20 meter EME net

2m EME AntennasPlease remember that the 20 meter EME net meets on saturday and sunday on 14.345 Mhz at 1500 UTC during the winter in the northern hemisphere. I start with the antenna on europe.

We need the participation of all possible members of the EME gang to exchange ideas.
Among us we have a vast wealth of knowledge. Individually we are limited.

Please join us on saturday and sunday and share some of your brilliant ideas with those of us who have struggled to become or are learning to become proficient at our passion.

The newcomer may be surprized at what he may have to share and the old timers already know the vast amount of experience they have.

Please! Let’s share that knowledge with each other.

PI9CAM active during the Jamboree

Camras Dish Dwingelo The NetherlandsDuring the Jamboree on the Air, PI9CAM will be active mainly on RX. We will run the WebSDR on 70 cm and on 23 cm. On 70 cm several small 70 cm JOTA stations will try to see their signal on the moon via our WebSDR. We hope to run the system both nights (October 14/15 and 15/16). During the second night we will also be able to TX, so if JOTA activity gets low we can make some EME QSO’s. Look for us on the HB9Q loggers. Team PI9CAM

Update: Nov 26, 2011

The use of the dish in Dwingeloo was a great success during the Jota 2011. You can read the complete article on:
