Future Activity

Next activity will be on:
Hopefully on 24/25 November in the final part of the ARRL EME Contest - weather permitting

23cm

All that you need to make a JT65c QSO with me is >20dBi antenna and >100W... why not give it a try sometime, you might be surprised.

I can be QRV again over the next few days on CW and JT65c.
If anyone else wants to try then please E Mail me - howard(at)g4cch(dot)com

When I am QRV (but not during contests), you can usually find me on 1296.015 CW or 1296.085 JT65c. I have Internet access in the shack, and check HB9Q's logger and ON4KST microwave chat for possible activity. 

13cm

Please email me if you want a sked, otherwise you should find me during the various activity weekends... I will announce when I am going to be on.

 

Worked All States (WAS)

So far I have had 23cm EME QSO's with stations in 38 of the 50 US States. To complete WAS I need the following 13 states:  AL, AR, DE, KY, MN, MS, MT, NE,  OR, SC, SD & TN.

I would like to hear from anyone who could activate these states on 23cm EME either on CW or JT65... please email me if you have a 23cm EME capable station or have plans to build one, or if you intend to do an expedition to any of the listed states.
