I will be trying the first trip to my northern property this year for a try at 2016 EME. Because I spend 3 hours driving to and from the site and another 3 hours setting up and taking down the gear, I was hoping to try to line up several scheduled EME attempts on that day. I will be using JT65C. I am waiting to hear back from several people, but there is a window between about UT 19:15 and 20:45 that might work (I am waiting to hear from Howard Ling G4CCH). If you are not working or traveling that evening, it seems this would be about 20:15–21:45 local time for you with a moon elevation of about 28–40 degrees.

If this week does not work, I hope we can try again sometime later this summer. I work about half the weekends, which is not good for this hobby! I have attached pictures of my current 12 foot stress dish and the parts I am making for my planned 16 foot permanent dish for 23 cm. As you can see, I use a septum feed.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
