my
good old friend SV1BTR and of course QTH conditions
allowing me to have EME antennas without bothering
anyone!

Stations worked on 2m CW random during May 13th event
were:

SV1BTR 559/529
OK1MS O/RO
IK2DDR O/RO
LZ2US O/RO
IK1FJI O/RO

Stations heard: YO2AMU (very loud), F1FLA

Activity was low, I would assume due to the digital
contest running in parallel.
Variable faraday conditions were evident towards the
end of the first window and throughout the second.
Intermittent electrical noise also effected my
reception during second window.

Equipment on 2m are 4x2,1wl yagis, 8877, 0,2dbNF
preamp. I will be working on the system so it
improves, it was completed just a few days ago and
this was the first run.

As soon as I receive a better 0,4dbNF preamp on 70cm I
will be active there too, the rest of the system is
installed and it is 4x11wl crossed-yagis, GS23. I
estimate in a couple of weeks I will be ready for the
first run on the activity weekend of June 6-7th.

SV1BTR

Hi all

a pleasure to be qrv in DUBUS 2m CW EME activity event of May 13.

I was active for a total of 4 hrs in total. Worked the following fine stations
and operators who i would like to thank:
IK2DDR 529/549, YO2AMU 529/559, SV3AAF 529/559 (welcome back Petros!!!), OK1MS
549/0, LZ2US 569/O, F1FLA 559/O+539, CT1HZE 529/539, IK1FJI 549/539, YU7AA
O/RO, G4DHF 539/549, RA6DA 539/539, OK1VVP O+559/RO+539, ON4DPX O/RO.

Big thanks also to all who called me, much appreciated. Conditions in 2nd slot
were 2-3db down than usual in both polarities, i therefore missed 3 stations i
could not get the full callsign out (no guesswork in my shack!).

See u in the event of June 10!
My good friend SV9CVY will also be qrv shortly as he had some unfortunate relay
problems which occured on Saturday night:-(

Hello Friends,
I was not QRV for the 1st Session but was active for the 2nd. Strong winds and driving rain were forecast for the UK today and so I was not sure if I would be active. The rain's arrived but the wind is moderate. I was hearing excellent echoes before the 2nd Session and at 10.00z prompt was called by Stan, OK1MS who had a good 529 signal. I went on to work LZ2US, SV1BTR (539/549), IK1FJI (539/539) & YO2AMU. I heard F1FLA at 539 but he was busy with a mini pile-up, so I QSY'd to call CQ on 046. When I later returned to his QRG he was gone! I heard Joe, CT1HZE at 529 working SV1BTR, but unfortunately never came across him later. I heard and called SM2?MS, but conditions after the 1st hour started to deteriorate and I lost my echoes for the next hour. I was about this time that some G's were working Sp.E into EA6 and I4. All in all, another enjoyable event. Here's to the next....

Was only on for about 1 hour today, too many other things to
do, also today was my birthday and that got me a bit sidetracked.

Anyway, SV1BTR was solid 559 all the time also IK1FJI 539 or so.
However I wanted to make QSOs on my own CQs but that didnt
work out too great. Sent Os to YO2AMU for 10 minutes but he
just kept on calling me, then I said to myself "heck with it"
and pulled the BIG switch.
There is always next time!

Hello EME:r
As you know i sold my 17,5dBd 2X16 yagi and ALU tower last weekend so i could not take part this time. Good news is that i have bought back my old 4X14 V/H array and have now started to work to get that up during the summer.  I have today put up my small mini tower and preampbox to as soon as i have the antennas back home mount 2 of them to be qrv again with 18dBd gain in both polarisations. This will happen very fast.

I will then during the summer mount my new steel tower and put up all 4 yagis with as short feedercables as possible and also polarity control in my RX so i am able to hear  V / H  +45   -45

I hope the 21,2dBd  X yagi will open to have better luck in our monthly CW EME activity besides the ordinary  EME contests.

GL to all and i hope to meet you very soon on CW EME.

73 Hakan SM7WSJ
PS: besides this i also work to get my dish up in the air.
 

 

SM2CEW
I was not able to spend much time in the activity event this weekend, other committments
and visitors gave little time for EME.

I did manage to get on the band around 11.00 GMT and heard SV3AAF and others, but only worked LZ2US. Conditions were not good, all Eu were vertical here.

