This weekend is the last weekend of the 2018 ARRL EME contest. Bernd DL7APV
worked 100 stations on 432 using both JT and CW with his 128 Yagi array last
month during the second weekend of the contest. He has worked stations running
as little as a few watts and a single Yagi. If you can, please try to work him
at moonrise using JT65B. Anyone with a 432 beam and any decent power will be
able to decode and work him. Moonrise in Philadelphia is at 5:24 PM on Friday
at 66 degrees. On Saturday eve the moon rises in Philly at 6:13 at 63 degrees.
You can work the moon through about 20 degrees elevation with even a single
Yagi as it has lobes up there. Best to have your computer setup and running
JT56B. You should also join the HB9Q EME logger https://logger.hb9q.ch/ and
that will assist you in seeing what others are doing on 432 (and other bands).
You can also sked with Bernd if possible at email@example.com
NC1I and HB9Q also have some of the biggest signals on 432 EME and can also be
easily worked the same way. I'm trying to get more of you to make at least 1
EME QSO and this is the easiest way to do it. Please let me know your results.
