23cm after SSPA upgrade. Some issues with balance to be resolved, but 1KW easily possible again. Also had some switching PSU failures, which I'm working on.

6cm was quickly installed on the dish to work the guys at the EME Conference. Had issues with drive level, unfortunately caused some damage to driver stages while trying to diagnose the fault. I have the parts now to complete repairs, and will learn lessons from the experience...

Next activity will be on:
23cm EME - on 12th to 14th September 2014
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.
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 37 of the 50 US States. To complete WAS I need the following 13 states: AL, AR, DE, KY, MN, MS, MT, NE, NV, 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.