Hopefully able to spend some more time the next event.

Hello All,

Being QRV again for the two slots, gave me 4 qso's complete and 1 not completed

Sometimes signals wer very loud and I had much qsb on the signals.

In the second slot there was a complete Faraday lockout for over an hour, so the

neighbour thought "now I can make some noise", because I had lot's of engine qrn.

I am very glad with DK3EE as my 26 th CW initial and Tom's signals were loud

Also very good signal of Valter and that was a fast qso for me.

I still had some problems with my amplifier and therefore my last qso with Chris

SP7DCS could not be finished. It was also at the end of the 2nd leg and I guess

moon was pretty low with Chris. Next time more luck Chris !.

I have seen lots of signals on Spectran but not all identified.

Heard were G4DHF (never heard David that loud) , LZ2US qrz, OK1MS qrz,

SP7DCS both calls but no cfm, YO2AMU partial calling, IK2DDR calling Tom

I hope to hear you all again in April contest !!!

We had a snow storm with high winds so I was only QRV for just over 1

hour during the 2nd window of the event. My noise level was quite high.

I heard IK3MAC on 144.045. I also heard someone on 144.053 and

I called QRZ but could not pull them out.

Greetings Fellow EMEr's,

I was QRV for some time during both Activity Periods today. The wx has been deteriorating all day and I had to go QRT early during the 2nd Session as the wind speed increased. Up until then, I had difficulty in turning the array into the head wind and even more keeping it tracked on the Moon. My local power line noise was high until I had 5 degrees elevation, when I started to hear my own echoes. Conditions were highly variable with rapid QSB on most H-Pol only stations. Signals were very loud at times, including Peter's, SM2CEW who was the loudest I had ever heard him at 549 in the afternoon session. Most of the "usual gang" were worked. It was a great pleasure, as always.

At first I would like to thanks all of you for nice qsos during the weekend.
To be honest I did not remeber so bad conditions during the time with so
low predicted degradation.
Most of time all signals were probably in V pol and I did not hear my echo.
So, it was hard time for a H pol only stations.
What worse my preamp went dead at Friday evening and I had to use my old
poor backup preamp and I was a little deaf.
Also high wind and rain did not help. I changed headphones 3 times
thining something is wrong with them hi hi but it was only Faraday ;)

I was QRV for a while in DUBUS ACTIVTY (2m) yesterday.
I enjoyed it very much working 7 stations with high skilled
operating procedure.
I was only on during 2nd window (north american), however, no
NA-station worked/heard. During first window we had vy high
winds which calmed down during afternoon.
Some more stations heard and called but no reaction. Loudest of them 
was DK3EE. He was really loud but I couldnt get his attention.

The moon declination was low, and therefore this event was again somewhat
noisy in my QTH. My moon window was also rather limited because of the
declination, so I could not be on full time.

However, it was good fun, echoes were good and some stations were really
strong; IK3MAC, SV1BTR, F3VS and G4DHF.

Polarization in my QTH was mixed V/H most of the time, indicating 45 deg
Faraday. I found myself listening a lot, but put these fine stations in the
log: YO2AMU, SV1BTR, OK1MS, IK3MAC, G4DHF, IK2DDR, SP7DCS, DL5MAE, I3EVK.

Two new inititals worked outside the AW times, ON4DPX and F5JNX, plus a few
extra QSO's with "the Dubus AW crowd", thanks!

Heard with good signals were PA3CWN, G4KWQ, OH6CH, CT1HZE, EA3DXU, LZ2US
and SM7WSJ.
Looking forward to the Dubus CW EME contest!

SV1BTR

I was QRV on Saturday for the DUBUS 2m cw eme activity event of March. My
activity time was in both time slots for a total of 5.5 hours, as i lost the
moon at 14:00 utc.

Worked 24 stations on random most in the order of 529-579 signals, including
3 new initials.
90% of stations were coming in V pol. but later realized i have water in
various parts of my H pol. array so i am qrt until i repair the system
hopefully in mid April.

Thank you all for the fine 2m activity.

I hope you have sorted out your wind damage.I was very lucky here
with no major damage to the antennas (20 m Monobander gamma match has
moved , the 2m yagis were blown out of align on the stacking frame ( The
tower is always tilted over with the reflectors on the ground when not
in use ,so no real problem to realign them.

