Hello everybody.

The EME conditions over here are really strange. For hours we do not copy anything from the moon. We have to switch all the time between H and V. I wonder if that's the same in the rest of the world or if that's just here. However, we could log quite some stations. Here the stations that we worked (some dupes, bold calls are first 8Q-xx):

50 MHz:
K6MYC, OH2BC, OH6MIK, W1JJ, W7GJ
144 MHz:
9A9T, DB0GSN, DD0VF, DD7KE, DF0BRB, DF2ZC, DG1VL, DH3YAK, DJ3VI, DJ4TC, DJ8MS, DJ9MG, DK0KK, DK0VH, DK2PH, DK3BU, DK3WG, DK4TG, DK5LA, DK5SO, DK5YA, DK7KF, DK7KF, DK8ZJ, DL0DBR, DL1DWI, DL1RNW, DL4WO, DL7APV, DL7FF, DL8EBW, DL8GP, DL8YHR, DL9MS, DM1CG, DP5G, EA2AGZ, EA6VQ, EI4DQ, ES3RF, ES5PC, ES6RQ, F1AFJ, F1DUZ, F1TE, F6APE, F6BKI, F6HVK, F8DGY, F8DO, G4CBW, G4EZP, G4FUF, G4ZFJ, G8VYK, GM6VXB, HA0DU, HA0HO, HA6NQ, HA6NQ, HA8CE, HB9Q, I1ANP, I2FAK, I2RV, I3EVK, I3LDP, I3MEK, I3YXQ, IK1FJI, IK1UWL, IK2DDR, IK2DDR, JE1TNL, JH0MHE, JH2COZ, JH5FOQ, JM1GSH, JM1WBB, JO1LVZ, JR3REX, JS3CTQ, K1JT, K2BLA, K5QE, K6MYC, KB8RQ, KD3UY, N5YA, N7SC, NT0V, OE6IWG, OH2PI, OH6ZZ, OH7HXH, OH8MGK, OK1CU, OK2UZL, OK7FA, OM3BC, ON7UC, OY4TN, OZ1LPR, PA0JMV, PA0ZH, PA1GYS, PA2CHR, PA3CEE, PA3CMC, PA3CSG, PA3DOL, PA3FPQ, PE1L, PE1LWT, PF7M, PI9CM, RA6AX, RA6DA, RK3FG, RN6BN, RU1AA, RU1AC, RV3IG, RV9UV, RX1AS, S52LM, S54T, SM2A, SM5CFS, SM5CFS, SM5CUI, SM5DIC, SM7GVF, SP2OFW, SV8CS, SV8CS, SW8KOU, SW8KOU, SW8NAC, UA3MBJ, UA3PTW, UA4AQL, UA9SL, UT5UAS, UT6UG, UT6UG, VE5UF, VK2KU, VK3AXH, W5UN, W5UN, W7GJ, W7GJ, WA2ODO, WA3BZT, WA3QPX, WA4NJP, YO3DDZ, YO9FRJ, YT3I, YU7AA, YU7XL, ZL2DX, ZL3TY, ZS6OB

432 MHz:

1296 MHz:

DJ9YW, ES5PC, G4CCH, HB9Q, OH2DG, OK1DFC, OK1KIR, PA3CSG, PY2BS, RW3BP,

Our further schedule looks like this:

 

Friday, 26.March 2010

1800-2200UTC on 432.093 JT65B TX first, only window to NA.

 

Saturday, 27.March 2010

1900-2100UTC on 432.093 JT65B TX first

 

Sunday, 28.March 2010

2100-2330UTC on 1296.090 JT65C TX first (I do RX on my own echo frequency. Otherwise its too difficult to search the band. I TX always on the 090.) Chance again for East Coast USA.

 

We will be on 6m for the moonset and moonrise with elevation up to 20deg. We received quite some stations but they did not copy us. Please remember that "OOO" means that you copied both calls. "RO" mean that you copied both calls and the report. Press "F5" in WSJT if you want to learn more about what message to send. We hope to get some more stations in the log.

At 2m we now have some additional limitation with elevation. We will not operate anymore if our elevation is higher than about 70deg. We are able to RX and TX both, H or V.