Hello,

After missing the first event to QRL this year I've been QRV during the

February-event on Saturday Feb. 3rd.

The first station I heard in the morning was IK3MAC and we QSO'd

easely. Giavanno peaked up to 559 by times. Seldom heard him so well.

Promising???

After that the results were not so good. I found signals shifted by

Faraday and having a marginal station it was not easy to copy full

calls.

The eveningsession was not much better. EU-EU faded out here. So I

found marginal signals and did not TX.

Hrd but not worked were:

F1FLA

G4DHF

SV1BTR

SP7DCS

CT1HZE

OK1MS

IK2DDR

So for the log:

Date Call Reports Points Multi

20070203 IK3MAC O / RO 1p IK3

Score: 1 x 1 = 1 points

My station used:

RX 0.22 dB, 1 kW, 13 el DJ9BV (3.2 wl), full elevation.

Later that evening I tried with IK1FJI and OK1MS (sked), both nothing

heard.

I realise that I'm in desperate need of the possibility to use H and V

polarisation to overcome the problems I face with Faraday. My station

does not have the reserves to QSO when Spacial-offset and Faraday

collide.

So I will try to use this spring to complete 2 x XP20 antenna's. I'm

sure that with this setup it must be possible to QSO most 4 Yagi-

stations who have the patience to try.

Hi Peter and All!

I was able to repair damages made by strong

winds in January.

In first pass I was running QRP only as I had high SWR. Faraday was

cooperative only for EU - W path, it was difficult to work EU - EU

having only H pol. I managed to improve SWR before second pass, but it

was during TVI time so I also had to decrease power and I was not from

the start...

VA3TO

Murphy's law struck the VA3TO QTH during the DUBUS event this weekend :(

I operated for just over 2 hours during the first leg but had some

technical problems as well as a strong birdie right at 144.045

(you know what that means) and a high noise level across the band.

Right at the beginning of the event I heard IK3MAC calling CQ so I

replied but then I had no TX power on the next exchange. After a few

minutes of investigation I discovered that my amplifier keying circuit

had failed but I was able to quickly repair it. Then I sat and listened

to Graziano working several stations like PA3EME, N5BO and XE2AT when he

was coming in strong. All of a sudden a very strong biridie showed up on

144.045 that wiped him out. Occasionally the birdie would subside but

whenever I tried to reply to Graziano the birdie would pop back up. So I

tuned up the band and heard CQs at .047, .048 and .052. I called QRZ

but then the noise level would increase. Sorry to those stations that I

tried to work but could not hear. Someone or something did not want me

to have any success this time around so I shut down the equipment and

went to bed.

Congratulations to all of the new stations that participated in the event !

Hello Enthusiasts,

Having been house-bound with the flu this week, I was unable to operate in the 1st Session. The wx was so pleasant and warm today that I decided to make repairs to my antenna array, in readiness for the 2nd Pass. I was pleased that I did as I found that the array performed just like when it was first commissioned. Conditions were variable, being good at my Moonrise and varying between 90% to Q5 solid echoes at 539. It was a pleasure working so many stations.

IK3MAC, YO2AMU, SV1BTR, OK1MS, RN6MT#, SP7DCS, OH6CH#, CT1HZE & SM7WSJ

I made x2 initials, which was pleasing. I also heard Roy, G3ZIG via the Moon, at times very well, but his echoes were also highly variable and suffered the affects of Mr.Faraday. Thanks to all for the great fun. Good luck to all.

Hi Moonbouncers

I was active partly because my FT847 leav me when propagation was on top! No

power out! First leg the conditions were strange with a lot of electric noise ...not

so much stations heard. Good echoes. Second leg conditions were excellent but using a transverter(20 W) the output power was half!

Nice signals from SM2CEW ,CT1HZE and SM7GVF

As expected , low participation of other continents!

Hello Peter, my log is a bit poor this month, because i

was active just on 1st window.Usually i prefer to not TX

with eme power, between 17:00 and 22:00, due TVI andin

this case, with Moonrice, so with low Moon...........

I have been on a little bit after the 2nd window and i

worked a couple of stations.

Here my log for 1st window:
